It seems that the Ikoyi Federal registry is the most common one but I hate doing anything in Lagos.

So I want to hear from successful CR1 applicants who have had luck with marriage certificates from other than Lagos.

I want to get married in Ibadan.

Chief, you should go to a registry that has a link with your spouse. I mean a place where her family will be represented fully and ensure you take as many photographs as possible as this is the only evidence that you actually had the wedding. The embassy is very particular about photographs and most times often than not ask questions on people appearing in photographs and their relationship with either you or your spouse

The only requirement is to be married where the citizen (Nigerian) lives. I got married in Port Harcourt. I know many who have recently (4 this year alone) in Ibadan. Nice place.

We got married at the registry in Abuja....and we didn't live there. Our case was a little different than most on this forum, as I moved to Nigeria with my kids (from my 1st marriage) for the first two years of our marriage.

21 day wait is not mandatory. many f us have gotten married way under that 21 day mandate.

You just have to pay more depending on where u r getting married. We filed on Thursday April 27. We wanted May 1st it was booked so we got married May 3rd. So not even 6 days.

I met my Fiance in July 2011, proposed in April 2012, denied in November 2012 witha recommendation to file a Spousal petition. So could the Lagos Gods possibly have an issue if I got married to my Fiancee 5 days after I land in Lagos on my 3rd trip to see her?

Thanks yah all for answering my previous questions. Let's just say that I'ma bit gun shy and don't want to assume anything this time around.

Nigerian Marriage Acts

Under the section of the marriage acts prelimaries to marriage at bullet 11.1 It mentions allowing 21 days from the posting of the marriage notice. However in section 7 it says one of the parties must present the notice. So it should be enough for your bride to be to have the notice posted ahead of the wedding. At least 21 days and not more than 3 months.

There is a slight chance they will say your marrige isn't properly executed if you don't do everything by the books.

I will not leave anything to chance. 21 days is not going to be the reason for visa officer to issue another unfavorable response.

Knowing what Lagos embassy is, that is not something you should sweep under the carpet. If less days worked for some, congrats.
