How to Get Married in Spain
Be sure to plan ahead
if you are getting married in Spain. Approval of a marriage application
often takes as long as 45 days. Policies and procedures will vary
from region to region, so you should consult with regional authorities
as early as possible.
You may choose to
have a civil or a religious ceremony (or both). If you decide
to have both ceremonies, the civil ceremony must be performed
before the religious marriage takes place.
Applications and/or Documents Required: Bring along original copies of the following (and be sure pack these in your hand luggage, never in your checked bags):
After you have assembled
these documents and the ceremony is performed, the marriage is
then recorded in the Civil Registry and a Spanish marriage certificate
Couples will need
to first obtain authorization from the Civil Authorities by presenting
the documents listed under "Civil Marriages".
Spanish law recognizes
Catholic, Protestant, Islamic and Jewish marriages as valid in
Spain without the need of a second civil marriage. Regulations
may vary depending on the religious denomination.
