Letters of No Objection

 If you were asked to provide an Embassy letter stating that the Australian Government does not object to you marrying a foreign national; permanently residing in a foreign country; obtaining the citizenship of a foreign country; or registering the name of a newborn child without a patronymic name, you can download our universal letter of no objection in English and Russian, free of charge. 

Australian citizens do not require the approval of the Australian Government for any of the above activities, if performed in accordance with Australian and local laws and regulations.

For those intending on getting married overseas and where a letter of no objection is refused, a Certificate of No Impediment to Marriage should be applied for ( see 'Notarial Services').
