It is the document that proves the marriage (Nikah) between two people (husband and wife) in Pakistan. Should you need to check and scan, NADRA has developed a civil registration computerized system for local governments in Pakistan. 


Types of Marriage Certificates in Pakistan: 


  • It is sufficient to prove a marriage’s legitimacy with the Urdu Nikah Nama (which is a Muslim tradition). 

  • An Urdu and English computerized marriage certificate.


It is important to have both documents, however, the Nikah Nama not only certifies the marriage but also serves as a complete marriage contract. NADRA Marriage Certificates cannot be issued without a Nikah Nama. It is possible to use both documents as evidence of a legally registered marriage in any legal forum, but a NADRA Marriage Certificate is necessary for immigration to another country. It is not possible for NADRA to verify a Marriage Registration Certificate, but if you scan its QR code, you will see a NADRA message that it can be verified by the issuing authority.

What is Nikah Nama?

There is a legal document in Pakistan known as the nikah nama, a four-page manual document.

In the presence of a witness, the document must be signed.

The Nikah registrar also provides a copy of the nikah nama to the bride and groom.

An official stamp and signature are added to the Urdu Nikah Nama prepared by the Nikkah Khawan (Nikah Registrar) following the solemnization of the Nikah. A signed Urdu Nikah Nama contains the signatures of the bride, the groom, and the witnesses. The Nikahnama is an important part of the Islamic marriage system. It outlines the responsibilities agreed upon by the bride and groom.

NADRA Marriage Certificate: What is it?

It is a legal document for a married couple to obtain a computerized marriage certificate issued by NADRA (National Database and Registration Authority). The most important thing to keep in mind is that NADRA does not directly issue marriage certificates, so they must be issued by the official authority, such as the cantonment board or union council.


There are both Urdu and English versions of NADRA (Islamic) marriage certificates. 

You need an official Pakistani marriage certificate in order to apply for a family or spouse visa in the UK or U.S. Foreign authorities accept NADRA Marriage Registration Certificates as proof of marriage contracts. Pakistani marriage certificates are internationally recognized due to the fact that they are issued by the Pakistani government.
