How to Get Married in Russia and Ukraine if You are a Foreign Citizen

Marriage in Ukraine or Russia

If you decided to get married in your bride's country you have to be ready to:

• Prepare the proof that you are not married back in your country (it has to be an official document confirming that you are single and legitimate to marry)

• Have passport and visa (if required; basically any document that proves that you've crossed the borders of the country legally; or have a residence permit)

* Make sure that all documents are translated to Russian or Ukrainian (accordingly) and all notarized.

Marriage in your country

If you decided to bring your bride to your country to wed her, that would be a bit troublesome. As women from countries of the former Soviet Union require visa. And not just visa, but a bride visa, that will allow them to get married on the territory of your country. If you're from US your bride has to apply for a K1 visa. And with that type of visa you get more work to be done. The whole process can take from 3 to 12 months. But nobody says that it's impossible, since so many people managed to marry foreigners.

Marriage in other countries

If you're from US and your bride from Ukraine (for example) and you both decided to arrange your wedding in Italy or Shri Lanka, that's a whole different story. In this case, you both have to make sure that your marriage would be legitimate in your countries. Since it's really hard to get the precise information online or even in an embassy, you can consider hiring a professional attorney, that has experience in such a case, and will help you during all the paperwork process.

P.S. Remember, it doesn't matter where you get married, if you both love each other, as love doesn't have borders, and it doesn't require visas and passports.
