Getting married in Zanzibar

Here are some tips on how to go about this:

The hotel can arrange to have the Registrar come out and marry you on the spot.

Or you can go the Registry Office in the Zanzibar Stone Town and have the legal part of the marriage done there.

The parties to the marriage are supposed to stay in Zanzibar for at least two weeks before the marriage.

You should check that marriage in Zanzibar is legally recognized in your country of nationality: it is recognized in the United Kingdom.
