A certificate confirming current marital status, e.g. unmarried, separated, divorced, widow/er or marital status unknown. Note that this certificate only contains information on current marital status, along with the date of the last change of registration. Information regarding former spouses, deceased spouses or any other change in marital status is not included. If any such information is required, it is necessary to order a certificate of marital history.
Registers Iceland now issues electronic certificates that are available in individuals’ postbox on Ísland.is. Electronic certificates are fully equivalent to paper certificates and are easy to forward as needed. The electronic certificates have an electronic signature from Registers Iceland that is very secure and trackable.
When processed the electronic certificate will be available in the postbox of the person named in the certificate. The exception being when parents or legal guardians order certificates for children or when death certificates are ordered. In those cases the certificate will be available in the postbox of the person who ordered the certificate.
