The primary requirement for foreign citizens to get married in Monaco is to reside in the Principality for at least 30 days prior to the wedding.
Every wedding must be preceded by publication by mean of an announcement.
This announcement will be posted on the door of the Town Hall for a period of 10 days, which must include two Sundays.
The following documents are to be submitted:
• Certificates of birth of the couple to be married or an attested affidavit issued by a Justice of the Peace or another magistrate at the birthplace or place of domicile;
• Certificate of death of the mother and father, if necessary, where one of the couple to be married is a minor;
• Certificate of death of the husband or wife in that case of a widow or widower remarrying;
• Certificate of consent signed in the presence of a notary by the father or mother who will not be present in person at the wedding where one of the couple to be married is a minor;
