Who needs a wedding certificate in GCC?


1. Get a wedding certificate to get a spouse visa for your partner

Whenever you live together as a couple in any of the GCC countries (UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, KSA) by law you used to need to be married. Nowadays it’s not a requirement anymore but to be able to provide a spouse residence visa for your partner you still need to be officially married.

2. Get a marriage license to have a baby

Another option to be married is for couples that are planning to have a baby. Once again it is forbidden by law to give birth without being married.

If you want to live with your partner, if you want to have a child, you will be requested to get a wedding certificate.

Why getting your marriage license in Seychelles?

Seychelles is a beautiful country. And what is more important, getting a wedding certificate is really easy there.
