All couples need to register their intent to marry with
the Registry Office in Nadi. The registry office is open
from 9.00am - 3.00pm Monday to Friday (closed on public
holidays). It takes about 30 minutes to complete the formalities.
Couples should allow a day on the mainland prior to traveling
to a resort away from Nadi to complete this process.
The resort wedding coordinator
will try to organize an appointment for the bride and
groom in the Nadi Registry office on the first or second
day of arrival in Fiji. This will allow for the completion
of the Fijian Registry requirements before coming to
the resort for the marriage service.
The bride and groom must bring the following items to
allow a smooth process of registering their intent to
marry in Fiji.
· Certified or original copy of their Birth
· current passport, and
· if previously married a copy of the divorce
*Please note that a copy of these documents must be
sent to the wedding coordinator of the resort where
the wedding is to be held a minimum of 3 weeks prior
to the wedding so the coordinator can forward them to
the Registry office for processing. The couple must
bring the originals with them.
|It is important to note
the bride and groom will need an original or certified
copy of their respective birth certificates, their
passports and if previously divorced, a copy of
their divorce papers.
Most Fiji resorts offer packages
for conducting the wedding ceremony at a beautiful venue
on the resort property. Typical venues are on the beach
(especially at sunset) or in a garden. Five resort have
wedding chapels which are very popular wedding venues.
