Religious ceremony


Religious ceremony

Religious and civil marriages are not separated in the Czech Republic. If a religious ceremony takes place in Prague a marriage certificate is issued following the ceremony. Such marriage is legal and fully recognized by the respective legal systems around the world. For couples entering a marriage, a standard package of documents will be required for the registration of marriage.

For couples that are already married but wishing to celebrate the sacrament of marriage in religious ceremony the only document that is required by the local Municipal Office is a marriage certificate with a court translation into Czech.

There are additional documents, though, that may be required depending on the type of religious ceremony (Baptism certificate, Marriage Preparation Course Certificate, Letter of delegation from the priest).
