An apostille stamp is the seal of the relevant State / Country / Commonwealth office  in accordance with the Hague Convention; it allows the stamped document to be used officially in a foreign country. The stamp refers the relevant legislation and indicates the validity of the document for international use.

All documents must have an apostille stamp otherwise are not valid

 

All documents must be sent six weeks prior to your wedding in Greece, to allow us to confirm that all paperwork is in order.

You must remain in Greece for at least one business day after your wedding, as you will need to sign your Marriage Certificate at the local town hall. Two weeks after the ceremony,  you will receive an officially signed Marriage Certificate in Greek. Please contact your local authorities and ask what they require in order to accept a Greek Marriage License in binding (for example, translation into  your language, apostille  stamp or other action in accordance with legislation).
