LEGAL REQUIREMENTS

Following your arrival in Cyprus you must visit personally or with your wedding planner assisting, the Wedding Registry Office of Paralimni Municipality, in order to go through the formalities which are necessary prior to your marriage. These formalities are actually relatively easy and straight forward and our staff thoroughly enjoy assisting couples throughout this procedure.

You and your partner should be in position to present the following legal documents:

  • Passports or Identity cards
  • birth certificates (long ones for UK nationals)
  • dated, stamped and signed original documents from the competent authority of their countries of origin for their present  marital status (single, divorced, widow or    widower)

 

Please note that the marital status documents are valid only for 3 months from the issue.

  • original Decree Absolute  in case of divorce
  • death certificate  in case of widowhood
  • name change documents -deed poll if any
  • copies of passports of two adult witnesses (above eighteen years old)
  • if either party of the intended marriage is under 18 years of age, the written consent of the father or if he is dead or incapable of consenting, of the mother or the lawful guardian of such party, must be produced to the Marriage Officer.
  • In case of non European citizens who live permanent in Cyprus, a No Impediment Certificate by the Registrar of Marriages (Civil Registry and Migration Department in Nicosia), is needed.  Its date of issue must not be more than three months.

 

All documents that are not in English or Greek, must be translated into either English or Greek by authorized translators.
