Necessary paperwork and documentation: the absolute must-have in order to be able to get married
All non-Cypriots need to provide the following certificates in order to get married in Cyprus. If any of them is missing, then there is no way to get married, so please be careful with these:
Recent Certificate of marital status from an official Government Authority, like Town Hall, Ministry of Interior, Registry Office, Embassy, etc.
In case one of the spouses was married before, then an official Divorce Certificate is required
In case one of the spouses widowed, then a Death Certificate of the deceased spouse is required
Valid original Passport or European ID Card. The passport must be valid for at least six months from the date of the wedding
In case one of the spouses is less than 18 years old, evidence that parents agree to the marriage is required
All the above documents, to be valid and recognized, must be original and legalized with an apostile Stamp. This applies for couples that come from countries that are a member of the Hague Convention. For other countries, not members of the Hague Convention, the documents must be legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Cyprus Embassy or Consulate in the country. All documents must be officially translated into the English language and issued a maximum of six months before the date of application.
Every single wedding, deserves a personal touch!
