Medical Certificate

You must provide medical certification that shows compliance with tests required for marriage in your place of residence. Be aware that this certification is only valid for 10 days, so you must say I do within this 10 day time period.

Residency requirements

Non-residents need an affidavit stating that you are not a resident of Puerto Rico and that the sole purpose of your visit is to get married. Non-US citizens must also include that you will not be staying in Puerto Rico longer than permitted. Affidavits written in the United States must be accompanied by certification of your state's county clerk. For affidavits written in Republics or Sovereign Countries, the Apostille seal of the Hague Treaty of 1961 is required.

Photo ID

You'll need to have a valid photo ID with you, which can be your passport, a state-issued ID card, a visa or a green card if arriving form the US.

Birth Certificate

In order to record your official name, please ensure you have a copy of your birth certificate.

Authentication of documents

An Internal Revenue Stamp of $20 gets your license authenticated. These are readily available inside the Demographic Registry.

Other Documents

If you have been divorced or are a widower, please bring the corresponding certificates.

Marriage certificate

Once the proper document are submitted and revised for compliance by the registrar, your marriage certificate is issued and signed. A properly identified parent must accompany couples under 21 so they can then sign the marriage certificate in the presence of the minor(s).

Certificate delivery

After the ceremony, you have 10 days in which to deliver the certificate, marriage license and all other required documents to the Demographic Registry in the locale the marriage ceremony took place.

Registrars Offices

The registrar's office should be contacted for specific rules regarding planning your destination or beach wedding in Puerto Rico. They will also provide information regarding marriage licenses and marriage certificates.
