Most common Wedding questions
Abortion Law in Oman: Do you know what is it ?

People who are Omani residents or ex-pats cannot opt for abortion as a choice due to its illegality. Although dating is not allowed in Arab countries like Oman, if any women get pregnant before marriage, they have to go through a strict marriage process. If your case is like this, what other options will suit you?

Why do Omani Women face challenges with abortion?

The only time abortion is permitted in Oman is when required to save the woman’s life with the consent of her husband. A certificate from multiple registered medical practitioners working in government hospitals verifying that the ongoing pregnancy poses a threat to the woman’s life is essential. Additionally, a marriage registration certificate is required to prove the couple’s marriage.

The act of abortion is punishable in Oman. Women caught buying abortion pills in Oman will be punished along with their helpers.

Concerning punishments for breaching the law

  • In accordance with article 244, women who take any contraceptive for abortion on their own will be sentenced to prison for three months to three years.
  • Those who intentionally perform abortions on pregnant women against their will are sentenced to 5 years in prison.

Words of Advice for Pregnant mothers living in Oman:

Are you pregnant before wedlock? No worries at all. We advise you of other suitable choices for you to start a happy family. Consider Georgia, Seychelles or online as top-notch preferences in all. If you get married in relaxed places like Georgia or Seychelles, you will receive your marriage certificate within 2 weeks. Couples also opt for online weddings, especially for those who have difficulty traveling. 

A happy marriage is a dream of every couple, no matter whether your love is pregnant or not. Contact us today!

Why getting married under Sharia law is complicated for expats

Oman is not known to be a popular destination for expat weddings. Many international mixed couples tend to get married in other easy-wedding countries or online. It is only required that the bride and groom both be Omani residents. The wedding reception can also be held at a venue of their choosing. However, that is not the case for the wedding ceremony; even beach marriages are restricted there.

Why do mixed couples not easily get married under Sharia law in Oman?

Listed below are the long time-consuming steps involved in registering a marriage under Sharia Law in Oman.

  1. Marriages must be registered with the Department of Notary Public in Al Khuwayr. It usually takes one month for this to be done.
  2. Registration includes a completed application form, including notification of marriage from the Justice Ministry.
  3. An approval letter is required from the Ministry of Interior. This applies to couples who marry foreigners.
  4. A registration form can be filled out by the wife, the husband or even the father.

Getting married under Sharia law in Oman

The process of getting married in Oman under Sharia law might seem simple, but the lack of certain documents can lead to many complications. The complexity of your wedding in Oman may increase if you marry someone of another belief or nationality.

Usually, couples wish to organize their big fat day on beaches without any fuss. Getting married in Seychelles, Georgia or online is a relatively trouble-free option for all expats. Celebrate your day in the romantic locations as you always want to. If you wish to take the right steps for your wedding, we urge you to seek the advice of a wedding consultant.

Final conclusion on getting married under Sharia law

Getting married is a huge step in someone’s life, and we wish you the very best in quite complicated procedural work for marriage in Oman. As a Muslim expat in Oman or anywhere else within the GCC exchanging the vows with non-Muslim, Seychelles, Georgia or online ways will make your big day unforgettable.

Tips for Oman expats before moving to Canada – when online wedding is impossible

For a variety of reasons, many Oman expats seeking a better quality of life choose to immigrate to Canada. The majority of the population lives near the US border and has a better quality of life.

In this article, we will tell you about the option to get married legally when online marriage is impossible in Canada.

Canadian law about online marriage 

Before 2015, Canada recognized virtual weddings where one or both spouses were not physically present for immigration purposes. The only stipulation was that the marriage is legal in the country in question.

The Canadian government, on the other hand, no longer recognizes this. The restriction on internet marriage was put in place primarily to protect women from being vulnerable in immigration situations.

How can Oman expats get legal wedding certificates?

Expats from Oman who want a legitimate wedding certificate should be married in the Seychelles or Georgia. Both countries’ requirements are simple, and the process is straightforward.

  • Couples’ birth certificates 
  • Copies of both partners’ passports

Best way to marry for Oman expats moving to Canada

If you believe your situation makes it difficult to marry in GCC countries, Georgia and Seychelles are the best options.

In both of these countries, civil marriage is not restricted based on nationality or religious beliefs. The marriage certificates are also valid internationally.

Wedding in Abu Dhabi for Oman couples

Wedding preparation may be a stressful process, and keeping track of the details can be challenging. If you choose a wedding planner, however, you can focus on other things while your wedding planners organize your dream wedding in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and across the UAE.

Marriage procedure in Abu Dhabi

In November 2021, the Abu Dhabi government established a new secular family law that allows non-Muslims (non-residents and foreigners) to marry legally. The Abu Dhabi court administration accepts marriage applications from people from other nations. The court assigns a wedding day to the couple when they will appear in court and sign the marriage license. On the same day, the couple receives a stamped registered marriage certificate from the court.

Required documents for Oman couples

The following documents must be submitted:

  • a completed and signed marriage application form
  • a copy of passport, or Emirates ID (of both parties)
  • proof of no record of existing marriage (for both parties)
  • marriage agreement (optional).

To conclude about your Abu Dhabi wedding

Abu Dhabi has made it to the top not only as the safest city on the planet but also as a contemporary, liberal, cosmopolitan city that permits young people to marry without fear of diplomatic or social repercussions.

However, the new regulation is only applicable to non-Muslims and countries that do not observe Sharia law. With that said, it is always advisable to speak with a wedding agency that can assist you in the proper manner if you do not want to take any chances with the validity of your wedding documents.
