Before you travel: (new important information issued by Sri Lanka High Commission)
The following documents should be apostilled by your Secretary of State Office. An apostille is an authentication issued on official documents in order to ensure their international validity. It is an attachment to the document. Once you have received the apostille, the relevant documents should be legalised by the Sri Lanka High Commission by your respective Foreign Ministry in America.
Before you travel, next step:
Once you have had the required documentation certified, the next step is to have them legalised by The Sri Lanka High Commission.
You are also required to obtain a Business Visa before travel to enable you to have your wedding in Sri Lanka. The visa needs to be applied for no more than 30 days before travel and takes approx. 4 working days to process.
Guests marrying at hotels in Sri Lanka will need to send photocopies of the documents listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date of travel.
Once you have married in Sri Lanka, you must get your marriage certificate certified at the Foreign Ministry, Ministry of External Affairs in Colombo; only then will your marriage certificate be valid to submit to authorities outside of Sri Lanka.
All original documents to be taken with you.
Translation of documents
All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office or notarised by a Notary Public.
The Wedding Ceremony
In most destinations, your wedding ceremony will be conducted Monday to Friday (excluding local holidays). In some destinations, local festivals and holidays will determine available wedding dates. Generally, your wedding will take place in the grounds of the hotel unless otherwise specified. Many hotels offer wedding gazebos for extra privacy. Some hotels may offer more than one wedding per day with the first wedding taking place at around 10am with the last wedding at 4pm. The majority of our weddings are conducted by a marriage officer whose title varies depending on the resort. Where it is possible to be married by a Minister, the ceremony will be non-denominational unless otherwise stated and will be a Civil wedding.
Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples:
• Born in the US
• Have a valid US passport (with some months validity on return home)
If couples do not fulfil these requirements they must advise us. Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own.
As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements. We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them. All prices and legal requirements correct as of May 2014.
