More and more steam or completely refuse expensive banquets for distant relatives and unfamiliar people from the series "Because it is a Mine cousin and she will be offended if they do not call" And simply sign in the registry office, or choose a symbolic ceremony on the banks of the Caribbean Islands or in Europe (needed to add) for the closest friends and parents. More often fly together, having mastered the courage to repel the father "do everything like people".

If comparisons of all pros and cons ; long-passed stage, and you are already one foot on the plane, and with a nameless finger almost in the ring, do not forget to take into account some important details.

Want to sign abroad officially or arrange a symbolic ceremony?

Register marriage is officially possible not in every country. Some countries establish restrictions or special conditions for registration of non-residents. For example, in Thailand to register marriage can those who are registered at the our Embassy or has permanent residence permit. To conclude a marriage in Seychelles, you need to live on the islands at least 11 days, and on Sri Lanka – at least four nights before the wedding. The French authorities require newlyweds to spend marriage in the country for at least 30 days before registration. In some countries, only a religious form of marriage is recognized ; In Indonesia, you can register only Muslims, Hindus, Catholics, Protestants and Buddhists. Orthodox in this list no. In addition, newlyweds should belong to one religion.

However, there is a large selection of countries where legislation allows you to register relations to citizens of any state. And if you plan simply a symbolic wedding ceremony abroad, the choice of a place for a wedding abroad is not limited.

What documents are needed for official registration?

  • our passports;
  • Certificate of the birth of the bride and groom;
  • passports and their copies;
  • Affidevit (certificate from the registry office for the absence of legal obstacles to marriage);
  • filled questionnaire (when organizing a wedding from the hotel);
  • Certificate of termination of marriage, certificate of death of the spouse (if these events took place);
  • In some countries, it is also necessary to present documents on the change in the name and name under the relevant circumstances, medical certificates on health care (France).

To all documents (except for passports) should be made copies in the state language of the country in which you want to marry. All copies should be notarized in Russia. At the birth certificate (divorce, death of a spouse) should be made apostille, a special sign that put on non-commercial documents of notaries or bodies issued documents. Be sure to specify the list of necessary documents for the wedding abroad in advance and the timing of their provision.

A certificate of marriage concluded in another country does not exchange any evidence of the our sample. After receiving a legalized marriage certificate with a notarized translation, in a passport desk at the place of registration you put a stamp "Registered marriage" into the passport of a citizen of the our Federation. If the name is needed, you need to contact the registry office at the place of registration with a statement about the change of the name, and after receiving a certificate of change of names – change the passport and in the new passport to make marriage registration marks. I do not want to talk about sad, but it is necessary ; Divorce can be decorated only in the country where marriage was concluded.

Specify the deadlines for the legalization of marriage certificate. In different countries, this procedure takes different times. In some countries, a legalization document can be obtained on the next business day after registration of marriage, and somewhere – wait until six months.
