Generally No. Again this depends completely on the marriage laws of your home country and possibly also the ship's home country. But according to this (German) article, most countries do not allow this. It even mentions a number of regulations (by the US Navy, the state of New York, and the British merchant navy) that explicitly disallow it. It also ...

My sister did it, so it's possible. The bureaucratic hoops she had to jump through to get the marriage recognised at home were however significant, not because of unwillingness by authorities but mostly because of the amount of paperwork that had to be signed, countersigned, and sent back and forth between the Hague city hall, Las Vegas city hall, and ...

That depends completely on the laws concerning marriage in your home country. I'd say that in most countries it is possible, but there may be varying documentation or other requirements (and restrictions) for the marriage to be legally accepted. Ask whatever authority is beaurocratically responsible for marriages in your country; they should know best. ...

I am sure that the reunification visa is a permanent one, so it wouldn't make sense for the authorities to worried about you staying longer than you should. That wasn't the case with the student visa, so since this is a different visa you shouldn't worry.

You'd have to verify this, but Las Vegas could be an option. However, the question is whether your country of residence accepts this marriage; contacting the US consulate of your home country might be a good idea; they would also be able to tell you what you'd have to do to validate your marriage before you leave the US.

Most cruise ships have chapels for religious services, and for weddings. As to the details, look them up, or confirm them with the cruise line beforehand. In some instances, the ships captains can perform the functions of a justice of the peace. In other case, you need a clergyman/woman. And location of the ship could make a difference, as could the ...

As far as I know, in France (“copie d'acte de mariage” or “extrait d'acte de mariage”) or Germany (“Eheurkunde”), marriage certificates do not mention the previous status of the spouses. Obviously if you were to divorce from this marriage then this divorce would be mentioned in the register as well. You can't just drop in and marry, however. In France, for ...

There are still a handful of situations where being married makes things possible that would otherwise be impossible. (Hospital consent, hotel room sharing, being on the same immigration form, etc.) In the vast majority of these cases, an opposite sex couple can get through by simply stating they are married. Occasionally the "proof" of having ID with the ...

I would telephone the local US consulate in Australia an make an appointment to discuss the situation. Immigration rules are very specific in the US and it is likely since the follow up paperwork was not supplied that your wife does not enjoy the status she would have. Please speak with the officials before you start your journey. My guess is she will ...

I did it, my wife and I live in Israel and got married in New York. All we had to do was get an apostele (stamp) from New York State and register with the ministry of the Interior back in Israel. The only complication was getting her divorce decree translated from Hebrew to English and notarized. Thankfully we found a notary in NY who read Hebrew and could ...

There is no international standard for this as there is for passports, probably because marriage customs and procedures are just too diverse. As Kate said, people will usually take your word for it for most everyday purposes such as travellign (getting a visa for Saudi Arabia may be the exception). Actual proof of marriage is usually only required for ...

Have you considered Indonesia? Bali is a popular tourist destination for Australasians and is also has a reputation for couples looking to have a smaller, less expensive wedding. I'm not sure whether that means that Indonesia would be considered a common place for elopement, but given your background comment, it would appear that you are more interested in ...

I am not so sure I understand the question. According to US Embassy Page it is possible to get married in Germany What documents do I need to get married in Germany? This depends on what the registrar's office ("Standesamt") requires and may vary from case to case. The Standesamt therefore requires that you make an appointment and discuss with ...

The answer is: absolutely! There are multiple destinations that can do this while you travel. The possibility of this depends on the laws of the country and province(state) that you will want do this in. For example in most states in the United States is usually performed by an official like a judge and requires some sort of documentation, registration, ...
