Civil Marriage in Ankara
Getting married in a foreign country may seem like a big project. But if you're craving the excitement of travel and exotic feel of a destination wedding, then choose a ceremony in Ankara, Turkey. Let us do the planning to save you the energy.
A civil marriage means that you have a legal ceremony that's officially recognized by your own government and the Turkish government. It's very similar to the proceedings in your own country and requires specific documents to be approved. If your marriage in your own country wouldn't be legal, then Turkish officials won't recognize it as legal, either.
Getting Married Overseas
The consulate from your own country processes all the marriage paperwork. They are the ones who will work with documents from overseas and the official Turkish forms as well.
You'll need legal documents from home, like your birth certificate. These papers are a requirement for both parties, bride and groom. If you've changed your name, you'll need documents proving that you are who you say.
If you're not Turkish citizens, you'll also have extra forms because you're foreign. You'll each have to get a Certificate of No Impediment, which verifies that you're legally able to marry and nothing prohibits you. There are other requirements, too, like extra passport photos, blood tests, and health checks.
For anyone who's been married before, you'll have extra forms besides the certificate, proving that you're able to marry again. For instance, if your spouse died, you need a copy of the death certificate. If you got a divorce, then a copy of the divorce decree will show that you're not married anymore.
Getting married overseas means a whole new setting and place to explore. Don't let the paperwork stop you. If adventure is important to you, then begin your life together with a whole new adventure.
