To start the process, you must first register an intention to marry with the Department of Home Affairs and apply for a marriage certificate. Couples must apply for a Department of Home Affairs marriage certificate at least three months prior to the wedding date.

  • Home affairs marriage forms are available on request. Submit the forms along with the relevant supporting documentation:

  • Identification documents, such as a South African ID card

  • Both passports, if one partner is not South African

  • A complete BI-31 form, which declares that you may legally marry

  • Minors under the age of 18 must present written consent from both parents, and/or Form DHA-32. For boys under the age of 18 and girls under the age of 15, consent from the Minister of Home Affairs is also necessary.
