FOR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CITIZENS:

Actually there are two different options available to you!!!!
Please find both of them below (you will need to select the one that works for you)

OPTION 1 (DOCUMENTS TO BE TAKEN ONLY FROM USA):

  • FULL BIRTH CERTIFICATES (with both parents names inside) with an APOSTILLE stamp, translated into Greek
  • SINGLE STATUS LETTER or LETTER OF NO IMPEDIMENT (one for each of you) with an APOSTILLE stamp, translated into Greek. “Single Status” is a document issued from your local Registrar and insures that you are free to get married.
  • MARRIAGE LICENSE with APOSTILLE (one license covers both of you), that is valid for a wedding outside of the state, translated in Greek
  • AFFIDAVIT of SINGLE STATUS (no translation and no apostille  is required) We will email to you this form for completion – it must be stamped from the Registrar’s office
  • DIVORCE CERTIFICATE (if you have been married previously)
  • Death Certificate, Deed Poll Certificate or Adoption Certificate (if appropriate) PHOTOCOPIES of your PASSPORTS

OPTION 2 (YOU WILL PASS BY IN PERSON TO THE USA EMBASSY IN ATHENS):

From the USA Embassy in Athens you will take in person an Affidavit of Marital Status to cover both the bride and groom INSTEAD of the Marriage License and Single Status letters as mentioned in Option 1 (above).

  • FULL BIRTH CERTIFICATES (with both parents names inside) with an APOSTILLE stamp, translated into Greek
  • DIVORCE CERTIFICATE (if you have been married previously)
