Application: Upon travel to Jamaica, please do not forget to bring the ORIGINAL documents with you. This is very important, or else you will not be able to get married.

Marriage Certificate: The Marriage Certificate must be applied for by the Marriage Officer and takes between 7 working days to 1 month to be processed by the Registrar Generals Department. There are however express services available. Please ask our wedding advisor for further details. If your country’s language is not English, your documents must be legalised by your Embassy which represents your Government in Jamaica. Therefore, after the original Marriage Certificate is issued by the Jamaican Government, the certified copy is sent to the Marriage Officer who forwards this with your address to your Embassy. Alternatively, you may have the original Marriage Certificate authenticated by this High Commission prior to being legalized by your respective Embassy in, for example, London (or any other location).

Important Note: All documents must be in English and be notarized photocopies. Each copy has to be stamped by the Solicitor.

Original documents MUST be taken and produced on arrival.
