Municipality of Arnhem: registering a civil partnership

Contrary to the text above, in the municipality of Arnhem you must register a registered partnership:at least 4 weeks before it is concluded.

When planning and registering your registered partnership, you make a number of choices. In any case, this concerns the wedding venue. The costs depend on your wishes and the possibilities in the municipality of Arnhem.

You can also choose your own wedding registrar. See which rules apply to choosing your own wedding registrar.

Wedding venue

You can hold the ceremony for your registered partnership in various places in the municipality of Arnhem. You can choose:

  • a municipal venue
  • fixed venues
  • your own venue

The website offers more information about fixed wedding venues in the municipality of Arnhem and about arranging your own wedding venue.

  • Valid proof of ID for both of you.
  • A copy of the witnesses’ valid proof of ID (a minimum of two, a maximum of four).
  • If you are under guardianship due to alcohol or drug abuse, you will need permission from the guardian. If you are under guardianship because of your physical or mental condition, the sub-district court judge must give permission. You must have arranged the permission you need before the appointment.

Registering an intended civil partnership

You register your registered partnership with the municipality where you want to conclude your partnership. Provide the details of yourself, your partner and your witnesses. This is possible up to four weeks before the registration date. You can make an online appointment for registration at the town hall.
