Translation of the Wedding Certificate

March 21, 2007

Before we can register our marriage in Germany, and therefore take advantage of the better tax rates, we need to get an official translation of our Kosekitouhon (family register) that was issued by the town hall in Japan.

Normally in Japan you don’t get a “wedding certificate”; instead they issue a new Kosekitouhon, removing the bride from the existing one for her family. We also got a separate certificate that we need to submit to the British consulate, but it’s the Kosekitouhon that we have to get translated for the German authorities.

The Japanese Consulate-General in Munich will do the translation within a week, for a fee of 9 Euros.
