Wedding in Cyprus

CyprusWedding Rules and Requirements

Under the provisions of the Marriage Law Cap. 279
you must apply personally to the marriage
officer at the Town Hall

For either - a date for the marriage
to take place after the lapse of 15 days
from the date of the application of notice
or until the expiration of three months from the date of
the notice.
or in urgent or time sensitive applications,
a special license for implementation after 3 days


You must have

Documents..... legal identification or travel documents, such as passports.  Also be in possession of evidence that you are free to marry, such as confirmation from the competent authority of their country
(i.e. the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.).

In other words you must have a signed, stamped paper saying that you are not already married, and this document bust be new and fresh, no more than 3 months old in our experience. Sometimes you can get it from your Embassy, if they allow you to sign an affidavit and will stamp it for you, but to be on the safe side, find out from them before you come.

All documents regarding legal divorce certificates in cases of divorces, certificates of widowhood, etc, must be dully certified by a competent authority of their country (i.e. the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or an attorney, or a solicitor, or a notary, etc.) as a true and valid document at the period of the application for civil marriage in Cyprus.

So to recap - make sure you have

Certificate of No impediment of Marriage (each country has a different department that can provide this certificate)

Birth Certificates


Decree Absolute, (if you are divorced)

Death Certificate, in the case of widows or widowers.
