Certification of Marriageability [Ehefähigkeitszeugnis]
To be able to marry [Heirat] in Austria, foreign citizens must present a certification of marriageability from their home country.
Depending upon the agreements made between Austria and the country concerned (Germany, Italy, Switzerland) the certification of marriageability can be obtained through the Austrian registry of births, deaths and marriage [Standesamt] or be applied for at the responsible home country authority or diplomatic mission in Austria (embassy, consulate, etc.).
