What is NSW Single Status Certificate?
Single Status Certificate verifies that you’ve not been married in NSW during a specified period of time. You can apply for a single status certificate in person at a service centre, or by mail. Certificates are sent to you by the NSW Registry of Births Deaths & Marriages, using registered post. You cannot get a certificate from a service centre. If you’re planning to marry overseas, or if you’re returning to your country of residence to get married, you may need a single status certificate.
