| Getting married in Jamaica
Getting married here is easy and inexpensive,
with just a 24-hour waiting period after you arrive on the island.
No blood tests are required. Most larger resorts have excellent
wedding consultants on staff who can handle all the arrangements,
from license to flowers. Contact your resort beforehand to get the
paperwork rolling. You’ll need to supply the following:
Proof of citizenship
Bring along a certified copy of your birth certificate (one with
a raised seal), which includes your father’s name. Parents’ written
consent, if one of you is under 21. Proof of divorce (if applicable).
Either a certified copy or original Certificate of Divorce is
required. Copy of Death Certificate for widow or widower. If paperwork
is not in English, you’ll need to have a notarized translated
copy of all documents and a photocopy of the original document.
TIP: You’ll probably need to fax or courier
copies of your documents to the resort, but be sure to bring along
the original copy on your trip!
