Marriage Requirements and Process

Hi Guys,

Good day to all of you here!

Hope can someone help me to know exactly what are the requirements and process of marriage here at Dubai, UAE for Algerian nationality(men) and Filipino(Philippines) nationality(women). Appreciate your help. Thanks


All nationals and expatriate residents can conclude their marriages in the UAE. In the UAE, Islamic marriages are conducted according to the Sharia provisions, which apply in the following cases, regardless of nationality:

where both the groom and the bride are Muslims
where the groom is Muslim and the bride is from 'Ahl Al-Kitaab'; such as Christian.
While the law permits a Muslim man to marry a non-Muslim woman, it does not allow a Muslim woman to marry a non-Muslim man without proof of his conversion to Islam.

Polygamy is allowed as per the UAE's law. A Muslim male may have four wives, provided he offers equal sustenance and equal treatment to all. … s/marriage

I hope it solves your answer
