Legal Requirements & Documentation
A Maronite Catholic wedding ceremony will be held by a Lebanese priest in either Arabic, French, English or Greek (decided by the couple).
In order for a religious ceremony to take place in Cyprus the couple must go to their local priest to issue them each a civil status (Ikhraj Kayd) document declaring that they are not married. The couple are also required to pass wedding exams under the guidance of their local priest, when this has been completed then the priest in Lebanon must send all the necessary paperwork to the Archbishopric in Lebanon asking them to provide a document giving permission for the couple to marry in Cyprus (please note that is must be stated that the marriage will take place in Cyprus). When the couple have the permission to marry from the archbishopric in Lebanon, all the relevant paperwork must be sent together with baptism certificates and ids/passports to the Lebanese priest here in Cyprus (we can provide the contact information).
For Catholic Maronite religious ceremony is not necessary to perform a civil marriage ceremony prior to the religious ceremony.
