The government has agreed to announce its plans for the extension or removal of temporary border controls and entry bans latest by 1st June.
Update 28 April 2020.
Extensions of Danish Lockdown.
Danish Prime minister Mette Frederiksen has announced that Denmark will start to open again and slowly end the lockdown in phases if progress continues over the next week.
Danish borders and town halls will remain closed until the 10th of May - no weddings before this date.
The Agency of Family Law still working and processing the applications, so we continue to get approvals.
Good news in difficult times.
Due to an extraordinary situation in the world, the Family Court has decided to help us, wedding planners and you, the couples who has applied for or already has been issued a Marriage approval and not be able to marry in Denmark, due to the corona-virus situation.
Danish Authorities will re-open an application and issue a new certificate without paying a new fee, in cases where couples cannot be married within the validity period, if this is due to entry restrictions in Denmark, or other restrictions in Denmark as a result of COVID-19.
It will not be necessary to resubmit the application or resubmit all documents. Contact us when the restrictions are lifted , and we will send a confirmation letter in which the couple, with their signatures, are asked to confirm their information submitted in the previous application, and if necessary to submit new documentation for legal stay (evt. Visa).
This means that you can without worries apply now, and we can proceed with your applications and the Authorities will issue a certificate regardless of the period of validity, if the conditions for being married are met.
We receive applications and will book wedding dates as soon as we know when Danish borders are open again.
Please, notice that Danish Authorities are still working and processing the applications, so we continue to get approvals.
The most important thing now is to be flexible with respect to choosing a wedding date. We hope for your understanding and we will be happy to continue our work and give you the best experience.
We wish you good health and a bright future! See you soon in Denmark.
