Getting married overseas

Thursday, November 21, 2002
Here's the scoop on what you need to do if you're thinking about getting hitched overseas!

More and more people are choosing to tie the knot away from home. There are popular places such as Las Vegas, Fiji, Paris and other exotic destinations, and because of the amount of mail we receive in our office, we decided to do some homework for the lovebirds who want a wedding somewhere different.

The good news is you can be married in any country and it will be valid in Australia, as long as you comply with that country's marriage laws, as well as Australia's.

Before you leave, you need to contact the relevant Consulate or Embassy to find out their marriage procedures.

They might have special requirements such as a certificate to prove you are single, possibly a blood test or they may insist you have a civil and a religious ceremony.
