Jersey residents getting married abroad
It is not our responsibility to find out the requirements of the country you would like to marry in, you need to contact the marriage authorities of the country that you want to get married in and ask what they need.
Leave plenty of time to contact them as each country has different requirements and timeframes.
Apply to give notice to marry
You will need to apply to give notice to marry as if you were getting married in Jersey. State on your application you're applying for a certificate of no impediment.
If you both live in Jersey, you both need to ask for a certificate of no impediment and you both need to give notice.
Apply for a certificate of no impediment
You may need to give evidence that you are free to marry by providing a document called a certificate of no impediment.
25 days after you give notice to marry, contact us to issue your certificate of no impediment.
The certificate costs £100 and it is valid for three months from the date you give notice to marry.
Check with the country you're getting married in what time frames are required for your certificate of no impediment.
