Easy wedding solutions in Oman Vs Saudi for expats


Both Oman and Saudi Arabia as a land of luxury and grandeur offers several prestigious venues for regal weddings. Unfortunately, the process of legalizing your marriage can be extremely taxing.

As an expat, you will have to go through unimaginable amounts of documentation to start your new life. This process can take weeks or even months before you can finally get married. This is especially true if your paperwork is incomplete, or your partner is not a resident of any of these two countries.

Steps to an easy wedding in Oman for expats

  • Valid residency status in Oman (for either parties)
  • Registration of the marriage (waiting period is at least one month)
  • Waiting to be notified by Justice Ministry
  • Complete application form
  • Approval from the Ministry of interior
  • A registration form 
  • Proof of medical clearance

Oman, just like Saudi operates under Sharia law. This makes planning an easy wedding almost impossible for an expat. It gets particularly difficult when it concerns inter-faith marriages.

Expats usually consider to get married in their home countries due to these hurdles. If that isn’t an option for you, we have plenty of others.
