Civil Registration
24 October 2020 23:36

Marriage applications are processed by local bodies of the State Registration Service of Ukraine.


Foreigners intending to get married in Ukraine are required to provide the following documents to the competent authorities:

· passport (the original and a copy with a certified translation into Ukrainian);

· a divorce decree, court judgment on marriage annulment or spouse's death certificate (these documents must be presented only by those previously married).

Documents should be legalized (or apostilled if a country of a foreigner’s nationality is a party to the 1961 Hague Convention) and translated into Ukrainian.

The documents required by Ukrainian Legislation for a casket containing the deceased, or mortuary urn, to cross the Ukrainian State Border include:


  1. The deceased's ID, passport or seaman's document
  2. Death Certificate.
  3. Certificate or Affidavit from the USA health authorities stating the cause of death of the individual to be shipped to Ukraine was not a communicable disease.
  4. Document regarding the absence of any extraneous objects inside the casket or mortuary urn.
  5.  Permission from local cemetery in Ukraine.


The originals of aforementioned documents must be apostilled and translated into Ukrainian. The originals of the translations must be notarized and apostilled.

The Consulate General recommends to send the passport of the deceased (included into the document set accompanying a casket or an urn) to the family for further registration and processing by the competent authorities of Ukraine. 

Only the next of kin relatives of the deceased, or persons correspondingly authorized by them, can receive the casket or urn.

The casket containing the body, or mortuary urn, must be properly sealed by the Funeral Home.

There are no strict requirements with respect to the mortuary urn; however, the body should be transported in a metal casket, made of zinc-plated steel or tinplate not more than 0,4 thick.

For the air cargo transportation it is necessary to specify a cemetery in Ukraine as well as Ukrainian Funeral Home which will take care of the casket, or the urn with ashes, in Ukraine. Both are a subject of private choice by the relatives or friends of the deceased person.
