You will require various documentation in order to process your marriage in Zambia. Any person wishing to get married in Zambia must complete Affidavits and Notice of Marriage forms which are available from the Civic Centre in Lusaka. The completed forms must be submitted to the Local Government Administrator's Office at the Civic Centre where a Certificate of No Impediment (CNI) will be issued for production to the person who is to solemnize the marriage. Both parties will be required to produce their original birth certificates. It normally takes 3 weeks to process a CNI and costs K 50,000. There is, however, a fast-track service costing K130,000 and the CNI can be issued within 24 hours.For further information and details on getting married in Zambia please visit - http://ukinzambia.fco.gov.uk/en/help-for-british-nationals/living-in-zambia/register-birth
