The Odyssey of wedding  translations!

 

Below you will read an email from a groom who tried to get his papers translated and authenticated in a source other for a Greek embassy, consultant or the Ministry of Foreign affairs in Athens. For privacy reasons we removed the names of the translators who "helped" him.

 

 As you may know, people who work at embassies are typically moody, rude individuals who seem to care less about their job.  When I called the Chicago, Illinois consulate, whose territory includes Kansas and Missouri (my hometown), their basic answer to any question about marriage in Greece is to ask for my fax number so they can send a form (see attached).  Since they do not translate documents, I looked on the web for translators.  I found a website and called the company.  They said they only handle.  This is where I contacted .l and .., whose office is located ............  They do translations for companies as well as private individuals seeking marriage in foreign countries.  The price structure is basically the same everywhere in the states...$65 dollars a document (approx. 52 Euros). I had six documents.

In hindsight, I should have just sent them to you.  The price you quoted me was about the same, but money wasn't the issue.  I just was a little hesitant at the time to send important documents across the ocean as opposed to just sending them a few hundred kilometers away.

Attached to this email is my letter to them that I sent with my documents, asking for certification from the Greek Embassy, per your instructions.

This is when I was told that it wasn't necessary for them to carry my documents to the Embassy for the stamps, and that leaves us where we are at now.  I must of asked at least three times whether the services they provided would be satisfactory to get married in Greece and they assured me that they would, and that they have done this many times with other couples.

I don't believe they are lying, but that they have been misled.  As I stated earlier, I got the same answer from other consulate employees in Houston, Texas and California.  I called the Washington, D.C. office, which is the main consulate, and they gave me the runaround.  I couldn't get anybody there to answer my questions yesterday.

 
OUR COMMENTS:

Many times our Embassies or our Consultants and even your public services in your country  are not correctly informed or updated regarding the legal papers that are required to get married in Santorini and as a result many weddings almost get cancelled!

Please always stay in touch with your wedding planner and don't take actions with out consulting your wedding planner first!

Our client who's email you read above, not only paid money for translations that where invalid but he was also in the middle of a circle of people who had no idea of what they where talking about and they also insist that they where right and as a result, precious time, loss of money and lot's of stress was all he got!

 
 

All the legal papers that the Town Hall requires in order to issue a marriage license, must be translated and authenticated in Greek by a Greek authority only, as a Greek embassy or Consultant or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Athens, which has the jurisdiction to do so.

THE TOWN HALL DOES NOT ACCEPT TRANSLATIONS FROM OTHER SOURCES THAN THE GREEK EMBASSIES, CONSULTANTS OR THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS IN ATHENS.


In case you don't have time to do the  translations or you find difficulties, our office can handle the translations and authentications of your papers by sending them to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Athens which has the jurisdiction to do so.
If your documents are in International form, no translation is needed for the civil wedding.
Please send us an email for more information.
