There's no denying the romance of Vanuatu's intimate tropical setting. The friendly locals and traditional culture make for a charming atmosphere and the perfect place to celebrate your love. Many people flock to Vanuatu each year to be married, re-affirm their vows or honeymoon and a Vanuatu wedding will make your special day extra special. It is important to remember that you will need to notify the authorities a month before you wish to be wed as well as providing a range of documentation. Arrange a Vanuatu wedding package to ensure everything is taken care of and that getting hitched goes off without a hitch.
Vanuatu weddings are legally recognised worldwide, however you will need to complete and lodge some documentation at least 28 days prior to your ceremony. This includes copies of:
• Your birth certificates and passports
• A completed Notice Of Intention to Marry Form
• Divorce papers or former spouse’s Death Certificate (if applicable)
• Completed Witness Forms – 2 witnesses are required. Witnesses will need to provide names, place of birth, date of birth, parents’ names, residence and occupation.
You must also be in Vanuatu together for at least three days before the wedding.
