Wedding Etiquette – New York Civil Wedding Ceremony for Non U.S. Citizens

Guest Author - Victoria

Hi Victoria,

How are you? My name is January, I am a Filipina and Roman Catholic. My fiancé is from Lebanon and is Muslim. My question is will it be possible for us to have a civil wedding in New York? I read the letter you posted for a British who asked you the requirement but will this also apply for a Filipina and a Lebanese who wish to marry? We are both working as cabin crew with Emirates Airlines and we both have flights to New York. However, the layover stay is only 24 hours and we only have crew visa. Will this create a problem for us? We can't do anything about the crew visa. But regarding the 24 hours layover, we can probably request to have 2 or 3 New York flights in a month.
We would really appreciate your advice on this matter. Thank you and have a nice day!

January

Hi January,

No matter your race, nationality or religion, the New York marriage license requirements are the same for everyone. You can definitely get married in Manhattan at city hall provided that you pick up your marriage license during your first layover and schedule a civil wedding ceremony at city hall within 60 days of the date you received your marriage license. That means you have to schedule your next 24 hour layover trip within that 60 days.

Please make sure to read up on New York marriage license requirements to make sure you bring the appropriate documents with you when you go to city hall.

Happy planning!

Thanks for writing,
Victoria
