Getting married in Seychelles is a hassle-free procedure without any bureaucracy, especially binational marriages are easy to conduct. As we provide you not just the Seychelles’ Marriage Certificate but also the Apostille from the Supreme Court of Seychelles, your contraction of marriage in the Seychelles will be accepted worldwide without any doubts.

Required Documents for your official marriage in Seychelles

You can send scans of the required documents to us easily by e-mail. This is sufficient for the Civil Status to proceed with the formalities.
Please bring the originals or certified copies for verification purpose with you to the Seychelles.

Usually just these documents have to be provided:

  • Copies of your Passports
  • Copies of your Birth certificates

If you were married before and kept your partners surname after the divorce,
you will have to provide a copy of your divorce certificate/ decree absolute.
If widowed: Please provide death certificate of former spouse.
If you had your name changed, you have to provide a legal proof.

All documents have to be in English or French. Otherwise you have to provide certified translations of the documents (but no need for Apostille).
Please note: We can do the necessary translations for you, too.
