Susan and Harry
Netherlands to Barbados
Third Country ?
November 12, 2020
We didn't see each other for four months during the lockdown and then met in the Dominican Republic in July. From August the Netherlands had the exemption rule for couples so my partner visited a couple of times. In November we got married in Barbados, something we wanted to do anyway, but would have done in the US next summer under normal circumstances. We chose Barbados because it's safe (strict with regard to Covid) and fairly easy to get married. You only need passport, birth certificate and (if you've been married before) divorce decree.
