Both Bride and Groom should be in Cyprus for at least 7-5 working days before the wedding. Giving time to have checked your paperwork in advance, the five day rule does not always apply, but it is best to give your self the time . We do recommend that you book a two-week holiday so that the wedding preparations can go smoothly, but a 7 or 10 night holiday can also be accommodated.

It is best obtained 8 to 12 weeks before your wedding date. Please send a copy of this to us as soon as you have it so we can check it out and put your mind at rest.

Important: Please make sure that the document carries the wording “Solicitor" or "Notary Public”. If it is on headed company paper, the header must carry the wording "Solicitor" or "Notary Public".

The stamp itself must also state the word “Solicitor" or "Notary Public”. Without this the document will not be accepted.

After your wedding, you may also be required to visit your country's embassy and the Ministry of Justice here in Cyprus in order to have the papers stamped with the Apostille Seal.
