Hello!

Me and my girlfriend from Minsk, Bealrus, want to get married in Minsk. She is from Belarus and I'm from Norway.

I wonder if someone can give me advice for documents I need to bring to Bellarus for marriage. Other experiences from marriage in Belarus are welcome :)

Thanks for answer

Your passport, birth cert and proof that you are free to marry (ie not marred now) you will have to get a letter from what ever government department in Norway keeps all such records, Thats it, i think.
Your Girlfriend could contact any register office in Minsk and find out for sure

Besides translating all those documents with an officialy recognised translator, to have the birth certificate with an appostille and finaly getting the proff that you are not married now is far from being an easy task. In Minsk there is only one marriage office that provides all that information and where the cerimony will have to take place

A non Belarus citizen getting married in Belarus to a citizen of that country is (from experience) a bureaucratic nightmare. Look closely into all details as I believe there is at least a one month's residency period before a marriage is allowed and in Belarus, only civil ceremonies are performed. I went thru same experience last year and our ultimate, least complicated result was to meet in and marry in Jamaica. Jamaican marriages are legally recognized world wide. Any resort, with help of your travel agent can make arrangements and tell you exact documents required. You would not regret a beach side wedding overlooking the aqua-marine blue Caribbean Sea.

I got married in Belarus and none of that was required. Birth certificate, and passport, both apostilized, and an apostilized document showing you aren't already married and a simple marriage at the ZAGS office.

Your girl friend needs to contact the ZAGS office in Minsk and find out all the proper documentation that will be needed.

She can do this very easily...much easier for her to do it then you.

Belarus does not recognise dual citizenship, the person will be considered as a citizen of Belarus only, the waiting period has now been reduced to 3 days instead of 30 so no residency is required, you just have to bring birth certificate and passport, birth certificate must bear an apostile, you can get from department of state from the state you were born in, and you will need a "certificate of free status" showing you are legally free to marry, this must be gotten at your country's ebasy in Minsk, if you are divorced you have to have a copy of your divorce decree with apostille gotten from dept. of state in the state where divorce was done, all of these must be translated into Russian and this must be done at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Belarus, translating somewhere els is not accepted, you can get the address for the MFA from your embasy in Minsk, that's it, very simple, I'm getting married there in May (next May) all of this information I received as of a few days ago from Minsk US embasy, it's all current. Don't try for a marriage in June or July, long waiting list and your visa will expire. Your spouse can apply for your permanent residency status imediately after marriage based on marriage to a citizen of Belarus, once filed you can remain in the country while waiting for aproval or denial, very few are denied, good luck! Congrates on your marriage!

Just to note (I'm getting married in 2 weeks) There has not been any requirement for me to submit a birth certificate. I am a resident here already on a work visa so that might change things.

Hi, I am from Scotland and my girlfriend is from Belarus, I plan to go to visit her in August and we will marry. I understand that you are correct in what you say. Do you know of any other 'hoops' we might have to jump through ? Except for the UKBA stuff. Oh and where in Belarus did you's get married ?

Regards

We were married in Minsk Oblast. You will need translated documents...your birth certificate, etc... after you get them apostilized. Make sure she goes to the ZAGS office and gets a list of everything you will need. After you get the documents in Scotland, send them to her so she can take them to a translators office and get everything in order. Then when you arrive you will have a few more documents to sign, set up an appointment at the ZAGS office for a civil marriage and your good to go.:)

Get your certificate of no impediment. Take birth certificate, certificate of no impediment with apostille stamp and passport to belarus. Have copies of the documents translated. Register with zags in her local area. Set a date. Come back in about 1 month and get married. It's not a nightmare and fairly easy.

5 Years of marriage and you have to drop your current nationality (Belarus doesnt accept/recognize double nationality)
