Getting Married in Seychelles: A Hassle-Free Guide for Filipinos

HOW CAN FILIPINO GET MARRIED IN SEYCHELLES?



Marriage Ceremony:

  • Conducted in English or French by the Seychelles’ Registrar

  • Can take place anywhere (beach, hotel, or other venue)

  • No need to visit the Civil Status office

  • Two witnesses are required (provided by complimentary byHERA if you’re travelling alone)

  • Preferably held on weekdays

  • Additional fee for weekends or public holidays


DOCUMENTS AND REQUIREMENTS IN SEYCHELLES

Philipinos marrying Philipino or any other Nationality

Getting married in Seychelles is a breeze, especially with minimal document requirements. All that is needed for a civil marriage are:


1. Copies of their passports

2. Copies of their birth certificates (affidavit in absence of birth certificate).

(An affidavit is just a form that needs to be filled in by the person who does not have a copy of the birth certificate stating that the date and time of birth are correct as per their knowledge.)


If applicable:


3. Divorce certificate (if previously married and separated)

4. Death Certificate of the former spouse (if widowed)

5. Legal proof of a change of name (If the name is different on any of the documents)


Note: All the documents must be either in English or French. In case any other language is used on the documents, a certified translation of the documents will be required. (Certified - Signature and Stamp on the Translator is ok, apostilled or notory is not required.)


REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PHILIPPINES

If you’re living in the Philippines, or you live in the UAE or any of the GCC countries (Gulf Cooperation Council countries – Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates). Still, you need your wedding certificate to be legalised for the Philippines as well, we’ve got good news.


Both the Philippines and Seychelles are members of the Hague Apostilles Convention. This means your wedding certificate from Seychelles will have an apostille stamp and will also be valid in the Philippines.


There is only one additional step that you’ll need to perform.

You’ll need to send your wedding certificate to Nairobi, Kenya by completing all the necessary requirements to register your wedding certificate in the Philippines. Once the embassy registers your wedding certificate, you will receive the original documents by courier, and that’s about it.
