结婚在希腊-游客

温暖的天气,粉刷别墅和钴海都做出完美的背景,在一个希腊小岛婚礼。

浪漫和完美的天气之外,希望结婚在一个希腊小岛或任何在希腊的游客应该知道,有一个合法的仪式将涉及的重要文件,加注和到来之前的翻译(在某些情况下)的集合。

在导航合法性援助,是有帮助的采用合法婚礼策划师谁做跑腿为你,一旦你转发必要的文件。 你将支付超过75-100欧元通常会导致自己做,但至少你的前,后结婚时不会受到官僚机构被宠坏。

*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机构外币及/或语言。

a)提交的结婚证,签署文件和结婚回了家,然后让希腊的“真实”或象征性的婚礼 - 这种方法提供了在不涉及语言,法律,加注,翻译或消费8天一定的好处在希腊,同时给你的自由和灵活性来规划你的行程和游览的岛屿没有国外的限制。

B)收购不受限制回家(也就是说,它并没有说“只有在纽约州好”),适用的加注,把它翻译在希腊领事馆/大使馆,并给它到你的婚礼策划师或者结婚证牧师进行,无需提交进一步的文件。 这也是围绕着八天的规定方式。

*请注意,一些岛屿,从现在结婚对某些希腊岛屿观光客吧,有规定:禁止在考古遗址结婚的法律。 例如,你可以不结婚,在雅典卫城。

从婚礼策划建议书

1,预订日期至少三(3)个月提前,如果五月至十月
2,转发您的文件加注到婚礼策划婚礼日期至少一(1)个月之前,如果你想获得一个结婚证,并在希腊合法仪式
3,完成您的喜好至少30天前抵达,以确保您的需求得到满足或替代品被发现,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; 如果人群和热量是梦想中的婚礼不良因素的影响,最好是选择在四月,五月或十月的日期。
  • 花时间去研究不同的婚礼策划:注意细节在其网站上有时是自己能力的体现,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,民间的仪式,许多教派的宗教仪式,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 - 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。 一定要询问有关此及任何细节,没有明确阐述。 不要假设任何事情。
  • 问问看摄影师,谁就有可能当地的投资组合,并有摄影风格,婚礼蛋糕和鲜花具体的实例来表达你的意愿。

你可能不需要一个婚礼策划师如果你熟悉你所选择的位置,尤其是如果你有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,

另外还要注意在希腊的婚礼蛋糕通常由一个切口底层蛋糕,吉士/慕斯的中间层和奶油在上面和/或双方。 覆盆子馅,软糖,层级和那些在你的祖国钉不常用此处使用的其他元素。 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,以找到最适合你和你的价格范围,就像你会背回家,如果你有时间和机会的人。

有合法的仪式

如果有在希腊合法仪式对你很重要,这些都为世界各地的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国别额外的或更小的要求你。

我已经提供了这一信息纯属作为参考,以协助您决定要处理的合法性在希腊还是在家里。 *如果您至少有一个是任何国籍的希腊居民,以下不适用于你,你必须看,而不是“ 结婚在希腊-居民 。“

您必须年满18岁,则需要:

1,影本各护照

2,影本各证人的护照,如果提供两个自己的

3,对于每一个申请人,在过去的五(5)年认证与加注印刷出生证明书(见下文关于加注详细情况)

4,离婚判决书副本(如有)在过去的五(5)年的认证,每个文档中的一个旁注

5,以前配偶的死亡证明副本(如有的话),在过去的五(5)年的认证,每个文档中的一个旁注

6,通过认证的法院命令名称更改副本(如适用)

7,认证宣誓书,说明你是单身,自由不受阻碍结婚,婚礼日期后三(3)个月内签署

对美国人来说:1)公民可以到美国驻雅典大使馆“位于美国公民服务公证单位的9:00-14:00,无需要预约,凭护照50美元现金或等值的欧元对每个宣誓书,其中在该窗口将给出并完成希在一侧和英语为另一方。 如果你不明白或写希腊,使馆官员可以为您提供帮助。 誓章将审查和批准,而你等待; 或者b)确保从国家登记官“单一”的状态文字和公开声明的公证证明,你是自由结婚。 (你必须咨询你当地的州注册处指导,我还没有提供的例子,因为他们在美国的每个州不同)。

对于澳大利亚人:证书不阻挠对每个申请人的外交和贸易部,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,各认证申请。

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,你的偏好,是否未来的孩子会采取一个名字或其他或两者兼而有之。 法回家将优先于您所陈述的偏好,但你仍然会期待回答。

9两名证人谁是希腊公民和有未到期的护照/ IDS等证明。

10,必须保持至少一(1)个工作日仪式结束后,在希腊登记处(Lixiarxeio)来注册你的婚姻。 这意味着如果你已经结婚周五,你不能前往上周六另一个岛上,必须留到至少周一晚上。 如果周一恰好是希腊的假期,那么你有义务留到周二晚上。

据指出由其他来源,你必须在希腊婚礼日期前至少八(8)天,但这通常需要保证并出具希腊结婚证的时间。 如果你有自己的结婚证或聘请的婚礼策划,以确保希腊结婚证提前,八(8)天不总是必要的。

获得一个加注

一个旁注是应用于证明文件,以显示其法律真伪根据1961年海牙公约废除合法化的外国公文要求的条款国际上使用的密封件。

欲了解更多详细信息,请参阅“ 如何获得一个加注 。“

翻译

翻译是需要出生证明,离婚判决书和死亡证明,但不护照,和你的婚礼策划师可能会或可能不会提供这种作为服务的一部分。 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“ 文件正式翻译成希腊文 。“

结婚证书

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副本,如果你不提供足够的副本满足您的需要回家和个人文件。

位置

婚礼发生在一所教堂,市政厅,市长办公室或选择的预先批准的位置,不是一个注册处,考古遗址或外国使馆/领事馆。

根据笔试正统基督教的宗教法律,只有两个人在同一信仰的人可以在一个东正教教堂结婚,必须提供洗礼证书作为证明,或者必须注明意图转换,并采取精神导师。 这是直路。

不过,牧师全希腊做出的人们不同的信仰,并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。

你需要选择一个位置或教会,并直接与主管牧师或个人来电咨询。 准备进行的所有通信在希腊,因为大多数不会说英语或其他语言。

最后的注意事项

*选择一个位置,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。

且不说注册登记的美国婚姻希腊(这是我们想要做的时候了,这样我就能通过我丈夫的健康保险)的头痛,然后在需要的希腊婚礼是搜集一切之上。 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,仅仅因为我们认为它可能是这样的痛苦做相反。 从你的评论,看来我们做出了正确的选择。

我已经听说这主要是坏事。 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 - 对游客来说,这不是那么糟糕。 对于居民来说,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。 我只是做了。

你说你需要在婚礼后留一天,但是你需要在该国的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,你要在这里1周你的婚礼,这是它需要保证结婚证(因为它在后说)时的日期。 但是,如果你有在您到达之前你自己或你的婚礼策划师文件,或作出安排,否则,这可能不是绝对必要的。 我建议你​​询问,因为每个婚礼策划师,直辖市都有自己的规则和服务。

感谢您发表评论!

Fotini写道@ 2007年7月10日18:21

我在这个过程中间,它是不好玩的。 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。 我们被要求让我们将提高我们的孩子正统的经公证的“信仰的信”......从刨床,她说只是来问一个当地公证的音符,但我无法想象在纽约州公证员会对本在手......你知道wher找到这方面的一个范例?

回复:

嗨Fotini,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。

结婚在希腊东正教教堂,无论是人必须是希腊东正教或他/她必须同意进行转换。 该人士认为同意转换被赋予一个精神导师,需要在婚礼后,完成了一系列的读数。

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,教区或教区得到一个宗教文档。 如果我没记错的话,你和你的丈夫需要去一个牧师和/或宗教顾问。 他们应该能够就如何限定和本函发出。

我听到周围的人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。

一切顺利 :)

马特写道@ 2008年3月3日在22:29

事实上,罗马天主教可以娶别人希腊东正教信仰希腊东正教教堂。 婚姻会受到罗马天主教以及两个希腊东正教教堂的认可。 但是,如果说夫妻是在一个天主教教堂结婚,希腊东正教会不承认这门婚事。 我是天主教徒,我的未婚夫是希腊东正教,我们结婚的东正教教堂在雅典今年六月。 我们已经遇到了牧师,以及咨询了耶稣会神学家的朋友谁也擅长天主教东正教的关系。

回复:

这是很好的了解它的工作适合你。 感谢您分享您的经验。

请注意,我写的基于直资料的文章。 我的消息来源是两位主教在希腊东正教大主教管区及登记处; 我知道几十人谁做的直路,要么不能结婚的教堂和/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”的国度里例外的规则。 如果人们避开直接的方式和它的作品对他们来说,这是伟大的。

许多的祝贺!

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'(你是不是),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被做了搜索,因为它已经在3篇文章这个网站。 另外多余的问题,将被删除。

嗨 - 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 - 离婚希腊。 我结婚5年了 - 然后,他想离婚,现在我的两个儿子(6岁)和我都陷在希腊也去不了,因为他拒绝签署我儿子的澳大利亚护照。 有很多女人和我一样(前拍)的类似职位 - 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; 我喜欢目前有官方的文档和经验更平衡的文章。

我是谁离婚了一位朋友,并很顺利,因为她的前夫是错了,没有什么可质疑 - 他们也是希腊和住在希腊。 我也知道,离婚混合美式希腊夫妇,她有过错,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),尽管他不喜欢这里。 我应该从至少3人离婚希腊(最好是混合夫妇像你这样的问题,你所描述)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,我已经打算结婚的希腊。 我们决定在希腊一个目的地婚礼将花费太高昂了我们,所以我们选择了一个相当小的婚礼在科罗拉多州。 我们现在期待着九月一个孩子,我什至不能开始了解这部分的希腊文化(我很希):人们问我施洗我的宝贝。 我的表弟叫(是的,她告诉我的),她将施洗我的宝贝,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,他们要施洗婴儿。 我觉得荣幸选择教父母被预留给孩子的父母! 总之...比方说我做的,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有希腊洗礼的任何信息? 谢谢!

回复:

V - 我没有对遗传资源的洗礼,此时的任何信息。 我的大多数朋友做了年代久远,不记得任何细节,我的未婚夫是不是一个练习正统基督徒和他的堂兄弟比他年轻无子女。 我敢肯定有人在那里写了一篇文章。 如果你去的类别,也有在babycenter.com一些伟大的女性“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,确认了日期,被告知要出现在一定的时间,但两次,数天前,该服务是要发生,他们呼吁和取消。 市长“很忙”。 坦率地说,我认为他们正在寻找一种贿赂。 我们已经预订了多了一个约会,我告诉他们,最好不要取消。 我不能相信的时候他们可以决定他们都忙不过来娶你? 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,因为这件事情我还没有听说过。 大多数人我知道是谁了民间仪式在希腊不得不在那里提前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,如果你参加了在希腊的婚礼镇有亲戚,朋友们!

我的男朋友是希腊东正教谁住在希腊现在,我受洗的卫理教会在美国,我住在波多黎各(加勒比海)现在。 首先,我们上周做我们的研究,仍然有很多疑点,我们可以结婚在希腊 - 希腊东正教教堂,如果有我们需要做的,以便任何要求,才能做到这一点? 我们可以得到合法结婚的美国,然后通过希腊正教的宗教婚礼在希腊? 将希腊的宗教承认我们的合法婚姻,他们会允许我为卫理公会受洗的基督徒在希腊东正教教堂结婚吗?
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回事。 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,他们之间的规则非常熟悉在这些问题上。

嗨! 谁能回答我的问题 - 我在哪里可以站在法律,如果我结婚了希腊,但从来没有在家里在英国“完成”呢??

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/加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,我们应该以回到市政厅,并收集了入住手续直到星期一的......但我们未这样做。 我现在在这个“半结婚”冷宫。

显然,我们需要做的就是让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理清这最后一​​件事了婚礼。 我们可以就这么走了,因为它是在科孚岛和结婚在英国? 至于英国方面,我们都还是单身我想...。?

回复:

喜柔,谢谢你的问题。 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',并在英国再次结婚。 它更比良心合法性的问题,当你签署了证明你的单身论文。

你提到的palava是我经常建议非希腊夫妇做自己的家园的官方仪式,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

嗨,您好,
我得到了去年在希腊结婚。 I was baptisted a catholic and my wife is a greek orthodox. The fact that I was a catholic was no problem but I had to sign paperwork stating that I would baptise and raise my children in the greek orthodox church. Had I not signed that stuff, the pope would not have performed the wedding ceremony. As you said Kat, there's apparently a large amount of discretion there; it is the priest's call. Just like the payment to the priest for the ceremony. Officially you give what you want. But in fact, the priest fixes the price, and it may be pretty high if you wish to get married in a nice place. In my view this is just another example of the corruption at play in the greek church… Anyway.

Another thing I'd like to add to the discussion: at first we thought we'd get a civil wedding, with a party afterward with family an friends. The thing with civil weddings is that they generally take place at the least convenient of times. When my wife and I were considering it, Athens city council was celebrating weddings only on Wednesdays between 7pm and 11pm, and there would be like 10 weddings in a row in that period of time. Also they could not guarantee that this would take place on that day of the week: maybe they would change it later on, say, for monday morning. In other words: no possibility to plan anything. I think it's a shame: some people might wish to have a civil wedding and a party afterward with all their family and friends. Although civil weddings have been legal since 1981/82 (not sure anymore of the exact date), it's still considered a mere administrative thing. That's unfair and backward.

Thanks for giving the opportunity to discuss this. I love the blog.

最好的,
julien, London

回复:

Hi Julien, thank you for taking the time to write out your story and share your experience. It's always nice when people give back and/or contribute to the website.

It's true what you say about some municipalities in Greece rescheduling civil ceremonies; summer is even trickier when (ironically) Greeks leave for vacation and tourists arrive here to get married. However, some dates and times are solid, allowing people to organize and schedule their lives accordingly — but that's the thing about Greece, “results may vary.” Because civil ceremonies last only a few minutes and the city hall/mayor's office space is so small, I never recommend anyone taking more than 9 immediate family/friends with them and a photographer. Inviting everyone should be reserved for the real party. :)

PS - 评朱利安的帖子。 我们也有不方便的仪式的时间。 他们说,这必须要发生由下午1时至迟。 这意味着我们不得不饲料和饮水我们的75位客人提供午餐和晚餐,整个事情是一个公平一点的价格比我们计划............但我们只是很高兴的仪式,实际上正在发生,因为我们的婚礼策划师说,每个人都在市长的办公室是在罢工和她的丈夫拉弦,我们......这意味着什么!

我们正计划结婚的科孚2011年7月和非常希望有我们的公民仪式举行在别墅Perithia,一些网站说,你可以随时随地结婚在科孚岛,如果你起床了当地市长的许可,这是正确的? 如果它是不可能有婚礼在别墅能不能给我们场地,我们可以结婚的列表。

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(虽然我见过人们解决这个问题)。 有在Perithia别墅没有问题。 谢谢你的提问,并参观。

谢谢你,你有可用的信息。 我是一个美国公民结婚,并在希腊希腊公民。 然而,她是美国的一个H1B签证的居民。 最重要的,你的状态,“如果你至少有一个是任何国籍的希腊居民,以下不适用于你,你必须看,而不是”结婚在希腊 - 居民“

我应该继续追求与游客才能有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已经答应嫁给我们,如果我同意同意我们的任何儿童被提出作为希腊东正教。 (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,你有什么建议将是巨大的。

回复:

你告诉我没有帮助我确定回答你的问题。

正如我所说的,如果你们中间有一个是“希腊的居民。”你们两个是希腊的居民(即,生活在这里的至少6个月为一年)? 我并没有说公民意识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,所以你按照上面的观众给出的建议。

回复:

嗨麦蒂,

正如你可能知道,从你的研究,斯皮纳龙是一个无人居住的岛屿堡垒和考古遗址。 因此,是否可以在足弓结婚将取决于当地政府的许可。 这不是我的专业领域。 我建议,在接触伊丽莎白http://weddingsincrete.co.uk因为她是英国公民,长期克里特岛的居民谁讲希腊语和婚礼策划师用了十年的经验。 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,以找出是否对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。 我们可以使用同一个婚礼策划师在希腊,我可以爱他们,你会恨他们。 所以最好去采访了几个,然后选择之一。

嗨,我喜欢你的网站,并学到了很多东西。 我希望你可以帮我确认一下是什么手续需要2个加拿大人想结婚的克里特岛。 如果我们在加拿大的一个城市展厅的婚礼......有什么我们需要与我们希腊的结婚教堂?

谢谢

回复:

八喜,

有一个小的延迟回答,因为我需要做一些研究,并征求专家意见。

你不能合法地获得再次在希腊结婚。 为什么呢? 要获得在希腊结婚证,你必须让非障碍,验证你是不是结婚了,你已经在加拿大结婚证书。

但是,如果你至少有一个是正统的,你想有一个东正教教堂的仪式上,你们每个人必须提供由东正教教堂在加拿大纸(或其他币种),证明你没有在教堂举行婚礼之前,再加上翻译成希腊文的公证结婚证明书的核证副本(请参阅“ 官方翻译成希腊文 ,“如果你需要帮助)。 这将让您有资格在希腊进行正式的东正教教堂仪式。

如果没有你是正统,那么正式的东正教教堂仪式将只有一个你同意转换成为可能。 (这是真的,人们找到自己的方式与周围的连接,贿赂或与牧师的谈判规则,但我不主张这样。)新教的祝福,都离不开纸。

谢谢你的提问。 它帮助我学习新的东西。

注:在此评论的一些信息由伊丽莎白,谁我咨询,因为她生活和工作在克里特岛25年,安排婚礼为生活提供的。 http://weddingsincrete.co.uk/

嗨,您好,

一如往常你的网站是非常有帮助的。 我在一个类似的位置,帕特。 我是一个希腊澳元(我住在希腊的一年,有我的希腊公民身份)。 我的未婚夫,我现在住在澳洲,他有一个合作伙伴将要签证。 我们需要得到通过可以合法结婚。 因此,我们正在考虑让民间仪式在奥兹。 然而,我们都有家人在希腊,很想有我们的希腊东正教婚礼在希腊。

我读希腊婚礼现场的“Ανσκοπεύετενατελέσετεκαιπολιτικόκαιθρησκευτικόγάμο,πρέπεινατοδηλώσετεμέσασε40ημέρεςαπότηντέλεσητουκάθεμυστηρίουστοΛηξιαρχείοτηςπεριοχήςσας。”......将仅适用于那些希腊居民在本地?

任何帮助将不胜感激。

谢谢...,事事如意!

回复:

奥尔加您好,我记得“ 希腊公民通过血统 “的文章帮你。

40天适用于所有夫妇谁合法获得在希腊结婚,不只是人谁住在希腊,这也就是为什么提示#9上述建议的人,他们必须保持至少一个工作日过去他们的婚礼之日来登记结婚。 这并不适用于你,因为你会被合法地结婚了澳大利亚。 所以你的情况:
a)将在希腊进行正式东正教教堂仪式:同样的文件我告诉帕特。
b)你可以注册结婚澳洲与离您最近的希腊领事馆/大使馆,因此会被记录在希腊你未来的丈夫的oikogeneiaki梅里达。

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.

Time is a factor with your question, and it's late so I'll be direct with my response.

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.

Fourth, the only document(s) you need from the USA is a certified birth certificate (and divorce decree, if any) with apostille(s) applied. If you were born in Minnesota, go in person and get it in a few hours, then get an apostille as explained in “ How to get an apostille .” If you were born elsewhere in the USA, I wish you luck because it takes 10-15 working days to have a birth certificate mailed/received, then another week or more to send off/receive the apostille applied at a different office even with expedited service. I realize you're leaving in 10 days, but you only contacted me yesterday. The only way you can skirt this process is: a) have an immediate family member (parent, sibling) go in person to get the birth certificate and apostille for you, if they live in the city of your birthplace, then express mail it to you; or b) you already have a certified birth certificate with apostille in your possession issued within the last 5 years from the date of prospective marriage.

All translations, fees and other documents can be done in Greece. I detail the entire process in “ Getting married in Greece – for residents ,” but I had to password protect it due to plagiarism and abusive comments. Since you have a fiance here who speaks the language, you'll be fine as long as you hit the ground running and start bureaucracy right away because you must be married and apply for your residence permit before the remaining 75 days of your Schengen visa runs out.

You'll hear nightmare stories about people taking months to sort things out. But I personally witnessed a Greek-American couple who got all their papers together, translations done, marriage licenses issued, married at town hall and residence permit application submitted in three weeks flat from start to finish, without prior knowledge of the process, outside help or paying for expedited services.

One further tip: When you arrive in the Schengen zone, whether it's Athens or elsewhere, make sure to have your passport stamped. If no one is in the booth, seek out an office that will do it for you.

OK, it's almost 2:00 am, and I need to get up for work in a few hours. Please consider giving back and/or recommending the website to a friend in exchange for the personal assistance I provided. All best, and congratulations.

尊敬的吉,
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. 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.

我有一个问题,如果你能回答吧。
我是一个美国公民的结婚到希腊公民在80年代中期。 我们的婚姻在Luthern会发生在美国。 然后,我们来到了希腊和注册我们的婚姻在雅典,虽然他们登记的婚姻作为政治婚姻而不是宗教婚姻。 我的问题是:这是一个合法的婚姻? 我真的很感谢你的帮助。 你可以发邮件给我答案,如果这是可能的。 谢谢你,苏

回复:

你的婚姻是合法的,只要原来的婚姻在美国是合法的。 它仍然是合法的,只要你不离婚,在世界某个地方。

注册您的婚姻希腊不失效或现有的婚姻给予更多的合法性。 它所做的就是建立在一个希腊公民的oikogeneiaki梅里达的记录,并告诉希腊当局,你是什么地方结婚。 它不记录为'宗教'的婚姻,因为它不是希腊东正教。 它无关的合法性。

嗨。

我的女儿希望有一个民间婚礼在克里特岛。 他们只是两个美国公民。 我住在塞萨洛尼基。 我的市长有跟我说,他们所需要的是从他们的居住状态的结婚证。 我的女儿联系在洛杉矶的希腊大使馆,被告知她需要的出生证书,单身,apostiles,翻译,希腊教统局在这里,没有从这里需要结婚证certificatied。 没有提到的第8天的等待。 我打电话给使馆,被告知每个DIMOS做自己。 在这里,我读其他的选择。 我的女儿要结婚在克里特岛海滩。 她不希望将其注册在美国在这种情况下,你知道什么是必要的吗?

回复:

我很清楚什么是需要的,但我不能劝你/她的理由有三:

a)你没有提供足够的信息。 也就是说,什么是你女儿目前的婚姻状况,为什么她不希望登记结婚,在美国
b)你没有提供的信息是相互矛盾的,这可能是你得到不同的信息的原因。 也就是说,民事婚礼是在市长的办公室或市政府进行的,但你说你的女儿想它在沙滩上完成的。
C)克里特岛有一定的婚礼/位置和权限限制必须提前保证,这就是为什么婚礼策划是必要的,除非新娘/新郎或别人准备应付官僚主义与之相关的。

此外:
- 如果你住在塞萨洛尼基,这里没有希腊大使馆。 所有外交使团是希腊之外,所以我想'这里'是指你从美国写我。 你要说明你在哪里,或不告诉我你住在塞萨洛尼基,让我明白的地方'这里'是。
- 必须出具无论是永久居留的她状态的结婚证,并提请希腊这是你的市长说的话(容易)或发行在希腊这是洛杉矶大使馆所说的(艰难而漫长的,需要大量的文档,翻译,在美国的加注,那么更多的文档和希腊支付的费用后,它大约需要一周/ 8天处理)。 我说在我的文章同样的事情。 有没有办法来避免受到许可。
- 在GR每个DIMOS做自己的牌照和婚姻,但都遵循同样的规律。 应该有很少或几乎没有偏差。

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!!

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.

答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.

In order to immigrate to the US as a spouse, your fiance/husband needs to meet a number of requirements and formally file a petition before an immigrant visa is issued. This is typically done in cooperation with the US embassy/consulate in whatever country is your current residence. See, “ Bringing your spouse to live in the United States .” While waiting for the immigrant visa, he can file a petition to issue a non-immigrant visa to bring you over. See “ K-3/K-4 Nonimmigrant visas .” You cannot move to the US just because you're married. You must be outside the US when these visas are issued, then use them to formally enter the US

In order to get US citizenship, you need to live there for several years, go through naturalization and pass several tests. Same as naturalization in Germany. You can read all the requirements at: “ Naturalization for spouses of US citizens .”

How your marriage in Greece is recognized depends on US laws, not Greece. A legal marriage performed and registered in Greece (Step #9 in 'Having a legal ceremony') is seen as a legal marriage in the US There isn't a separate “legalization” or “recognition” process for the US because something that is already recognized and legal doesn't need to be recognized or legalized.

After your marriage is registered, you are given Greek marriage certificates stamped by authorities. Should you need to show a Greek marriage certificate to anyone outside Greece — US/German/Spanish/UK authorities — simply take the Greek marriage certificate and get an apostille to certify its authenticity. See, “ How to get an apostille ” (section 'Greece'). Then have the marriage certificate and apostille translated into whatever language is needed, according to the requirements of that country.

To answer any future questions, I recommend using the ample resources made available by the US government and well-informed US embassies and consulates.

Bonus info unrelated to your questions: As a Greek citizen, your fiance/husband is obliged to report a marriage or any change in status to his oikogeneiaki merida. He'll know what I mean.

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.

Planner 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.

回复:

答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。

您好

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.)

您好
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?
再次感谢

嗨,您好,

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. 他们是不一样的东西。

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. Many thanks.

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. 再次感谢您 :)

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.

嗨。 I married in lindos in 2002. Unfortunately we have separated 3 years ago & I want to re marry now. The marriage was never registered in the uk & I have filed for divorce but the judge wont allow this as the marriage was not registered here & we are not recognised as been married under uk law. We did not provide all the correct papers in greece at the time & didn't provide translated documents. We did however get given a marriage certificate which the uk courts say are not certified. Same has been said of the copies we had sent over from greece. Does this mean we are not legally marriage in greece? Am I free to marry again?

回复:

In Greece. Because you didn't submit translated documents or the correct papers that are absolutely required, it is unlikely you had a legal marriage and even more unlikely it's officially registered. That's why you don't have a certified marriage certificate, which the UK confirms.

In the UK. If you never registered the marriage in the UK, and the judge confirms that you aren't recognised as married under UK law (which is why you cannot divorce), then you are free to marry. See commentator Sophie above you who had a similar situation.

No country has you on official record as ever marrying, so legally/technically this is your first marriage though you know it's your second.

Wishing you all the best.

嗨,您好
I got married in lindos in 2010 and unfortunatelly now am trying to get a divorce. Our marriage has not been registered with british authorities and I have been trying to obtain a copy of marriage certificate from greece but am having no luck, I tried greek embassy, they told me to ask the municipality, I emailed and called the municipality of rhodes many times but received no answer! I am running out of ideas and require the copy very urgently.

WOuld you be able to assist ? Who do I contact to get the copy of the marriage certificate?

2:
Also reading some of the comments above how do I make sure the marriage is actually legally registered in Greece??

嗨,您好
I was wondering if you could help?
I got married in Greece, lindos in 2010 and require the copy of my marriage certificate. I have been told to contact the municipality of the place, but am having no luck after calling and emailing.
Could you suggest who I can call/contact to obtain the copy of the marriage certificate?
谢谢

回复:

1:
The municipality city hall or mayor's office, or the official registry (lixiarcheio) in Athens, are the only places you can get a copy of marriage certificates. These offices typically close at 11:30 or 12:00 GMT.

I am a private citizen. My taxes pay for government officials to assist you, and I run this philanthropic website in my unpaid spare time.

2:
You are legally married, assuming you submitted all the paperwork and a license. To determine if you're registered is a different matter and a lot more information and access to your official records would be required.

3:
See answers 1 and 2.

您好!
I love your website. It's very interesting to read everyone's different situations.
This is our situation. We want to have our ceremony at at Greek Orthodox Church in Santorini in May of 2015. We had a Civil Ceremony- to get our Marriage Licence, in Chicago, IL. The licence does not say that it is only valid here in IL.
We don't want to go through this whole process of Apostille stamps, translations, etc.
We only care about having a religious ceremony.
We planned to get married sooner in Greece. We had a legal marriage here first. Then we were in a horrific car accident where I was hurt very badly. Thus, we had to postpone the Church Wedding in Greece.

Does it help us that we are already legally married in the US?
太谢谢你了!

The same information I gave 'Pat' on March 11, 2010 also applies to you. You already had a civil ceremony and don't want a legal ceremony in Greece. You only want a church wedding. Same situation, just replace the word Canada with the United States.

Glad to hear you're on the mend and plans are moving forward for your church wedding on Santorini. Wishing you all the best.

Hi,I really found your article useful but I'm kind of lost here. Well, my partner and I are Lebanese Maronite Christians and would really love to have a small romantic christian wedding in Greek. Can you please tell me if it is possible to do so? And can you please suggest some places to do it or some people to contact?? We would really appreciate your help. 谢谢

回复:

Please read advice and information in 'Location' and 'Final Notes.' 所有最好的。

my fiance and I plan to get married in greece although our marriage will be registered in india.
my fiance is jewish and I am a hindu.
greek weddings have always fancied me therefore I would like to know if there is a possibility for the same. also it is just going to be the two of us with a short time so we want to keep it simple and nice for an experience!

look forward to hear from you.
many thanks,

As the article says above, you can have a symbolic ceremony in Greece if you plan to legally marry and register the marriage in another country. 所有最好的。

Hi girls (and guys!). I am Greek, registered at Rhodos, my fiance Dutch and we would like to marry in Thessaloniki because I used to live there and all my friend live there. The church is out of question. I have heard from friends that you can marry at Villa Bianca at Vasilissis Olgas or the Botanical Garden at Stavroupoli. But at Villa Biance you cannot enter the monument with all your guests and we would like to marry during October. How can we find the places that you are allowed to get married in Thessaloniki? Also, we would like to marry on Saturday or Sunday and not on a Wednesday (at the City Hall).
After reading the posts above we decided to get married here in Holland and then drop a party there in Thessaloniki. But we would like it to look like a wedding there also….You know, to have the whole wedding feeling. Any ideas would be much appreciated. 提前致谢!
