You can use a marriage certificate to prove that a marriage has been registered in Finland. A marriage certificate may be required e.g. when you register your marriage abroad.
The following information is included in the certificate when you order a standard certificate via the self-service. A standard certificate means that the certificate always contains the same information and the selected optional information:
- Date of birth (or personal identity code)
- Marital status
- Details of your current marriage
- Your spouse's name and date of birth.
In addition, you can select your former names and the start and end of your former marriages on the certificate.
If you need other information, order the certificate by email, phone or a form.
How to order certificates
You can order a marriage certificate of yourself. Certificates ordered and delivered through the self-service are cheaper, and you receive certificates quickly. Prices can be found at the bottom of the page.
