Legal Marriage Requirements

If you are planning a symbolic ceremony, you will need valid passports and tourist cards. You will also need to arrive 3 business days in advance of the ceremony. Blood tests and additional paperwork will not be necessary. If you are planning a legal wedding to a Mexican citizen, additional requirements may be involved. Contact your wedding coordinator for more details. Same-sex legal ceremonies are accepted.

  • Arrive 3 business days in advance at the resort
  • Valid passports
  • Tourist permits (cards received upon entrance to Mexico)
  • Non-Marriage Certificate: This certifies that you have not been previously married in the state of Quintana Roo. It takes about 2 weeks to process this certificate. Your wedding coordinator will handle this process 3 weeks in advance of your wedding to avoid any delay. Cost of certificate: $25 USD.
  • Blood tests: The blood tests can be done at the resort. Please work with your wedding coordinator to arrange this. Cost of the blood test: $100 USD per couple.
  • Marriage Application form: Your wedding coordinator will send you this form to complete 15 days prior to the wedding.

Witnesses: You will need to have 4 witnesses present at the legal ceremony and they must have valid passports and tourist permits (FMT). They must also arrive in Cozumel at least 3 business days prior to the wedding. Witnesses can be provided for a tip of $10 USD.
