My wedding in Tbilisi Apostille or Legalization seals?

One of the most frequest question is what does mean Apostille or Legalization in your certificate of marriage. The difference is very important to be learn as it can make a big issue to register the marriage later in your country or in your embassy or in a third part country where you are expat and temporary or permanent residents.

Sometimes people does not get attention at all to this matter and frequently they arrived in Tbilisi without to get the proper informations.

The wedding in Tbilisi could be very smooth and fast but it will be not so easy, smooth and fast to register the wedding if you get wrong in this matter.

All countries related l’Hague convention are belong Apostille that practically by-pass your embassy and make quite fast to approch for the registration of your wedding hold abroad. if your country is not belong l’hague convention, you must require a certificate of marriage with legalization. The first legalization seals are from the country issuing the certificate. So the certificate of marriage will have the Legalization seals by Georgian law. On contrary the Apostille, the certificate with Legalization  is not enough for a lot of countries and many Nations requires their seals stamped as well in that document. It means after the release of the official certificate of marriage in Georgia with the Legalization seals, you will need to get the stamp of the related embassy as well.

There are some exception like Canada and few other country and we try constantly to be updated but our advice is to check directly with your embassy or municipality what to get to register your marriage aborad.

Do You have decided the wedding date ?
Do You want a civil or religious rite or rather both?
Have you ever been married ?
Did you check if you need Visa to get in Georgia? Do not ask to me, because I can be in charge for your wedding but not for visas issues.
Maybe the lady wish to take the husband’s surname ?
If you both are not Georgian citizens, did you check if your country or embassy require paperwork with apostille or legalization seals to register your marriage later ?
Are you expats in a third part country (UAE, Qatar, Bahrein…) and you wish to register the marriage there?
Basically these are the right questions you have to do to yourself to optimize the time when you will email us.
In any option, to get married with a Georgian citizen is relatively simple, there are also , as it is normal, some bureaucratic procedures to legalize the status in Georgia and in your Country. If you both are not Georgians, our help and services could be extremely important to avoid any mistake in translations and procedures before, during and after wedding, and to save a lot of time and issues.
If you want to get  married without to spend too much time, certainly the civil rite ceremony is made for you because even the religious rite of the Apostolic Autocephalous Orthodox Georgian church requires ex novo the Baptism… I do not think you are going to take this step , expecially if none is Georgian, however, nothing is impossible and we can help you even for that.
Georgians do the both rituals in the same day to avoid any legal misunderstanding between church and civil law. We talk on this page about what we need to be married with the civil rite ceremony.
