Why foreigner couples come to get married in Hong Kong?


How to get married in Hong Kong


There are more and more wedding couples coming from around the world to register their marriage in Hong Kong. In recent years, we have talked to hundreds of wedding couples and helped them get married in Hong Kong. Let's see some of their reasons behind their wedding plans in Hong Kong.


1. Since some of our wedding couples are living apart in different foreign countries, they are in need of getting married in a place where the marriage certificate is widely recognized internationally. This can facilitate their upcoming plans of joining their spouse.

2. In some situation, the groom and bride have different nationalities. It makes it very difficult for the wedding couple to register their marriage in either of their own countries due to the very strict local marriage requirements. In some countries, foreigners are not allowed to get married there.

3. Obviously, there will be some issues when the groom and bride have different religious beliefs. For example, we had some foreigner couples who practice Christianity and Islam respectively.  Due to the different religious background, they are not allowed to get married in their country. Since the wedding in Hong Kong is not a religious ceremony, it will be a perfect place for these couples to marry in Hong Kong.

4. In some countries, the local authority does not accept the divorce papers issued by a foreign entity. The wedding couples would have no recognizable divorce document for registering their marriage. There is no such restriction in Hong Kong and quite a number of our foreigner couples could enjoy the convenience by getting married in Hong Kong.

5. Out of our surprise, some of our wedding couples chose to get married in Hong Kong for romantic reasons! Hong Kong is well known as its diversity of people from around the world and there are so many expats living here. Some of our wedding couples actually became acquainted in Hong Kong and started falling in love right in this city, making it a very special reason for them to tie the knot in Hong Kong.

The above are some common reasons of our wedding couples to register their marriage in Hong Kong.
