online marriage registration
New Zealand has introduced a new online marriage registration service designed to make life easier for the 55 000 New Zealanders who get married each year. Both residents and non-residents may use the online service provided they apply at least three working days in advance. Applicants must then visit a local Registrar of Marriages to finish the process by signing a Statutory Declaration. Obtaining a marriage license is mandatory under New Zealand law and this new initiative will help to streamline this procedure for busy newlyweds.
