After several weddings have been unfortunately canceled amidst the coronavirus outbreak, the UAE has taken into its consideration engaged couples who still want to get married despite the crisis and so, they launched an online wedding service!
The Justice Ministry, which is responsible for registering marriages in the country, has launched a new website that allows engaged couples to submit the documents needed to record their wedding and make it official.
All the couples have to do is set a date for an online wedding ceremony via a video link, choose a cleric from a list of officially approved marriage registrars and once all their paperwork is submitted and approved, they are announced husband and wife!
The procedure will have a religious leader confirm the identity of the couple and witnesses of course, before a marriage certificate is relayed to a specialized court for a final validation.
A contract is sent via email to a religious court by the cleric, and confirmation of the couple’s marriage certificate is sent via an SMS.
Afterwards, the cleric will email the contract to a religious court to review before copies of the approved contract are sent to the couple’s mobile phones.
The service was launched “to maintain the health of the public and that of people working in courts and to limit the presence of employees,” WAM reported.
This means you’re literally one click away from getting married. So, no excuses here!
