Why getting married in Georgia is the best option for Qatar residents


Let’s just start by saying that getting married in Qatar is not easy. The majority of residents in Qatar are Muslims, who have to marry under Sharia Law, and the marriage is performed in a Sharia Court. A Muslim  man can marry a non-Muslim woman. However, if a Muslim woman wishes to marry a non-Muslim man, the man must convert to Islam. Otherwise, they are not allowed to proceed with  marriage. 

However, not everyone wishes to convert to Islam. A Qatari seeking to marry a non-Qatari has to seek permission from the interior minister. In this article, we will tell you why Georgia is the perfect place to get married. 

What are the laws pertaining to marrying in Qatar

In Qatar, there are no civil marriages for non-Muslims. People seeking to be married legally can do so in embassies or churches. Churches have their own requirements and restrictions. For example, the Catholic Church will only conduct a marriage ceremony if one of the parties is Catholic and the other Christian. This means they cannot marry a Muslim and a Christian. 

Marriage requirements to get married in Georgia

Georgia is a country bordering Europe and Asia. It offers simplified procedures for civil and  religious marriages making it very easy and stress free for couples. It offers valid marriage  certificates recognized by other countries. Georgia is also a very beautiful country favorable for  wedding ceremonies and honeymoon.
