CAN EX-PATS HAVE AN EASY WEDDING IN OMAN?

Oman is a beautiful country that welcomes every year ex-pats from any country. It is also one of the best countries for how easy it is to settle in. However, depending on cultural and religious backgrounds, ex-pat couples may consider an easy wedding in Oman quite unfeasible.

We’ll have a look at the wedding requirements and evaluate which other options are available.

WHAT EX-PATS SHOULD KNOW FOR AN EASY WEDDING IN OMAN?

The wedding process in Oman is under Sharia law. There are no civil marriages in Oman. However, if a couple can’t marry in a church, mosque, or temple, then they need to do it at an embassy. Ex-pat couples must also need to consider the long time-consuming steps below in registering their marriage: 

  • Couples need to register marriages with the Department of Notary Public in Al Khuwayr. And it usually takes one month.
  • Registration requires a completed application form, including notification of marriage from the Justice Ministry.
  • Ministry of Interior will ask for an approval letter.This applies to couples who marry foreigners.
  • Couples need to fulfill a registration form

Only if there are all the above conditions, couples will get their certificate of marriage. So, an easy wedding in Oman could not be the fastest option for those who have very strict time available like crew members.

WHICH OTHER OPTIONS EX-PAT COUPLES CAN EVALUATE TO HAVE AN EASY WEDDING?

Although Oman is a beautiful place to set up a new family, to avoid the above difficulties, ex-pat couples may evaluate easier solutions to tie the knot in Seychelles, Georgia, UAE, or even online. Georgia and Seychelles provide ex-pats couples with the Marriage License, which is acceptable all over the world, in only a few days. Moreover, recent family laws make it possible to get married for ex-pats in the UAE too. Online marriage has the advantage of being able to take quickly place anywhere, whether it’s at home or a special location.
