New Regulations Regarding Foreigners Marrying in SA
If you are considering getting married in South Africa and are not a South African citizen then the new Department of Home Affairs regulations will apply to you.
As of late 2016 the new regulations regarding the marraige of foreigners in SA came into effect. Essentially this means that foreigners cannot be legally married in SA and no marriage certificate will be issued by the Department of Home Affairs.
Luxury Safari Weddings recommends that couples considering a wedding in the bush should complete the legalities in their home country and we will conduct the ceremony as though you were getting married for the first time in your dream location.
So we suggest that just before you leave for South Africa or just after you return home you should then arrange a civil ceremony to make your union legal.
We can unite your hearts and souls in matrimony but unfortunately no longer can we offer a legal union.
