Legal Marriage Requirements for Puerto Rico

 Easy as 1, 2 ,3...... Come to Puerto Rico to get married without complications!

There is no waiting period, however there are blood test requirements.  You will need a birth certificate and a valid form of photo I.D. such as a driver’s license. Non U.S. citizens will need a passport.
If you have been previously married, you will need divorce papers or death certificate and if there are children, you will need birth certificates for each one.

You may use blood tests for Syphilis, Gonorrhea and Clymidia from a licensed lab in the U.S. but it must be done within 14 days of the wedding date.  A registered doctor in P.R. will need to sign and certify the blood test and medical certificate for a $100.00 fee.

Couples must then visit the Demographic Registry office to present the medical certificate for validation for a $20.00 fee plus purchase a $5.00 stamp to officiate the marriage license after ceremony.

You will receive you marriage certificate in the mail within 10 days of the wedding.
