FOR WEDDINGS

All documents must be submitted 45 days prior to the wedding date. Any license requests after this period will incur a $200 US late fee.

Please upload to your ceremony account notarized photocopies (with the notary's original ink signature and stamp) of all of the applicable documents, for both the bride and groom. (You may access this information when logged into your ceremony reservation).

  • Government-issued birth certificates; please note that passports will not be accepted in lieu of birth certificates
  • Copy of photo ID or passport
  • If either the bride or groom has been divorced, send all pages of all court-certified final divorce decrees
  • If widowed, a government-issued death certificate with related marriage certificate
  • If applicable, legal name change or legal adoption documents
  • If any original documentation is issued in a language other than English, they must be professionally translated into English and included in the documents sent to us

Using our service, you will not need to surrender your original documents. For the purpose of authenticating your personal documents, Jamaica requires notarization of copies of legal documents before they can have legal effect. To have your documents authenticated, bring them to a local notary public. He or she will make a copy of the documents and notarize the copy attesting to having seen the original.

If your state does not notarize birth certificates, please ask them to do a one-page affidavit stating your identity and notarize the affidavit.
