Desmond Lee on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures for Solemnization and Registration of Marriages) Bill

(Updated: )

From the second half of May this year, couples will be able to exchange marriage vows by live video link, under a proposed law to allow solemnisations and registrations to take place remotely. Social and Family Development Minister Desmond Lee outlined the changes during the second reading of the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures for Solemnization and Registration of Marriages) Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (May 5). The video link option may be extended beyond the COVID-19 pandemic if it is well-received and the integrity of the marriage process is not compromised, he said.
