If you are signing the Acknowledgement in the U.S. Embassy in Yerevan

If you are signing the Acknowledgement in the U.S. embassy in YerevanAn Armenian citizen can also complete a form (in English and Armenian) stating that he/she is legally free to marry, and have it authenticated at the U.S. Embassy in Yerevan. A Consular Officer will notarize this form. No Hague apostille is required. The embassy fee is USD 50 or the equivalent in Armenian dram, payable at the Consular Section.

Application forms should only be signed at the Consular Section, in front of the adjudicating officer. Application forms are also available at the Consular Section and may be completed there.

After the forms are notarized, they must be presented to the Consular Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for authentication. The Ministry is located on 3/8 Vazgen Sargsyan Street. The marriage must then be registered by the Civil Acts Registration Agency (also known as ZAGS) at the Ministry of Justice. When going to the Civil Acts Registration Agency, the Armenian spouse must submit a similar document from his/her local Civil Acts Registration Agency office stating that he/she is free to marry. An official translation of the American's passport is also required.
