How can an Indian citizen get married in Italy

If you are wondering how can an Indian get married in Italy, we are the planner you are looking for!

Since this is one of the most discussed topics around Indians getting married in Italy, today we want to explain the actual situation of Indians getting married in Italy.

In Italy, the Indian Consulate inside the Embassy does not release the so-called Marriage Nulla Osta.

They release a document that states that the spouse is not married.

This is a significant problem since most of the town hall accepts only the document in which the caption “Nulla Osta” is written.

There are only two ways to obtain it:

  1. Go to the Municipality of birth of the Indian spouse and request a document stating that the person is eligible to get married. The paper must then be translated and legalized. If it is written in Hindi, it must first be translated into English and then Italian. Once this is done, it must be legalized at the Italian Consulate in India. This procedure is complete and may take time much time.
  2. The best option is to use the service of your wedding planner, who will book an appointment with the competent Indian Consulate in Italy (Milan or Rome) to request the free marital status certificate, the so-called Bachelorhood Certificate. Since they won’t issue the so-called nulla osta, the town hall where you want to get married will issue a refusal to proceed with your wedding. We will then appeal the competent Court booking an appointment, and you will need to attend the hearing in person before the Judge. 

Since the judges already know that the Indian Consulate does not issue the nulla osta, they will not make it difficult to obtain a sentence that will oblige the town hall to celebrate your wedding.

With the sentence of the Judge, your wedding planner must inquire again about the Municipality which refused your wedding so the wedding ceremony can finally be performed!
