结婚在希腊-游客

温暖的天气,粉刷别墅和钴海都作出了完美的背景在一个希腊小岛婚礼。

浪漫和完美的天气之外,希望结婚的希腊岛屿或希腊的任何地方应该知道,有一个合法仪式将在客人抵达之前涉及的重要文件,加注和翻译的集合(在某些情况下)的游客。

对于导航合法性援助,是有帮助的采用合法的婚礼策划师谁做跑腿为你,一旦你转发了必要的文件。 你将支付超过75-100欧元通常会导致自己做,但至少你的前,后,婚礼的时间不会被官僚被宠坏。

*文章最后更新2014年2月2日

避免希腊官僚

两种方法来避免做婚礼前的官僚外币和/或语言。

一)文件的结婚证,签署文件和结婚回家,然后让“真实”或象征性的婚礼在希腊 - 这种方法提供了一定的好处,它不涉及语言,法律,加注,翻译或花费8天在希腊,同时给你的自由和灵活性来规划您的行程,并参观岛屿没有一个外国的限制。

b)购买没有限制回老家结婚证(即,它不说“只有良好的在纽约的状态”),申请一个旁注,它翻译在希腊领事馆/大使馆,并把它给你的婚礼策划师或者牧师继续进行,无需提交其他文件。 这也是周围的八天要求的方式。

*请注意,有些岛屿现在从结婚就一定希腊岛屿酒吧的游客,也有规定:禁止在考古遗址婚礼的法律。 例如,你不能结婚的雅典卫城。

从婚礼策划建议

1,预留的日期提前至少三(3)个月,如果五月至十月
2,与加注转发您的文件到婚礼策划婚礼日期至少一(1)个月之前,如果你希望拿结婚证,并有合法仪式在希腊
3,在抵达前至少30天完成您的喜好,以确保您的需求得到满足或替代方案被发现,提前避免意外

其他建议

  • 期间从六月下旬到九月初是出了名的炎热,潮湿而忙碌; 如果人群和热是一个梦想中的婚礼不良因素的影响,最好是选择在四月,五月和十月的日期。
  • 花时间去研究不同的婚礼策划:注重细节在其网站上有时是他们的能力的一种体现,提供注重细节为你的婚礼
  • 每一种类型的仪式完成在希腊 - 大和小,民间仪式,许多教派,象征性的仪式,誓言和同性恋婚礼的更新,有或无的希腊传统的宗教仪式 - 但不是所有的人都被所有的婚礼策划和提供同性婚姻是不合法的希腊。 一定要打听这个那个未明确列出的任何细节。 不要假设任何事情。
  • 问问看摄影师的组合,谁是可能的地方,并有摄影风格,结婚蛋糕或鲜花来传达你的愿望具体的例子。

你可能不需要一个婚礼策划师如果你熟悉你选择的位置,特别是如果你已经受信任的联系人或家人来帮助你。 旅行社和酒店业主有时有良好的接触,可以协助安排,如有必要,

另外请注意,婚礼蛋糕在希腊通常包括蛋糕一个切口底层,蛋羹/慕斯和奶油的顶部中间层和/或两侧。 覆盆子灌装,软糖,层次及在你的家园钉等元素都是不常用在这里使用。 例如,一个美国或英国式的翻糖婚礼蛋糕被认为是一种奢侈品和相应的价格。 我建议安排进行协商/品酒会和检讨投资组合,以找到适合你和你的价格范围之一,就像你会背回家,如果你有时间和机会。

具有合法仪式

如果有在希腊的法律仪式对你很重要,这些都是世界上大多数欧盟和非欧盟国家公民的正常需求。 你的婚礼策划师可以告知具体到您所在的国家或额外要求较小您。

我已经提供了这个信息,纯粹作为参考,以协助您决定来处理在希腊还是在家里合法性。 *如果您至少有一个是任何国籍的居民希腊,下列不适用于你,你必须看到,而不是“ 结婚在希腊-居民 。“

您必须年满18岁,将需要:

每本护照的1。复印件一份

2,一个复印件各证人的护照,如果提供两个你自己的

3,印刷出生证明每名申请人,在过去的五(5)年认证的一个旁注(请参见下面的加注详细情况)

在过去的五(5)年的认证,每个文档中的一个旁注4,离婚判决书副本(如有的话)

5,以前的配偶的死亡证明(如果有的话),在过去的五(5)年的认证,每个文档中的一个旁注副本

法院命令名称变更6。核证副本(如适用)

7,通过认证的宣誓书,说明你是单身,自由不受阻碍结婚,结婚日期后三(3)个月内签署

对于美国人:一)公民可以到美国大使馆在雅典位于美国公民服务9:00-14:00之间公证单位,无需预约,凭护照,$ 50现金或等值的欧元对每个宣誓书,其中在该窗口会给出一边和英语对其他已完成的希腊。 如果你不明白或写希腊,使馆官员可以帮助你。 该宣誓书将审查和批准,而你等待; 或者b)确保从你的国家登记处“单一”身份书及公证认证的公开声明中,你可以自由地结婚。 (您必须洽询各地州注册处处长的指导,我还没有提供的例子,因为他们是在不同的美国各州)。

对于澳大利亚人:证书非障碍从外交和贸易部每个申请人的,你的婚礼日起三(3)个月内发出。

对于英国人:非障碍形式的婚礼日期后三(3)个月内证明每名申请人。

加拿大人:公开声明的公证证明,你是自由结婚。

南非:婚姻状况证明。

8,你的喜好为未来的孩子是否会采取一个名字或其他或两者兼而有之。 法律背家庭将优先于你的叙述性偏好,但你仍然会期待回答。

9。两个证人谁是希腊公民和拥有未过期的护照/ ID的证明有关。

10,必须留在仪式在希腊登记处(Lixiarxeio)来注册你的婚姻后,至少一(1)个工作日。 这意味着如果你已婚周五,你不能离开上周六另一个岛上,必须保持至少到星期一晚上。 如果周一恰好是希腊的假期,那么你有义务留到周二晚上。

据指出其他来源,你必须在希腊婚礼日期前至少八(8)天,但是这通常是需要保护和发行希腊结婚证的时间。 如果你有自己的结婚证或聘请了婚礼策划师,以确保希腊结婚证提前,八(8)天并不总是必要的。

得到一个旁注

一个旁注是适用于经过认证的文档来表示根据1961年海牙公约废除合法化的外国公文认证要求的条款及其法律真实性供国际使用的密封件。

欲了解更多详细信息,请参阅“ 如何得到一个旁注 。“

翻译

翻译是需要出生证明,离婚判决书和死亡证明,但没有护照,和你的婚礼策划师可能会或可能不提供此作为其服务的一部分。 各民族都有两种选择,根据希腊法律。

欲了解更多具体信息,请参阅“ 的官方文件翻译成希腊文 。“

位置

婚礼发生在一所教堂,市政厅,市长办公室或选择预先核准的位置,而不是一个登记的办公室,考古遗址或外国使馆/领事馆。

根据书面正统基督教的宗教法律,只有两个人同样的信念被允许结婚的东正教教堂,并且必须提供的洗礼证书作证明或必须注明意图转换,并采取精神导师。 这是直接的方式。

然而,祭司希腊各地使人们不同信仰的,并且从宽处理在美国和其他国家的例外也被证实。 这在技术上违反了宗教法,但它是为了适应时代的变化。

最后的注意事项

*所有文件的正本及加注将被永久存档于希腊注册处,因此不退还给您。 请求您的结婚证书核证的副本,如果你不具备足够的副本,您的需要回家和个人文件。

*选择合适的位置,并聘请婚礼策划师是一个独特的和个人的选择,因此我无法提出建议。

更何况涉及注册一个美国人的婚姻希腊(我们想要做的时候了,所以我可以通过我的丈夫得到健康保险),然后在需要的希腊婚礼是收集一切之上的头痛。 唉。 我很高兴,噩梦结束了。

回复:

梅尔 - 我们正在做相反的你。 我们将在这里结婚,登记结婚,在美国,只是因为我们认为它可能是这样的痛苦做反向。 从您的意见,看来我们做出了正确的选择。

我听说大多是不好的事情这个问题。 如果我结婚了,我怀疑,它会不会在希腊!(虽然这将是可爱的)

回复:

Yiannos - 对于游客来说,这不是那么糟糕。 对于居民,这是一个有点痛苦,但经过10多年的官僚处理我自己的,我想我是麻木了无论是好还是坏。 我就去做。

你说你需要留一天结婚以后,​​但你必须在该国一个星期左右被允许结婚,在希腊过吗?

回复:

这是一个很大的问题。

据官方统计,有人告诉我,你确实需要你的婚礼,这是它需要确保结婚证(因为它说在后)时间日期前到这里来1周。 不过,如果你有自己或你的婚礼策划师的文件为它提前抵达或作出安排,否则,这未必是绝对必要的。 我推荐的询问,因为每个婚礼策划师,直辖市都有自己的规则和服务。

感谢您的评论!

Fotini酒店写道@ 2007年7月10日在18:21

我在这个过程中间,这是不是一件好玩的事情。 我有一个问题想问你,我是来自美国,嫁给一个天主教的人,在希腊,在希腊东正教教堂。 我们被要求获得公证“信的信仰”,我们将提高我们的孩子正统......从刨床,她说只是为了问一个当地公证的音符,但我无法想象在纽约州公证员将对本在手...你知道WHER找到这个样本?

回复:

嗨Fotini酒店,对不起它不会顺利,但至少你不是希腊的居民,因为这个过程是非常非常困难。

要结婚的希腊东正教教堂,两个人必须是希腊东正教或他/她必须同意转换。 即同意转换的人都分配了一个精神导师,需要结婚以后完成一系列的读数。

你说的没错,规划是错误的。 公证绝对不会有这样的。 这是你需要从希腊东正教教堂,教区大主教管区或得到一个宗教的文档。 如果我没有记错的话,你和你的丈夫需要去一个牧师和/或宗教顾问。 他们应该能够告诉我如何有资格和本函发出。

我听说过的人解决这个越来越有贿赂或连接,但这不是正确的方式去下面的宗教法律。

所有最优秀的 :)

马特写道@ 2008年3月3日在22:29

事实上,罗马天主教可以嫁给别人的希腊东正教信仰希腊东正教教堂。 婚姻由罗马天主教会以及双方的希腊东正教教堂的认可。 但是,如果说夫妇是在一个罗马天主教教堂结婚,希腊东正教教会不会承认这门婚事。 我是天主教徒,我的未婚夫是希腊东正教,我们得到这个月结婚的东正教教堂在雅典。 我们已经遇到了牧师,以及咨询了耶稣会神学家朋友谁也专门在天主教东正教的关系。

回复:

这是很好的了解它为你工作。 感谢您分享您的经验。

请注意,我写的基于直资料篇。 我的消息来源是两位主教在希腊东正教大主教管区及其登记处; 我知道有数十人谁做的直路,要么不能结婚在教堂和/或有转换。 牧师是众所周知的弥补自己的规则,正如我已经说过很多次,希腊是一个“结果可能会有所不同'的国家,例外的是规则。 如果人们避开直线的方式和它的作品对他们来说,这是伟大的。

热烈祝贺!

你的网站是非常有帮助的,我一直在读它了很多,但我一直在努力的人来回答我这个问题很难......我已经与希腊2年,我们要结婚了,但不幸的是希腊不会reconize我们的婚姻,我们想知道,如果我们结婚,在德国,回来这里在希腊生活,我将能够通过婚姻有一个欧盟公民身份?
谢谢您的时间〜

回复:

1)你不能再结婚,如果你已经结婚了无论在哪里你试图这样做,除非你撒谎是'唯一'(你不是),这是伪证。 你会被抓住。
2)如果希腊将无法识别你的婚姻现在,他们显然有充分的理由不这样做。 因此,试图再次做到这一点是毫无意义的。
3)你可以找到你的答案,公民很容易做一个搜索,因为它已经在该网站的3篇文章。 另外多余的问题将被删除。

你好 - 我是一个澳大利亚人在希腊和爱你的网站 - 但同时你写的很多事情,当然这是晶圆厂 - 我注意到,有一件事是失踪 - 离婚的一个希腊。 我结婚5年了 - 他当时就想离婚,现在我的两个儿子(6岁)和我都停留在希腊和也去不了,因为他是拒绝签署我儿子的澳洲护照。 有很多女人喜欢我(前拍)在类似的位置 - 没有家人在这里 - 但受到留在希腊,为了我们的孩子,而在同一时间试图争取自己的权益。 只是虽然我会让你知道。 谢谢pdsmummy。

回复:

帕金森病的妈妈 - 这是真的。 有关于离婚的只有少数的意见,因为我没有任何关于这个问题的第一手资料; 我想目前有两种官方文档和经验更平衡的文章。

我是谁离婚了一位朋友,它很顺利,因为她的前夫是错了,没有什么可质疑 - 他们也是希腊和居住在希腊。 我也知道,离婚混合美式希腊夫妇,她的过错,这样也进展顺利; 他留在了这里纯粹是为了自己的女儿(他们共享监护权),尽管他恨这里。 我应该从至少3人在离婚希腊(最好是混合的夫妇如自己与你所描述的问题)收集信息和经验,我更愿意研究和展示这些信息。

我很遗憾听到你的情况。 这是一个耻辱,我完全理解,当你谈论争取自己的权利。

这是这样一个有用的网站! 我喜欢它!

早在2005年,我当时的未婚夫,我已经考虑结婚的希腊。 我们决定在希腊一个目的地婚礼将过于高昂的成本对我们来说,所以我们选择了一个相当小的婚礼在科罗拉多州。 现在,我们正在期待一个婴儿在九月和我什至不能开始了解这部分的希腊文化(和我是希腊语):人要我洗我的宝贝。 我的表弟叫(是的,她告诉我的),她会施洗我的宝贝,如果它最终被一个女孩(是的,我有一个女婴)。 她不是唯一的一个。 我有随机希腊的人,我几乎不知道告诉我,他们想洗宝宝。 我想荣誉选择教父母被预留给孩子的父母! 总之......让我们说我呢,其实,决定掏出我的毕生积蓄购买机票,到希腊,你有什么我需要做的,在希腊洗礼的任何信息? THANK YOU!

回复:

五 - 我没有对GR洗礼的任何信息在这个时候。 我的大多数朋友做了很久以前,不记得任何细节,我的未婚夫是不是练正统基督徒和所有他的堂兄弟都是比他年轻无子女。 我敢肯定有人在那里写了一篇文章。 如果你去的类别有在babycenter.com一些伟大的女人,“希腊。”毫无疑问,很多人就知道了。

在希腊结婚可以是一点点无聊。 到目前为止,我们已经有2任命在当地municpaitly办事处,取消了! 我们呼吁,确认的日期,被告知要出现在一个特定的时间,但两次,前几天的服务是要发生,他们呼吁并注销。 市长“忙”。 坦率地说,我认为他们正在寻找一个贿赂。 我们已经预订多一个约会,我告诉他们那不如不被取消。 我不能相信的时候他们可以决定他们太忙嫁给你? 令人难以置信。

回复:

L - 你好! 虽然我敢肯定,你不开心的不便,我很高兴你分享了我和读者,因为它的东西我都没有听说过。 大多数人我知道是谁了民间仪式在希腊必须在那里提前5分钟到约会,这是进出在一瞬间。

发生了什么事你是特别不好的,如果你有亲戚从外地来的朋友们参加在希腊你的婚礼!

我的男朋友是希腊东正教谁住在希腊,现在,我受洗的卫理公会在美国,我住在波多黎各(加勒比海)现在。 我们开始做我们上周的研究,仍然有很多疑点,我们可以结婚在希腊 - 希腊东正教教堂,如果有任何要求,我们需要做的,为了能够做到这一点? 我们可以得到合法结婚的美国,然后通过希腊东正教宗教宗教婚礼在希腊? 将希腊的宗教承认我们的合法婚姻,他们会允许我作为一个卫理公会受洗基督徒结婚的希腊东正教教会?
感谢您的任何信息,你可以给。

回复:

你好,谢谢你的提问。 严格的正统基督教的规则说一个正统的基督徒只能娶另一个。 不过,教区已放宽这些规则,并在希腊的规则有时可以在合适的价格(贿赂)完全忽略。 为了确保你能嫁给一个民间仪式在美国,但我的建议对希腊的宗教仪式是直接与希腊男友的牧师或宗教顾问咨询,因为我不知道卫正统派之间的规则,它们是很熟悉这些事务。

嗨! 任何人都可以回答我的问题 - 我在哪里可以站在法律,如果我结婚了在希腊,但从来没有“完成”它家在英国?

我得到了在科孚岛去年九月结婚。 我们俩都是英国公民。 我们做了所有的文书工作/翻译/旁注但是我们的仪式发生在星期五,我们飞回家星期天。 我们意识到,我们应该以返回到市政厅和收集的文书工作停留直到周一....但我们没有。 我现在在这个“半婚”无人过问。

显然,我们需要做的就是让一个律师给委托书参加我们的婚礼策划师,收集的文件。 或者我想前往科孚自己做...........但说实话它是这样一个palava规划,我们似乎无法找到能量理清这最后一​​件事了婚礼。 我们可能只是离开它,因为它是在科孚岛和结婚在英国? 至于英国方面,我们都还是单身我猜....?

回复:

索菲嗨,感谢您的提问。 因为你从来没有提起结婚证,你是不是正式注册为结婚在希腊或任何地方。 因此,你可以把它'是',并在英国再结婚。 这是良心的更多的是问题,而不是合法性,当你签署的证明到你的单身论文。

你提到的palava是我经常建议非希腊夫妇做了官方仪式在一个人的家园,即使它只是一个民间的原因之一; 然后与乐趣,浪漫,风景如画的希腊式前进。 这就是说,有很多婚礼策划谁这样做的权利,它是找到合适的人,以避免半结婚无人过问的事。

朱利安写道@ 2009年5月29日16:55

您好,
我得到了去年在希腊结婚。 我baptisted一个天主教和我的妻子是一个希腊东正教。 我是一个天主教徒,这一事实是没有问题的,但我不得不签署文书工作,指出我会洗礼,提高我在希腊东正教教堂的孩子。 如果我不签署这些东西,教​​皇就不会举行了婚礼。 至于你说吉,有明显的大量自由裁量权的存在; 它是牧师的电话。 就像支付给祭司仪式。 正式你给你想要的东西。 但事实上,牧师固定的价格,如果你想结婚的好地方它可能是相当高的。 在我看来,这是腐败现象在希腊教会...玩的只是另一个反正例子。

另一件事我想补充的讨论:首先,我们认为我们会得到一个民间婚礼,参加一个聚会后与家人的朋友。 与民间婚礼的事情是,他们通常发生在最不方便的时候。 当我的妻子和我正在考虑它,雅典市议会庆祝只在晚上七时至晚上十一时星期三婚礼,会有像10婚礼在连续的一段时间。 此外,他们不能保证这会发生在每周的那一天:也许他们会在以后改变它,比方说,星期一的早晨。 换句话说:没有可能性计划什么。 我认为这是一个耻辱:有些人可能希望有一个民间婚礼和派对后与所有家人和朋友。 虽然自1981/82(不知道了确切的日期)民事婚礼一直法律,它仍然被认为是一个单纯的行政的事。 这是不公平的,落后的。

谢谢你给的机会讨论这个问题。 我爱博客。

最好,
朱利安,伦敦

回复:

朱利安你好,感谢你抽出来写出你的故事,分享你的经验的时间。 它总是很高兴,当人们给予回复和/或有助于网站。

这是真的你说的对希腊一些城市重新安排民间仪式; 夏天是更棘手时(讽刺)希腊人离开度假和游客来到这里结婚。 然而,一些日期和时间是稳定的,使人们能够组织并据此安排自己的生活 - 但是这是对希腊的东西,“结果可能会有所不同。”因为民间仪式只持续了几分钟,市政府/市长办公室空间是如此小的,我从来没有建议任何人服用超过9直系家庭/朋友,他们和一名摄影师。 邀请每个人都应该为真正的政党保留。 :)

谢谢您的回答吉! 我很担心在英格兰再次结婚,虽然在同一个男人犯重婚或一些这样的罪!

PS - 评朱利安的职位。 我们也有不方便的仪式时间。 他们说,这必须发生在下午1点在最新的。 这意味着我们不得不饲料和水我们的75位客人提供午餐和晚餐,整个事情比我们计划的公平有点贵..............但我们只是高兴仪式实际发生,因为我们的婚礼策划师说,每个人都在市长的办公室在罢工和她的丈夫拉弦,我们...这意味着什么!

回复:

在这个时候,这是事实,你可以结婚,几乎在任何地方,如果你有从市长的许可。 考古遗址是关闭的原因很明显的限制,以及东正教教堂应预留只有那些谁遵守宗教法律(虽然我见过的人解决这个问题)。 有在Perithia的别墅没有问题。 谢谢你的提问和参观。

我应该继续追求与游客为了有一个合法婚姻希腊的上述建议? 我们有一个日期和一个教堂和牧师同意我们结婚,如果我同意同意将我们的孩子被上升作为希腊东正教的。 (我不是希腊东正教,但受洗的基督徒,她是希腊东正教)。

再次感谢,您有任何意见将是巨大的。

正如我所说的,如果你们中间有一个是“希腊的居民。”是希腊要么你的居民(又名,住在这里至少6个月为一年)? 我并没有说公民或宗教或签证身份什么。 对我来说,这听起来像你俩都是美国居民,所以你按照上面的游客所提供的意见。

嗨特雷西,

正如你可能知道,从你的研究,斯皮纳龙是一个无人居住的小岛要塞和考古遗址。 因此,是否可以在拱结婚将取决于地方当局的许可。 这不是我的专业领域。 我建议联络伊丽莎白http://weddingsincrete.co.uk因为她是一个英国公民,克里特岛的长期居民谁讲希腊和婚礼策划有十年的经验。 所有最好的。

回复:

在我的评论为“Tracy的上面,我只叫她伊丽莎白发现,如果在斯皮纳龙结婚是可能的,因为我不知道答案。

选择婚礼策划师是一个非常个人的决定,这就是为什么我不认可或提出建议,并有在这个网站没有付费广告或链接。 我们可以用两个希腊相同的婚礼策划师,我可以爱他们,你可以恨他们。 所以最好去采访了几个,然后选择之一。

Pat wrote @ October 30th, 2010 at 05:03

Hi, I love your site and have learned so much. I'm hoping you can help me confirm what paperwork is required by 2 canadians wanting to get married in Crete. If we had a city hall wedding in Canada …what do we need to take with us to Greece to get married in church?

谢谢

回复:

Hi Pat,

There was a small delay in answering because I needed to do some research and consult an expert.

You cannot legally get married again in Greece. 为什么呢? To qualify for a marriage license in Greece, you must get a certificate of non-impediment that verifies you are not married, and you were already married in Canada.

However, if at least one of you is Orthodox and you wish to have a ceremony in an Orthodox church, each of you must provide a paper from the Orthodox church (or other denomination) in Canada certifying that you have not been married in a church before, plus a certified copy of your civil marriage certificate translated to Greek (see “ Official translations to Greek ” if you need help). This would make you eligible for an official Orthodox church ceremony in Greece.

If neither of you is Orthodox, then an official Orthodox church ceremony would only be possible if one of you agrees to convert. (It's true that people find their way around rules with connections, bribes or negotiating with the priest, but I don't advocate this.) A Protestant blessing is possible without papers.

Thank you for your question. It helped me learn something new.

Note: Some information in this comment was provided by Elizabeth, whom I consulted because she has lived and worked on Crete for 25 years and arranges weddings for a living. http://weddingsincrete.co.uk/

Olga wrote @ November 6th, 2010 at 11:57

您好,

As always your website is extremely helpful. I am in a similar position as Pat. I am an Greek Aussie (I lived in Greece for a year and have my Greek citizenship). My fiance and I are now living in Australia, and he has a partner-to-be visa. We need to get married legally by May. Hence we are contemplating to have a civil ceremony in Oz. However we both have family in Greece and would love to have our Greek Orthodox Wedding in Greece.

I read on a Greek wedding site that “Αν σκοπεύετε να τελέσετε και πολιτικό και θρησκευτικό γάμο, πρέπει να το δηλώσετε μέσα σε 40 ημέρες από την τέλεση του κάθε μυστηρίου στο Ληξιαρχείο της περιοχής σας.”… would that only apply to those Greek residents living locally?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks… and all the best!

回复:

Hi Olga, I remember the “ Greek citizenship via ancestry ” article helped you.

The 40 days applies to all couples who legally get married in Greece, not just people who live in Greece, which is why tip #9 above advises people they must stay at least one working day past the date of their wedding to register their marriage. This wouldn't apply to you because you'll be legally married in Australia. So in your case:
a) To have an official Orthodox church ceremony in Greece: Same documents I told Pat.
b) You can register your Australian marriage with the Greek consulate/embassy nearest you, so it will be recorded in your future husband's oikogeneiaki merida in Greece.

所有最好的。

Hi, your website is of great help, thanks.
One question i have is that I'm looking at getting married on th beach in Corfu or if you could recommend an other Greek Island. I'm Methodist and my wife to be is Roman Catholic, Is this possible?

回复:

Hi Davin,

Being married on the beach is permitted in a Methodist or Roman Catholic ceremony, so all you need to do is find someone who can perform the service.

I have no first-hand experience with this, so I cannot recommend or endorse anyone specific. But I'm sure you'll be able to find someone by searching and screening your options. All the best for happy life together!

This is urgent because I am leaving in 10 days for greece, with 75 days left to stay there, once I arrive Feb, 17, 2011. (was there for 2 weeks 4 months ago)

I am an American citizen, living in Minnesota, moving to Greece to marry a Greek citizen there.

At the Town Hall of my fiance's municipality he was told that the law is that I should bring a Marriage License from the States. They told him that both he and I would have to present our personal Marriage Licenses, and his they can issue there.

When I asked at my state Marriage License Office, for a Marriage License, they said they cannot, unless both the groom and bride are present and are married in MN.

Or, they have also suggested bringing a 'Certificate of Non- Impediment', which I am also unable to obtain. The only thing my state can provide is a 'Certificate of Record Not Found', which is a document provided by the office of vital records after a search of that county to see if there is record for marriage in that county alone. MN does not have a central record of marriages in the state. I have obtained that already from Scott County.

My problem is that this does not seem to satisfy their requirements, and my fiancee has been to the town hall twice now in Athens explaining that I am unable to obtain the documents they require, and they insist they need these.

I have contacted the Greek Consulate here, the American Embassy in Athens, the MN marriage license office, the office of vital records in MN, the secretary of state office in MN, and the law library here in MN as well. Nobody seems to be able to get me the records or documents required by Greece, or assure me that the one document I can get ('No record found of a marriage' that only searches one county) will be sufficient.

I know that the American Embassy in Greece states that they can issue a 'Certificate of no Impediment', but I am worried that my one document (Certificate of Record Not Found- that really only searches one county) will not be sufficient for them.

I would appreciate any information you might have that could help.
thank you,
nikki

Without hearing the conversation between your fiance and the municipality, I cannot determine whether he asked the wrong questions or asked the right questions and got the wrong answers. Not a criticism, I just don't understand why he's being misled.

First, as I say in the article above, the only case a marriage license is issued outside Greece but used in Greece is when the two people getting married are not residents of Greece. As your fiance is now living in Greece and you will also (soon) be living in Greece, a marriage license issued in the USA is pointless.

Second, you get a Certificate of Non-Impediment at the US Embassy in Athens or the US Consulate in Thessaloniki. For hours of operation and cost, see #4 of “ Marriage in Greece .” If you contacted the American Embassy in Athens, I'm shocked they didn't tell you this since they're very competent and handle cases like yours every day.

Third, you need to get a marriage license here in Greece, same as your fiance.

你没有提供足够的信息让我来帮助你。 However, commentator 'Olga' is Australian-Greek and asked the same question, as did 'Pat' above her.

Assuming you and your husband are Greek Orthodox, read the answers I gave and follow the same advice for having a church ceremony.

Note to all: Please do a key word search using your browser or skim answers before asking your question, or I will close the option to post future comments.

You didn't provide enough information for me to help you. I recommend contacting Elizabeth at http://weddingsincrete.co.uk . She has more than a decade of experience as a wedding planner on Crete and can answer your questions.

Dear Kat,
Thank you for the website and all the information. It helps me greatly on regular basis!

I need advice with regards to getting married in Greece to a Greek resident (citizen). I have dual citizenship (Greek/Russian), and am currently living in Greece. My fiancée is a Russian citizen, living in Greece with a Residence Certificate (Βεβαίωση), which she obtained as a student after we moved to Greece two years ago.

We are planning on registering our marriage in Greece (civil ceremony only – no church), and are currently trying to figure out what documents are required, and which procedures we need to follow. The information I was able to gather from different sources so far is “sketchy”, outdated, and even contradictory at times.

My fiancée has completed her degree in June, and went to Russia in August to renew her passport and gather the documents required for a marriage in Greece. Now come the questions.

1) Before returning to Greece she will inquire at the Greek embassy whether her Residence Certificate is still valid for entry. If it is (considering that after we get married she will be applying for a residence permit), is it better to enter the country with it, or to enter with a new Schengen Visa? If Visa is the way to go, would a simple tourist visa be appropriate?

2) In order to get married here, are there any documents she needs to prepare before coming to Greece (excluding translated birth certificate with an apostille, and a certificate from Russia proving that she is not married)?

3) Once my fiancée enters the country, what do we need to do in terms of procedures?

4) I have read somewhere that an announcement in a newspaper is required to be made a month prior to the marriage registration, and a copy of the newspaper needs to be presented. Is this valid information? Any other “unusual” requirements we should be aware of?

5) Would it be possible for my wife-to-be to take my surname?

6) After the civil ceremony itself, what are the procedures?

I am sorry for the amount of questions and some incoherency. I appreciate how busy you are and that this is an unpaid free-time project, but I am desperate for good advice and other sources have not been useful. I have tried going to my dimos for the information, but got no help there (which should not have come as a surprise), as one dimos rep told me that marrying a Russian is impossible for a Greek citizen and would not be recognized by the state, the other, that my fiancée needs to take Greek lessons and pass a state language exam before marrying me (a Greek), and the third rep told me that I should go to Russia to get married and then legalize it in Greece (the only legally plausible solution offered, although not appropriate to our particular situation). My Greek is mediocre at best (work in a British company and very frequent travel make it hard to learn at a quicker pace), so the official sites are not very useful either :(

Please advise me at your best convenience. 预先感谢您。

PS Is it at all possible to gain access to “Getting married in Greece — for residents”? I am sure I can find many answers there, and would not steal any of your time in the process. I understand if it is not an option.

I have a question if you can answer please.
I am an American Citizen which got married to a Greek Citizen in the mid 80′s. Our marriage took place in the States in a Luthern Church. We then came to Greece and registered our marriage in AThens, although they registered the marriage as a Political Marriage not a religious marriage. My question is: Is this a legal marriage? I really appreciate your help . you can email me the answer if that is possible. Thank you, Sue

回复:

Your marriage is legal as long as the original marriage in the USA is legal. It is still legal as long as you didn't divorce somewhere in the world.

Registering your marriage in Greece does not invalidate or give more legality to an existing marriage. All it does is establish a record in a Greek citizen's oikogeneiaki merida and tell Greek authorities that you were married somewhere. It's not recorded as a 'religious' marriage because it was not Greek Orthodox. It has nothing to do with legality.

I do not offer email consultation for reasons given in “ Comments, Questions and Contacting Me .”

你好。

My daughter wants to have a civil wedding in Crete. They are both US citizens only. I live in Thessaloniki. My mayor there told me that all they needed was a marriage license from their state of residence. My daughter contacted the Greek embassy in LA and was told she needed birth certs, single status, apostiles, translations, certificatied by Greek Emb here-no marriage license from here needed. No mention of 8 day wait. I called the embassy and was told each dimos does their own. Here I am reading other options. My daughter wants to get married on a beach in Crete. She does not want to register it in the US In this case, do you know what is necessary?

回复:

I know very well what's needed, but I can't advise you/her for three reasons:

a) You didn't provide enough information. Namely, what is the current marital status of your daughter and why she doesn't want to register the marriage in the US
b) The information you did provide is conflicting, which may be the reason you're getting varied information. Namely, civil weddings are performed in a mayor's office or city hall, but then you say your daughter wants it done on a beach.
c) Crete has restrictions on certain weddings/locations and permission must be secured in advance, which is why a wedding planner is necessary unless the bride/groom or someone else is prepared to tackle bureaucracy related to it.

Additionally:
– If you live in Thessaloniki, there is no Greek embassy here. All diplomatic missions are outside Greece, so I assume 'here' means you're writing me from the USA. You need to state where you are or don't tell me you live in Thessaloniki, so I understand where 'here' is.
– A marriage license must be issued either in her state of permanent residence and brought to Greece which is what your mayor said (easy) OR issued in Greece which is what the LA embassy said (difficult and lengthy; requires lots of documents, translations, apostilles in USA, then more documents and fees paid in Greece after which it takes approx. week/8 days to process). I say the exact same thing in my article. There's no way to avoid getting a license.
– Each dimos in GR does their own licenses and marriages, but all follow the same laws. There should be little to no deviation.

Comment 1:
I'm so happy to stumble upon your website! I've been leaving all the legal documents and organisation to my fiance, but want to make sure that we are not missing something big here after reading through your advice and readers comments/questions.

I need your advice on something and will try to be clear with my situation. I am getting married later this month in Corfu, Greece.

I'm German/Spanish (German passport, born in Spain), but I have my current residence in the UK. My fiance is Greek-American and resides in the US.

I have been coming to the US as much as possible and am pretty much based here now, though my residency and job is still held in the UK. After marrying we plan to continue with my base in the US since my fiance can't leave his job here, but thankfully my job is flexible enough to allow me to go back and forth as needed and work from the US. We still are not sure of where we wish to reside long term.

What we are sure of though is that we will want to legalise the Greek marriage in the US so that we can proceed with my getting a US Citizenship or some type of legal residence so I don't need to continue coming here as a tourist or work visa.

We have all of the paperwork we need in Greece along with the marriage license and will be getting married in an Orthodox Church as we are both Orthodox.

So, finally the question – what will be the process to get that marriage recognised in the US and then step 2 for us to file papers for my residency? Is there something (a document other than the signed marriage certificate) that we need to be sure to get in Greece to present here in the US?

Thanks so much for your help!!
Kind Regards,
Astrid

Identical comments have been received in less than 48 hours. If a question only takes a minute to answer, I'll do it right away. Your questions don't fall in that category — it will take at least 30 minutes to an hour to research and write a response.

As stated on the front page, I work full time as a journalist and only run this website, update its 300+ articles, curate the Twitter news feed and answer questions in my unpaid spare time.

Answer 1:
For the record, your questions have nothing to do with Greece or Greek laws, but rather US laws and immigration. What I know comes from my own research — not this website or the post above — and I'm responding as a courtesy.

Your fiance could have started the process of bringing you to the US many months ago, plus it takes time to gather the right papers and for the visa to be issued. See, “ Fiancee visas .” Too late now.

Hello – I would be very grateful for some impartial advice!

I've been speaking to 2 wedding planners about the prospect of marrying in a private villa in crete next year. I've heard 2 conflicting versions, could you tell me which is correct?

Planner#1:
“A Greek civil ceremony must be in a place owned by the local municipality. Some municipalities have their own building for civil weddings; [...] There are charges by the Municipalities for marriages which take place anywhere other than the Town Halls. [...]. If however you have a specific location in mind such as your villa, hotel or a beach in an area where the municipality does not perform weddings outside of the town hall then we arrange for the official ceremony to take place at lunchtime on your wedding day at the Town Hall.”

Planner #2:
The ceremony at the villa would be with the Deputy Mayor. He signs a document to say that he's witnessed your marriage at the villa – this paper is then submitted to the town hall clerk who writes everything into the register. The official register is then signed in the town hall with the registrar. The official register is not allowed out of the town hall building.

回复:

I want to be clear that the information I'm giving you concerns having a legal wedding — not a symbolic ceremony — and is sourced from first-hand experience of people I know who got married in Greece, with input from a UK wedding planner on Crete (weddingsincrete.co.uk), who is a bilingual 20-year resident with more than 10 years experience.

The two versions you were given are possible, but the planners are leaving out a few details.

Planner 1:
True — Official civil ceremonies do take place in the local municipality, usually at a town hall or mayor's office. Only there.
Half true — If you plan to have a civil ceremony at a villa, hotel or beach, you need to have a separate official ceremony at the town hall or mayor's office at some point during your stay, not necessarily the lunchtime of your wedding day unless you're only staying one day.
Not true — The municipality isn't involved in ceremonies outside town hall, as they are largely symbolic and charges more likely relate to a wedding planner's fee for whatever arrangements you require.

规划师2:
True — The official register is not allowed outside town hall.
Half true — Papers do need to be submitted to the town hall clerk, but it cannot be done by a representative for you (wedding planner, lawyer, friend, etc.) or a witness alone, even if it's the deputy mayor. You need to go to town hall and sign papers in front of witnesses who are Greek citizens. That's why Planner 1 says you need to have a separate official ceremony in town hall.
Not true — A deputy mayor or any mayor or representative cannot perform or witness a civil ceremony outside town hall and just sign a paper that he saw you get married at the villa, without you ever going to town hall.

The official ceremony at town hall only takes a few minutes if you have the right papers and an appointment (normally required). You go in at the appointed time, you present papers and ID/passport, witnesses present their ID/passport, a register is signed, the mayor or deputy mayor says a few words (which can be translated to English if there is someone bilingual in the room), you both say 'I do', sign something and leave. The marriage certificates are usually ready the next day, it's recorded in the Greek registry, and your wedding planner sends them to you or you pick them up and leave.

I hope that helps, and thank you for trusting me to dispense advice. Wishing you all the best.

Hi there , your site has been so helpful ! I do have a question if you would be so kind to help or have any ideas you could suggest.

Quick background : Both my fiancee and I are American citizens that planned to be married in July 2013 as a civil ceremony by the mayor (so we are told by our family in Greece ). We will have 20 or so guest joining us from the US to stay at the families home right outside of Sparta (Sparti).

1. Would the mayor be allowed to marry us at our families home ( is that allowed) ?
2. I'm interested in your information on avoiding Greek Bureaucracy for getting married. For option (a) , would that basically be just a reception with no option of exchanging of vows ? Or is there a way to have a true civil ceremony and have all the paper work done at home in the US ? For Option (B) , can you please give more details on this option and if this plan would work with a mayor ? Also for option (b) , we both have been married and divorced before so will this be more of headache to accomplish ? Thank you for any information and kind regards !

回复:

Civil ceremonies only take place at mayor's offices and city halls. In the oft chance the mayor or deputy mayor is a family friend, or a wedding planner calls in a favor, perhaps but I highly doubt it. Things don't work here like they do in America.

Avoiding Greek bureaucracy completely would mean getting married in the United States, then having a symbolic ceremony in Greece. It could, in your eyes, be the real wedding with friends and family. But the legal part would be at your local city hall.

If you want to have a true legal civil ceremony in Greece, you'll need to do the bureaucracy. The only part you could do outside Greece is get marriage licenses that have no restrictions, but the rest would need to be done in Greece, including registration and issuing your marriage certificate (in Greek). Previous marriages/divorces don't complicate the process. I cannot give you more details because the article I wrote is password-protected due to official, consular and commercial websites/forums plagiarizing it. If you insist on this, I recommend starting with your local city hall and inquiring about marriage licenses that can be used outside the country, then asking your relatives for help once in Greece. They should be able to call the dimos in the area, get instructions, schedule your wedding date and usher you through the process.

问题3:
I'm a tunisian citizen living in tunisia
my fiancee is polish citizen living in the uk
we are going together to poland to visit her mum then we are going to greece and we want to get married in there
we are both divorced ( i for 3 years and my fiance for a year )

hope this helps you

回复:

Answer 1:
You didn't provide enough specifics for me to help you. But if your girlfriend is in Greece, she can easily find this information by making phone calls to the mayor's office nearest her residence and her church. Because you are a non-EU citizen, you will have a lot of bureaucracy in your future and she needs to get used to helping you.

Answer 2 and 3:
Did you read the article above? It contains 1500 words of free advice that points you in the right direction.

Should you require more information or clarification, you and/or your fiancee can both contact the Greek embassy/consulate in the country of current residence. She also needs to check with the UK Border Agency about requirements to bring you to the UK if you intend to live there. 祝你好运。

Hi we are both Australian looking to marry in Lesvos when we visit in September.

My partner is of Greek Orthodox faith however I am baptised Church of England. Can we have a religious/legal ceremony for the 2 of us? If not possible for religious, I would be more than happy to convert to Greek Orthodox faith.

We have contacted the Greek Consulate in Australia and need to organise paperwork however are lacking some details.

Can you recommend any wedding planners in Lesvos?

谢谢

回复:

I do not advise for religious ceremonies because there's no way a single article can cover all religions of the world, their view on interfaith couples and requirements set by every church in Greece.

Paperwork universal to citizens from all countries is already listed in the 1500-word article above starting with the section 'Having a legal ceremony' and thereafter with translations, apostilles, etc. You need to contact a priest (or priests) directly, plus the church you select for religious ceremonies.

Choosing a wedding planner is highly individual, and I don't make recommendations for reasons given in 'Final Notes.'

您好!

My situation is a little bit different.
I am Brazilian, my husband is American and we live in the USA.
We got married in January, 4th 2013 at a Couthouse in New Jersey. We were planning the wedding party in Brazil. But we dont want to spend thousands of dollars to “feed” or family just to say we had our wedding party.
So, we decided to “join” party and honeymoon in a simple way.
I would like to know if is possible to have a simple wedding like in a chapel in Greece (we want it to be in Oia) to 10 people only? something simple, we take some pictures with family and friends and go to a restaurant to celebrate?

I really want to know how i can hire someone and a little chapel to a wedding and if it would be complicated since we are already married in papers.

谢谢 :)

回复:

Most of your inquiries are already covered in the article.
– In the section 'Avoiding Greek bureaucracy,' I discuss having a “real” or symbolic ceremony for those who marry somewhere else.
– In the section 'Location,' what's allowed depends on where you choose and if permissions are involved.
– In the section 'Final notes,' I recommend you find and interview a number of wedding planners to arrange what you want and negotiate the cost. A simple Google search can get you started.

What you want is possible and very common (not different), but you need to hire a local planner if you're unable to arrange it yourself. 所有最好的。

Hello

Your website is extremely informative and well organised. Thank you very much for all this effort.

You write: 'If having a legal ceremony in Greece is important to you'.

Is it permitted in Greece to have a religious wedding ceremony without any civil wedding and without presenting any marriage certificate from another country?

My fiance and I do not intend to get married legally. We would like to visit to Greece to marry religiously, and without bringing any marriage license or any civilian marriage paperwork.

Is this permitted in Greece?
We understand this means we will legally remain single.

Many thanks for your time.
Assaf

(We are under quite a lot of time pressure for organising our wedding, so if at all possible as speedy response would be very helpful. Many thanks.)

你好
Just to clarify the above post:
My fiance and I do not intend to get married legally anywhere, neither in Greece nor back home (Israel).
But we do wish to come to Greece to do a religious ceremony under the auspices of a recognised religious authority.

In some countries this is not legal.
How about in Greece?
Is this possible and is it a complicated bureaucratic situation?
Thanks again

回复:

Question is already answered in section 'Additional advice,' under the third bullet. My normal policy is to ignore redundant questions, as stated in “ Comments, Questions and Contacting Me ,” which I know you read.

I also state on front page that I provide assistance in my unpaid spare time. Compelling me to respond in less than 8 hours will have the opposite effect.

Hi There,

I'm a greek orthodox living in Australia, and my partner is Roman Catholic. I do not have Greek ID card. We would like to get married in Greece religiously and then in Rome afterwards both religiously and legally (making Rome the legal one). We know that this is not possible as we can only get married in one church.

However, we were thinking that if we get married in Greece first, and it is our responsibility to 'legalise' the documents, what if we do not lodge the Greek Marriage documents, and then get married in Rome a week later? Does the Priest in Greece inform Australia of our wedding to legalise it or is that our responsibility? If it is our responsibility to legalise it, it seems that what we are thinking of doing may be possible seeing as we will not lodge the greek documents anywhere (similar to how Sophie two years ago wrote whether she is legalised in the UK as she didn't lodge the documents).

Thank you so much for your help!!!
I just have a couple of questions:

回复:

You are confusing the word legalise with the word register. They're not the same thing.

Wherever and whenever you get married first, the marriage is legal there and everywhere. There's no extra step to “legalise” it. There's a step to register it, but that has no bearing on its legality.

If you try to get married again — in your case, in Rome — there's a document asking you to state/swear under oath that you are single and unmarried. If you answer yes, you're lying to the church and state. And technically, because you're already married, the second marriage is not legal.

Sophie's situation from 4 years ago isn't relevant to yours because hers was a civil ceremony and the UK has different requirements on registering marriages. Her marriage was legal, just not registered, and she did it unintentionally.

What you're doing is intentional, in a church (or two) and it's clear that you're trying to find a loophole to suit what you want instead of understanding the legal, ethical and religious implications. You should consult Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic priests on this matter.

Hi, I am a catholic marrying another catholic on a Greek island next summer. however my fiance is divorced so we cannot re-marry under traditional catholic service and must therefore apply for a civil ceremony. probably a stupid question but is it possible for us to marry in a greek orthdox Church (we are both legally free to marry). If not is it the mayor of the island that must perform the service and how do I enroll his help to do so? Sorry for being so ignorant but online searches have led me nowhere. 非常感谢。

回复:

As it says in section 'Location,' only two Orthodox Christians are allowed to marry in an Orthodox church, though I've heard of exceptions being made under certain circumstances. I don't know all the variations and encourage people to seek counsel with the priest assigned to the church of choice.

For a Greek civil ceremony, you need to make an appointment at city hall or mayor's office AFTER a marriage license has been secured. It's not guaranteed anyone will speak English, so be ready to navigate all the bureaucracy, phone calls, papers and registration in Greek.

Thank you for the information you are providing. Me and my fiance are both Albanian citizens, I am with a permanent resident status in the US, he lives in Albania. Neither of us have been married before, and we are both legally free to marry. We are planning to have a legal marriage ceremony in Greece. We've been told that after we get the permissions to marry (from the Albanian country),we can go to Greece and have the ceremony in the Albanian embassy. I would like to know if this is the right procedure to have this done and If there are any extra required documents to obtain since after the marriage Im going to petition for him to immigrate to the US. Thank you again :)

回复:

Regarding locations to get married, see section 'Location.'

I do not advise on documents beyond what is offered above since each person's situation is uniquely different. For purposes of immigration, it seems to me you'd want to make this as simple as possible and legally marry in Albania or the US, not involve a third country's bureaucracy and documents in another language.
