Validity of Marriage Certificate
A marriage certificate issued in Cyprus is a legally recognized document. For couples from outside the UK, it may be necessary for, the original Certificate of Marriage to be legalized. For this purpose the so-called “Apostille stamp” must be applied for from either the Ministry of Justice or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nicosia, Cyprus.
There is no need to register your marriage when you get home. After the celebration of the marriage, the Marriage Officer will forward a certified copy of the notice of marriage to the local Embassy or Consulate of such country.
Should you misplace your certificate, you will have to contact the Ministry of Interior in Nicosia, who will issue a replacement document. If you wish to secure one or more certified copies of the marriage certificate, you may apply to the Registration Department of the Ministry of Interior in Nicosia. The charge for each certified copy is €14.00 (subject to change).
