How we can help
When you plan a wedding abroad, many countries require you to produce a document in which you declare that you are not already married and that nothing prevents you from entering into your intended marriage – often called a declaration of single status*.

*Confusingly, this is also referred to as an affidavit of marital eligibility, a statutory declaration of intended marriage or an affidavit of non-impediment to marry.

What is the difference between a certificate of non-impediment and a declaration of single status?
In essence, they're the same – they evidence that there is nothing (no impediment) that would prevent you getting married. The difference lies mainly in the form this evidence takes. With a certificate of non-impediment, your local registrar provides the confirmation, whilst an affidavit is a declaration made under oath by you. Which you need depends on the authorities in the country where you’re getting married, so best to check with them.
