The Department of Internal Affairs can issue a Certificate of No Impediment to Marriage.

The Department of Internal Affairs website provides comprehensive information about how you apply for this Certificate and the applicable fees. You are also able to download the required BDM 189 form from this website.

Please Note: It is not legally possible for the Certificate of No Impediment to Marriage to be issued in less than 14 days.
