In order to register a marriage solemnised in Australia or NZ, in the Civil Registry of Marriages in Serbia, it is necessary to provide the following documents:

  1. Completed Application Form (MS WORD or PDF form)
  2. Completed Statement of Spouses (MS WORD or PDF form)
  3. Original Marriage Certificate, legalised by “Apostille” certificate and translated into Serbian language by a certified translator (or by the Consulate).
  4. Photo-copy of Citizenship Certificates of both spouses;
  5. Photo-copy of Passports of both spouses and/or other photo ID.

If you are applying in person, your signatures on the Application form and the Statement will be witnessed by the Consular Officer. If applying by post, your signatures must be witnessed by a Justice of the Piece.

Note: If this is not the first marriage, the divorced spouse's Birth Certificate from the Civil Registry of Births in Serbia, should be annotated that the previous marriage has been dissolved.

Application fee: AUD$ 29.00

Translation fee from English to Serbian language: AUD $78.00 per document.

Fees are payable by cash if lodging in person, or by bank cheque or money order (in the name of “the Consulate General of the Republic of Serbia") if lodging by mail. 

If applying in person, an appointment is required, by booking on-line in the e-CONSULATE.

Please Note: all documents issued by foreign authorities (AUS/NZ) must be legalised by Apostille, in order to be accepted by the Serbian authorities. Apostille certificates are issued by the relevant government department - in Australia: Australian Passports Office Authentications Section (Ph: 1300 935 260 or visit www.smartraveller.gov.au) - in NZ: Department of Internal Affairs (Ph: 0800 872 675 or visit www.govt.nz/authentications).
