Things to Know

The ins and outs before tying the knot in Cyprus

Legalities

A marriage licence is necessary before any wedding can take place in Cyprus, whether a church or a civil ceremony. All wedding organisers/planners and municipal marriage officers will be pleased to assist you in obtaining this document.

The aim of all involved parties is to provide you with peace of mind; it is highly recommended to arrange all required documents (detailed below), at least 6 weeks prior to your arrival in Cyprus.

Upon your arrival, further arrangements are made to ensure the process is completed.

Legalities and documents required

  • Passports
  • Birth Certificates
  • Declarations from a solicitor stating that you are “free to marry”
  • If applicable:

Original Divorce Certificates,

Original Adoption Certificate,

Original Widow/Widower Certificates.

 

If you have had a change of name, then a change of name deed is also required. Scottish nationals should obtain a Certificate of No Impediment from their local registry office.

For Catholic Church Weddings

  • Birth Certificates
  • Declarations from solicitor stating you are “free to marry”
  • If a previous marriage has been dissolved, an annulment from your parish is required.

 

All other requirements as mentioned above.

Please note that non-British passport holders must contact their relevant embassy/consulate, or any municipal marriage office within the Pafos Region, for further details on marriage legalities in Cyprus.
