Getting married in Mongolia
An Australian citizen looking to get married in Mongolia will be asked to prove that they are not currently legally married. The marriage celebrant will advise what proof is required, which may include Certificate of No Impediment to Marriage. Local authorities may require you to have a HIV/AIDS test in cases of marriage to a Mongolian national.
Before the married name is accepted for inclusion into an Australian passport and if either spouse wishes to change their name (and they were born in Australia) they will need to apply for a Name Change Certificate with the Australian Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages in the state they were born.
