Corona update 16.04.21

The marriage office is still closed, and we do not know, when we are allowed to open again.

Travelling to Denmark, due to the covid-19 situation, is only allowed if you have a recognizable reason, and a marriage ceremony isn`t classified as such.

For this reason, we do not currently issue  appointments

As soon as the situation changes, we will inform you at this site.

We  also recommend you to stay informed of the latest travel restrictions for Denmark, as well as any other special restrictions in Denmark, including the closure of public offices in relation to COVID-19 -
