International Marriage Requirements

marrying a non us citizen


If you are planning to have your international marriage outside of the United States, and retain our services for a marriage-based visa–instead of a Fiancee Visa–you should carefully consider and research the following:
*Make certain that you are not only familiar with the country’s international marriage requirements, but also the local governmental requirements such as:

Residency Requirements

Residency requirements for non-residents prior to international marriage in the country and local area. We have had clients who did not comply with local procedures for filing and receiving proper documentation–this will hold up your visa processing.

Waiting Periods

Waiting requirements for international marriage for non-residents and foreign residents after the application for a license or permit is granted. For instance, if you are planning to get married in Russia, there is usually a waiting period of up to 30 days after the marriage license application is filed.

United States Recognition

There are a myriad of international marriage requirements and procedures around the world. And while many are recognized by the United States, it is important to be sure that your marriage will be legally recognized both in the country of your marriage and the United States. Remember, in general, civil ceremonies are accepted as “marriage” in most foreign countries whereas a religious ceremony-by itself- is generally not enough to meet the United States definition of marriage and meet international marriage requirements.

If you are planning to hire an attorney, and you are going to get married abroad, you can call us for a free consultation and get more information about country specific marriage requirements.
