MARRIAGE BY NOTICE
As a first step, the interested couple (who should be in possession of legal identification - passports and birth certificates) must submit a "Notice of Marriage" to the Marriage Officer. This Notice, which is completed by the Marriage Officer and signed separately by each of the two parties, is accompanied by a statement of particulars of the persons concerned, on the basis of their passports.
At the same time, each of the two parties must make a declaration on oath or affirmation before the Marriage Officer that they know of no impediment or lawful hindrance to their marriage.
The interested persons should also furnish a certificate indicating that they are not married. If however the Marriage Officer has any doubt about the accuracy or genuineness of the certificate furnished by the interested persons, or if the interested persons are unable to produce such an official document (like British citizens) they will be called upon to make a sworn declaration before the Registrar of a District Court that they are single and have never been married before. However divorcees have to present the "Decree Absolute" of their dissolved marriage and widows/ers have to present the "Certificate of death" of their late partner. Also they both have to make a declaration on oath (affidavit) that they have never been married again since then.
When these formalities have been completed, the marriage must be celebrated within 15 clear days at the earliest, or within 3 months at the latest, from the date the notice is given. If, for any reason, the marriage is not celebrated within 3 months, the notice given and all consequential proceedings are considered to be void. In fact, interested persons, in order to have a civil marriage by notice, should stay in Cyprus for about 20 days.

license. For this purpose, the couple must complete jointly and submit to the Marriage Officer an application giving particulars of themselves, on the basis of their passports and birth certificates.
