UAE Population and Regulations

The Dubai population Demographic Census in 2019 showed that - The population of the UAE is also composed of just 15% native residents, with the remaining 85% being composed of expatriates. About 85% of the expatriate population – or 71% of the total population -- is Asian, primarily from India (accounting for 51%). There are over 200 different nationalities living in the UAE .

This can amount in a lot of couples from all over the world falling in love and wanting to cement their relationships in marriage in order to live in accordance with the country's rules and regulations.

As Propertyfinder.ae explained in 2019 The UAE follows the Sharia law, which deems cohabitation among people of opposite genders, who are not married or blood-related, as illegal.

According to Islam, marriage is considered to be a legal contract between two people (a man and a woman) aiming to safeguard the rights of both the couple and the children. For two people to get married in UAE, they first of all need to register the marriage in a Sharia court for ensuring all the legal requirements of getting married in the UAE.

Expatriates can marry in UAE, the documents needed dependent on their nationality and religion. Marrying in UAE for International couples can be complicated, especially if your home country doesn’t have an Embassy there. This takes time and usually takes up to 4 weeks.
