How to get married in Bahrain for Filipino

| ,

Bahrain has 21,254 documented overseas Filipino domestic workers as of July 2012, making it the seventh most popular destination for Filipino domestic workers employed or rehired between 2006 and 2011. This makes it extremely common for Filipinos to meet another fellow Filipino and fall in love.

Luckily; if you belong to the same country getting married in the embassy of Philippines in Bahrain would be the best option. In this article we discuss the requirements.


Bahrain enables anybody living in the country, regardless of nationality or religion, to marry. The procedure is straightforward, but there are a few procedures that must be followed before the special day may take place.

Bahrain can fit your preferences, whether you desire a simple wedding or a lavish occasion, a religious ceremony or a civil partnership. However; with that said; it is important that if you belong to the GCC countries or the UAE you need to meet the requirement.


If you are planning to get married in Bahrain; here’s the requirements you would need.

  • Certification confirming he or she is single from the Civil Registrar of his or her locality.
  • Documents need to be authenticated by the National Statistic Office (NSO), Malacanang Office & Department of Foreign Affairs, Manila.
  • Both the employer and the sponsor have signed a letter of no objection.
  • Each has two (2) witnesses who can attest to the fact that they are both single.
  • If the child is under the age of 18, parental approval is required (if parents are in the Philippines) authenticated by Regional Trial Court, Malacanang Office, and Department of Foreign Affairs, notarized by nearest notary public.
  • The National Statistic Office (NSO), Malacanang Office, and the Department of Foreign Affairs, Manila, will authenticate the birth certificate.
  • Applicants’ passport photocopies
  • Two (2) 2X2 photographs;
  • Marriage Forms Report (available at the Embassy)
  • Joint Affidavit and Marriage License Application (form available in the Embassy)
  • Fees for Marriage at the Embassy


Getting married to another Filipino in Bahrain is not difficult. If you marry someone of a different nationality or religion, though, be prepared to confront obstacles in registration and paperwork.

While Bahrain’s rules does not prohibit a man and a woman of the same nationality from marrying, it does make it more difficult to marry if one of the partners is from another country. We also recommend that couples consult experienced wedding planners for assistance with the paperwork.
