Re: Registering marriage in Switzerland - confusing!

According to this document, it should go through the Swiss Emabssy in Mexico, which will forward it to the relevant autorities in Switzerland.

There is some more information in Spanish
https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/m...atrimonio.html

Here some general information what has to be done when you got married abroad:
https://www.eda.admin.ch/countries/m...tat-civil.html
https://www.bj.admin.ch/dam/data/bj/...slandehe-f.pdf

The last one also says it should be done throught the embassy/consulate abroad. But it also mentions that you might be able to register through the canton:

For canton NE that would be: https://www.ne.ch/autorites/DJSC/JUS...s/accueil.aspx
Link #4 is relevant when one of the spouses is Swiss:

"Les citoyennes et citoyens suisses, ainsi que les étrangères et étrangers qui ont une relation avec un citoyen ou une citoyenne suisse en vertu du droit de la famille ou qui sont domiciliés en Suisse et dont les données d'état civil sont disponibles dans le registre de l'état civil sont tenus d'annoncer leur mariage célébréà l'étranger à la représentation de la Suisse à l'étranger."

A relevant part for UK and Mexican spouses married in MX is also in the first link:

"TOUS LES ACTES MEXICAINS D’ETAT CIVIL AINSI QUE LA DECLARATION TENANT LIEU DE SERMENT DOIVENT ETRE LEGALISES PAR L’APPOSITION DE L’APOSTILLE.

L’apostille doit être procurée dans l’état (canton) auprès du «Secretariat de Gobierno» où l’acte a été établi."

In theory, all is needed is an apostille from Mexico. This text, stamp and signatures made by a notary public on the back of the document https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostille_Convention
