Yes, but it depends on 2 things : Your destination country law, and your home country law. Here is an example : Indonesian couples wants to get married in Singapore. The following rules apply : They have to apply their notice of Marriage at Registry Of Marriage Singapore At least one of them has to be physically present within Singapore for a ...

I believe you should be able to form a civil partnership or marriage in the UK as foreigners, regardless of it being same-sex or not. From 29 March 2014, same sex couples can get married in England and Wales. You can only get a civil partnership as a same sex couple. There're some differences being made between marriage and civil partnership, but as ...

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 ...

Here are some of the options I could find out, there might be more: Argentina actually made a point of allowing foreigners to marry specifically when they are gay. Denmark does not seem to have any issues with foreigners getting married there. In Spain however you will have to wait some time for the approval, and better be in Madrid.

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. ...

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.

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.

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 ...

Canada allows same sex marriage and I know an Irish resident who came here to be married a few years ago. He stayed less than a week and the whole process was simple and pleasant for them both. Over a year ago, the government announced they would tweak our law specifically to ensure such marriages were recognized properly: The federal government is ...

France just passed a law to allow two people of the same sex to marry but it seems difficult to come to France just for that. Generally speaking, in France, you can't choose where you marry, even as a French national living in the country. At least one of the future partners should either have his or her usual residence (domicile) in the town (commune) or ...

There is nothing to prevent non-residents to marry in Iowa. You just have to follow the three day waiting period after applying. I'm sure several other US states allow non-residents to marry as well. The question remains if your home country/state acknowledges the marriage. Iowa's gay-marriage law sparks tourism

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 ...

In California, the two of you can show up in person at a county clerk office, apply for and receive a marriage license, and in many counties, be married by the clerk right there and then. You can also be married by an officiant such as a minister if you prefer. San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego are three popular cities in which to get married, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 can only answer about marriage in Germany. One condition is that one of the two is a resident of the area of the Standesamt (registration office) where the marriage is conducted, so you would have to get married where she lives in Germany (a man living at town A and a woman living in town B could choose to get married in A or B, but not elsewhere). The ...

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, ...
