What is IMBRA?

The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) 2005 is only applicable for US citizens. If you are not a US citizen you do not need to be concerned about IMBRA.

Before meeting in person or exchanging contact details with a foreigner via a marriage broker, US citizens must adhere to IMBRA. IMBRA is a United States federal statute that requires US citizens to complete forms that certify that they are not on the Sex Offenders Register, have never been convicted of violent crimes and that they are legally able to get married. The woman must sight his completed form and sign it prior to her being able to release her details. She must also be provided with a US Government prepared document, in her native language, that advises her of her rights once she migrates to USA.

Failure to complete the IMBRA forms when a man and woman exchange contact details (or meet) can result in US Immigration denying the couples application for a fiancé visa when they decide to marry and relocate to USA.

Any marriage or dating site that does not adhere to IMBRA regulations is not adhering to this law and may also indicate that they are not a genuine site, only concerned with money.

We abide by IMBRA law for US citizens and have set up a system to exchange contact details that makes the process easy and painless. Our process has also been legally verified. If you wish to exchange contact details please ensure you use the correct process by following the steps below:

  1. Visit the woman’s profile who you wish to exchange contact details with
  2. Scroll down and click the “Get contact details” button under her profile picture
  3. Complete and submit the form
  4. Administrators will review the request and complete a search on the Sex Offenders Register
  5. The form is then sent through to the woman
  6. The woman chooses whether to accept or decline the request. If she accepts the request her contact details (email address and optionally her phone number and skype address) will appear on her profile.
