How can a Lithuanian get married in Italy.
Besides Planners, we have been legal consultants for the Italian foreign offices! This experience allowed us to gain deep expertise in foreign affairs.
According to the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of the Republic of Lithuania in Italy, if a Lithuanian citizen is getting married in Italy, they must apply for a certificate of no impediment to the marriage (Nulla Osta) to the town hall Offices in Lithuania.
This is due to Article 116 of the Civil Code which requires that citizens must receive such a certificate from the town hall registrar in Lithuania where the bride or groom have their residency.
Afterward, the documents issued in Lithuania shall be sent to the Lithuanian Consulate in Italy where the Lithuanian Consul will sign and issue the marriage nulla osta that is the final act you need to get married in Italy.
Please note that once the Lithuanian consul has signed the nulla osta, this document must be legalized at the competent Prefettura.
This ensures that all necessary documentation and paperwork is correctly completed and submitted before the marriage can take place. As such, Lithuanian citizens residing in Italy must make sure they obtain this certificate from their local town hall offices in Lithuania.
Please note that Lithuania falls under those cases where a sworn translator does the translation. The translator’s signature must also be legalized with an apostille in such cases.
