Gibraltar is considered a very easy place to get married as there are no residency restrictions and you can get married with 24 hours’ notice, providing that you have all the correct documentation.
Things to know…
To get married at Gibraltar’s Registry Office (Address: 3 Secretary’s Lane, Gibraltar GX11 1AA, Gibraltar Phone: +350 200 72289) you need to present yourself at the registry at least 24 hours before you wish to get married. You will need the following:
- Your birth certificates
- Your passport
- Your “Certificate of No Impediment”
- A copy of your divorce decree absolute, if you’ve been married before
- Proof of stay letter and paid invoice from the property you are staying at
A new law in Gibraltar means that you do have to stay at least 1 night in Gibraltar accommodation whether that be a Short Term Rental Apartment or a Hotel either just before you get married or on the night of the ceremony to be wedded.
Another thing to be aware of when producing the documentation at the registry office is that they will not accept photocopies or scans of any document, only original documentation will be accepted.
If you are a non-resident travelling only as a couple, the registry office does require two witnesses for the signing of the prenuptial agreement. Not to worry as this can be anyone from a family member to a stranger. Normally people do wait outside the registry office to help any couples who don’t have witnesses, they will witness the marriage for a small fee.
