Civil Marriage in Turkey:

The Process and Required Documents

To be able to marry in Turkey, couples need to provide us, as a certified travel agent, with all documents that we need to be able to grant them a hassle-free process:

  1. Obtaining a document from the local Civil Registry Office (Nüfus Müdürlüğü) stating that both the bride and groom are single and eligible to marry. This document is called “Evlenme Ehliyet Belgesi.”
  2. Making an appointment with the local Civil Registry Office to apply for marriage. At this appointment, both the bride and groom must be present, along with two witnesses.
  3. Providing the necessary documents, which include:
    • Passport or Turkish identification card (for both the bride and groom)
    • Birth certificate (for both the bride and groom)
    • Divorce certificate or death certificate of the previous spouse, if applicable
    • Residence permit or visa, if one or both of the parties are not Turkish citizens
    • “Evlenme Ehliyet Belgesi” (mentioned in step 1)
  4. Paying the necessary fee for the marriage application.
  5. After the application is submitted, there is a mandatory waiting period of at least 30 days before the marriage can take place. During this time, the Civil Registry Office will post a notice of the intended marriage to allow for any objections to be raised.
  6. After the waiting period is over and there are no objections, the Civil Registry Office will schedule a date for the marriage ceremony.
  7. On the day of the marriage ceremony, both the bride and groom, along with their witnesses, must be present at the Civil Registry Office. The ceremony will be conducted by a civil servant and will be completed by signing the marriage certificate.
