An Unabridged Marriage Certificate is a computer printout showing both partners’ details.
Home Affairs use the information as completed on the marriage register
Unabridged Marriage Certificates are official records denoting that two people have participated in a partnership.
If the Vault (marriage register) is not filed in Archives this certificate can not be finalised or printed.
We can only assist if you have a 13 Digit South African ID number for the person whose certificate you are requesting or in the absence of a 13 digit ID number we can assist if you have a copy of the Birth Register
