UK national marrying a Chilean in Chile

Post by alextrombone » Fri Jul 05, 2019 5:15 pm

Hello,

I have decided to marry my Chilean girlfriend in Chile and I was just looking for some clarification on the documents I would need. I will be entering Chile on a tourist visa and the wedding will take place there. I have read that all I would need is identification (my passport). The British Government suggests that I would need a CNI (Certificate of No Impediment), notarised and translated. However every Chilean source I have read does not mention this, and says a valid form of ID should be sufficient. Can anyone provide any clarification on this?

Many thanks.

It’s some years since I did the same thing, and all I had was my passport. Just check with registro civil, as they are the ones that will be performing the marriage.

FYI, the smile is a very important legal requirement.

the civil registery needs to determine that you are willingly getting married, and understand what you are doing.

Smiling might be a problem, but I’ll work on it!

I also got married last year (actually union civil) and they also requested me a certificate of no impendment, which my embassy wrote (also translated/certificated) me.
I think it's standard procedure with foreigns everywhere in the world.

Sounds like it may be worth getting one then.

Yes, just in case someone asks for it. Always better to have too much documentation than not enough in Chile, but only ever produce what they actually ask for!
