Recognition of Foreign Marriages/ Divorces
In order for a marriage contracted outside the UAE to be recognized, the marriage certificate should be legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the country in which the marriage took place, and then attested by the UAE embassy in that country. Further attestations should take place at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the UAE.
The above information might not apply if both parties are non-muslim. Starting from the 1st of February 2023, UAE issued specific family law to be applied between non-muslim expatriate residents in case none of them wanted to apply his/her home country's law in the UAE.
