LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR GETTING MARRIED IN TURKEY
Getting married in Turkey is very straightforward although there is paperwork which needs to be completed before the wedding both in your own country and in Turkey
Once the legal requirements have been met you can marry virtually ANYWHERE so long as you have an official registrar in attendance.
These things must be done before you leave the UK
The most important thing of all – because you cannot get married without it – is for the bride and groom to get a Certificate of No Impediment from their local registry office.
This document proves to Turkish officials that you are legally able to marry.
Here are the instructions from the Government Agency dealing with these applications in England and Wales
A Certificate of No Impediment (CNI) is a certificate which confirms there are no objections to your proposed marriage.
The following must be done before submitting your application for this certificate.
You must publicly announce your intended marriage through a notice which must be in your local newspaper for at least one week: that is, seven consecutive days in a daily newspaper or once only in a weekly newspaper.
The application form provides details of the correct and legally acceptable wording of the announcement. Please ensure you use the correct wording when placing your announcement or you risk invalidating the application
You must swear an Affidavit in front of a Commissioner of Oaths. Again, a specimen affidavit is included in the application form. Please reproduce the correct text onto another piece of paper – do not use the specimen provided.
The Affidavit should bear the official stamp of the Commissioner of Oaths
These documents must then be translated into Turkish by the appropriate official agency
So long as the paperwork is completed satisfactorily in the UK we can arrange for the official paperwork can be completed in Turkey within one week of receiving it.Read More »
