The Government of Seychelles in the last month announced two different categories, each having a country list. People traveling to Seychelles from the countries listed in category two will need isolation or quarantine period in the designated and authorized establishments. On the other hand, people coming from the countries listed in category one, don’t need to spend any isolation period. Now Bahrain falls under category one, and if you’re from Bahrain, then you can easily travel to Seychelles without worrying.

However, it’s equally important to keep in mind that you are still required to have an official PCR test for COVID-19. Moreover, the test must be conducted no more than the last 72 hours and it must also have negative results. It is to stop the virus from spreading.

You can plan your wedding in Seychelles any time you want now, once you have a PCR test for COVID-19 with negative results. If you know about Seychelles, then would already know that it’s a dream place to get married for countless couples.

Why marrying in Seychelles is a good option; for unmarried expectant mothers in UAE

UAE brought new reforms last year regarding unexpected pregnancy laws and many other concerns. However the rules of the land was still unclear.

This however has changed and an official statement is now out. Unmarried women who are pregnant would no longer be sent to jail and can give birth with no fears.

If you have an unexpected pregnancy and are not married in the UAE then continue reading this article till the very end.

Main Points on Unexpected Pregnancy Laws in the UAE

  • Pre-marital sex and cohabitation were decriminalized a few months ago by the newest UAE law.
  • The new laws states that pregnant women can now give birth and the child would be accepted as long as both parents get married or decide to single handedly or jointly raise the child.
  • If a warning is raised against any of the above not being adopted; both parents would be penalized.

Previous unclear law about pregnancy in the UAE

The medical insurance and registration of births are two of the most important areas for women with unexpected pregnancies outside the marriage. When a new mother cannot submit the marriage document to issue a birth notice, hospitals can call on the police to make decisions on birth registration with the Personal Status Court. Two lawyers and three hospital employees shared this information.

The official UAE Government website shared the following information in March:

“The man and the woman must be married legally so that their children can receive legal recognition.”

With regard to health insurance, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) policy rules are as follows:

“The maternity insurance cover is not offered for women who are out of wedlock and women who are not capable of carrying a baby.”

It is crucial to highlight that DHA (the Dubai Health Authority) has no intentions to modify these restrictions.

Why Seychelles is a good option to marry

While must get the benefit of doubt that not all couples would be looking to get married. However many couples; might foresee the upcoming challenges while naming the baby, healthcare, education and may consider marrying as a good option.

Marriage is a union of two people; and if you are pregnant with the baby you are already a family. To make this an incredible experience even before the baby arrives; what better destination that the tropical islands of Seychelles.

Not only would you be blessed with good climate, and clear water but even marrying in Seychelles is rather straightforward than most GCC countries.

Final Words on Latest Update on Unexpected Pregnancy Laws in the UAE

The official Reuters website shared all this information after performing research and analysis on the latest trends and stats.

Only two options are available. The new regulations may be stringent if the government wishes to make it a religious society. On the other hand, you may expect greater leniency in the future if a more liberal society is what people need.

Luckily the government has chosen the latter half to ensure the happiness of majority of expatriates that the GCC countries make up for.

If you pregnant in the UAE and looking to get married in Seychelles; look no further and book a call with our team.

How to get married in Dubai in time of Corona virus? [Updated 03/08/20]

UAE & Dubai weddings are called off due to Covid-19 outbreak

As most of you may have already heard about it, wedding ceremonies are cancelled in Dubai because of the coronavirus. You can read more about it in thenational.ae.

This has a direct impact on a lot of people who were planning to tie the knot in Dubai in March & April 2020. As we can easily imagine, a lot of couples will be affected by it.

Is there a way to get married in Dubai during the corona virus?

Well, as you can imagine, Dubai authorities have completely banned wedding ceremonies previously, in an ongoing effort to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 in the UAE. Later it has been announced that couples can say their “I do” online via the conference call, but they have to submit all the required documents (including the medical screening) prior to the online ceremony. Grand wedding celebrations are prohibited as of today.

The embassies are slowly reopening for the civil weddings at the moment, however they still don’t work at full capacity and it’s going to take some time to register a marriage there.

Not being able to travel or to marry within the country, the UAE residents had to learn their lesson in a tough way. Not everything goes as it’s planned.

What alternatives are there to get legally married in Dubai during the corona outbreak?

But let’s be positive there is still hope!

Due to the current circumstances a lot of people have been looking for alternatives to get married in other countries.

Until mid-march, you could have flown from Dubai to Seychelles or Georgia. Then all the borders were closed for months. But now, as countries start reopening slowly but surely, the wedding solutions are getting closer.

Option A – Get married as soon as Georgia borders reopen

Step 1 – Make sure, you are allowed to travel from Dubai to Georgia

However, we suggest to check the updates regularly.

How to get an entry & exit certificate before flying from Dubai?

You can request an entry and exit certificate in English directly from the police office in the airport. Make sure to get it in English & stamped. This will be the official proof local authorities may ask before you enter Georgia.
