Since 2013, it got easier to getting married in Italy. There are 4 simple steps that each British national, resident in the UK, must follow to get the right paperwork for marrying in Italy.
STEP 1 – CERTIFICATE OF NO IMPEDIMENT
You need to obtain what’s called a Certificate of No Impediment, which is issued in the UK. To do this you must give notice of marriage to your local registry office.
STEP 2 – THE STATUTORY DECLARATION
While you are waiting for your Certificate of No Impediment you should make a statutory declaration before a solicitor or public notary in the UK (based on our company’s experience with other clients it would be better to go through a solicitor which are normally cheaper). We can send the declaration form that will be required to you via email.
STEP 3 – LEGALISING YOUR DOCUMENTS FOR THE ITALIAN AUTHORITIES
When you have your Certificate of No Impediment and you have made your Statutory Declaration, you need to send them both to the FCO Legalisation Office in Milton Keynes for each to be legalised with a Hague Apostille.
STEP 4 – TRANSLATION OF YOUR CERTIFICATE OF NO IMPEDIMENT (CNI)
Once both these documents have been legalised, you will then need to have the legalised Certificate of No Impediment translated. As it will become an Italian legal document it should be translated by a translator based in Italy and sworn before the Italian courts or an Italian Justice of the Peace.
