The procedure will see a cleric confirm the identity of the couple and witnesses.

The UAE has launched an online marriage service that allows couples to wed amid restrictions on movement imposed to counter the coronavirus. The justice ministry said on Sunday that citizens and residents can set a date for an online wedding ceremony conducted via video link with a cleric after their paperwork is submitted and approved - also online, according to Wam.

The procedure will see a cleric confirm the identity of the couple and witnesses, before a marriage certificate is relayed to a specialised court for validation.
