  • *Application letter, certified by a Notary Public (must be in English and signed by both parties),  indicating that both applicants are single and want to marry in Zanzibar (extremely important) with the intended date of marriage.  This document should include the following information: domicile, birth registration information, names, birth dates and birthplace of parents. 

If Required

  • *If you have been divorced: Decree Absolute is required.
  • *If you have been widowed: The former marriage certificate and original death certificate
  • *If you have changed your name: Deed Poll certificate will be required. 
  • *If you have been divorced and have reverted to using your maiden name then this counts as a name change and proof will be required.

*The Notary Public signature should be made in red or blue ink so that cannot be mistaken for a photocopy. All documents, including the passport photos for Zanzibar weddings MUST be certified by a Notary Public with their stamp. The Notary Public stamp (ideally blue or red ink) must clearly show the name of the Notary & that they are Notary Publics - e.g. Harrison/Bennett & Webb Notary Public, 29 Rye brook, Farnborough) accompanied by a signature. Without this, the authorities in Zanzibar will not allow the Wedding to proceed.

* all documents require Notary Public certified stamp

Before you travel:

Guests marrying in Zanzibar will need to send the certified documents listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date of travel.  You must take the original of all your documents with you.

Certified Documents

This is a photocopy of an original document which is stamped and signed in red or blue ink by a Notary Public as proof that it is a true copy. 

In Resort:

Civil ceremonies must be held in the morning and on weekdays only.  Civil Wedding will take place on the beach with the Regional Commissioner coming to the hotel to perform the ceremony; however, in the event that this is not possible it will be necessary to go to the Regional Commissioners Office. Upon returning to the hotel, there will be a symbolic ceremony on the beach with a decorated canopy. In this event, the couple will have to exchange their own symbolic vows. All out door and beach activities are dependent on tides and weather.

ALL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS MUST BE TAKEN WITH YOU WHEN YOU TRAVEL

Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples:

•        Born in the UK & have a valid UK passport (with some months validity on return home)

If couples do not fulfil these requirements they must advise us.  Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own.

As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements.  We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them.  All prices and legal requirements correct as of  July 2015.
