Moreover, couples need to contact their respective embassies to find all the necessary information under the Foreign Marriage Act. The requirements for marrying on a visit visa can vary from nationality to nationality.
REQUIREMENTS TO MARRY IN DUBAI ON A VISIT VISA
Dubai, like other Islamic countries, follows Sharia law, which allows Sharia courts to legalize marriages. Muslim visitors who are on a visiting visa are unable to apply for a sharia court marriage. A marriage certificate in Islam is essentially a contract that protects the rights of both the husband and the bride.
A non-Muslim woman may marry a Muslim man, but she must be of any book religion. Before marrying a Muslim woman, a non-Muslim man must first convert to Islam.
We strongly advise non-Muslims to seek advice from their respective embassies. They will be able to obtain all of the information they need to marry in the UAE and comply with the regulations.
