Getting Married in Dubai
Legal Requirements & Documentation

The UAE offers several options for getting married but depending on your nationality and residency status, getting married in Dubai can range from straightforward to time consuming and complicated. Certain conditions mentioned below must be met and there is a strict procedure and timeline in which paperwork must be submitted. There are representatives of almost all religions available in Dubai and the UAE, and it’s possible to invite a religious priest from your country to conduct your wedding ceremony.

If the marriage certificate is issued in English, this must then be translated into Arabic by a court approved translator and submitted to the Notary Public Office for certification, in order for the marriage to have legal validity. This may require a UAE Residence Visa to be able to do this.

There is a set procedure and paperwork for Islamic marriages which differs from non-Islamic marriages. The procedure and paperwork for non-Islamic marriages varies depending on nationality. Residents can get married at the Dubai Court or Abu Dhabi Judiciary. Non-Muslims may not marry in the Dubai Court. Marriage of non-Muslim residents may only happen in their embassy (if allowed), church, temple etc.

If you cannot meet all the above criteria, you always have the option to legally marry in your home country and then celebrate your wedding in Dubai with a symbolic ceremony or blessing.
