Flight information - COVID-19:
In Cyprus, we offer weddings with only one or two overnight stays and witnesses for free.
Please note: At a wedding in Cyprus the surnames can not be changed. On request, the registry office issues a certificate of consent for a name change. This certificate must be submitted within 3 months of your wedding day to the authorities of your home country or to a consulate / embassy of your home country in your country of residence.
The wedding ceremony:
The language of the ceremony is English or Greek and the witnesses are for free. If you do not understand English or Greek, you need an interpreter (price: about 70, - €). Own witnesses may also translate.
Legalization / Apostille:
In most countries, you will need an Apostille-legalized marriage certificate to register your marriage.
Please note: You will receive the two marriage certificates immediately after the ceremony and the Apostille usually at the same day.
Please send in color scanned copies of these documents by e-mail:
1. Passport or ID card for citizens of a Schengen Member State
If you come from a visa-free country: passport; Entry stamp * for Cyprus (* if already available)
a valid Schengen multiple-entry visa if you are from a country whose citizens require a visa to enter Cyprus
