Tajik Authorities Introduce Limits on Marriages with Foreigners

Posted by Info on 27/01/2011

The Lower Chamber of the Tajik parliament introduced pertaining amendments to the legislation at a session on 26 January 2011.

Marriages with foreigners are permitted only in case when the foreign spouse has lived in Tajikistan for at least one year. Also, the foreign spouses must procure housing for their Tajik spouses in Tajikistan. It is also obligatory for new couples to sign a marriage contract.

Some 2,000 Tajik nationals married foreigners last year, but almost 600 couples no longer live together.
These amendments are necessary because when such marriages dissolve, upbringing of and providing for children in such families become a burden on the state. We already have numerous cases of this kind.”
