"We made it very clear about the conditions [for marriages] two people who are getting married and two witnesses, no crowds.

"Because the majority of marriage officers are ministers of religion, we have also said the same thing - if a minister of religion is going to marry couples in their office, the couple must come with only two witnesses. We don't crowds there."

Other services that will reopen at Home Affairs offices include the registration of births, the re-issuing of birth certificates, and the collection of IDs.
