In Cyprus, we offer weddings with only one or two overnight stays and witnesses for free.

This certificate must be submitted within 3 months of your wedding day to the authorities of your home country or to a consulate / embassy of your home country in your country of residence.

The wedding ceremony:
The language of the ceremony is English or Greek and the witnesses are for free. If you do not understand English or Greek, you need an interpreter (price: about 70, - €). Own witnesses may also translate.
