The Marriage Registry of Malta also provides services for Civil Weddings. Couples who opt for a Civil Wedding have to satisfy the same obligations and formalities requested for a religious marriage.
A Civil Marriage may take place at the Marriage Registry Room (photo below) or at any other public place that is accepted by the Marriage Registrar. Marriages can also take place on board Maltese registered cruise liners.
Same-Sex Civil Unions
On the 14th of April 2014 same-sex civil unions, which give the couple the same legal rights as those of a marriage, became legal in Malta. The legalities required for same-sex civil unions are the same as those for heterosexual civil weddings.
