|Marriage in Spain
From the USA Dept of State
Marriage in Spain is more complicated than in the United States. Spanish authorities may take 30 to 45 days to approve a marriage application. Policies and procedures vary from region to region. For example, Spanish law appears to permit foreigners who are not Spanish legal residents to marry in Spain. The different autonomous communities in Spain, however, interpret this law differently. Outside Madrid, it may be required that one party be a citizen or resident of Spain. For this reason, the Embassy suggests an American consult beforehand with the regional authorities of the area where the person wants to marry. In general, legal and valid marriages abroad are also legally valid in the United States. Should the parties contracting marriage have any questions about the validity of a marriage performed abroad, they should contact the Attorney General of the state or states of domicile of the parties.
