Marriage in Puerto Rico - Requirements

Residency requirements
Although you don't need to be a resident, you must present 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 for more than what is allowed.

Marriage license
A marriage license is required and must be requested in writing. Both the bride and groom must appear in person at the time of applying for the license.

Laboratory tests
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.

Authentication of documents
A quick visit to the Demographic Registry and $20 worth of license stamps gets your license authenticated. You are now ready to say I do to your better half.
Identifications
Don’t forget to bring valid photo identification, passport or state issued ID.

Birth Certificate
In order to record your official name, please bring a copy of your birth certificate.

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

Religious and Civil ceremonies
For your marriage to be legal, it must be performed either by a registered minister, judge or authorized clergyman.

Where to obtain a marriage license
All marriage licenses in Puerto Rico are expedited by the Demographic Registry, and that actually eliminates worry since it’s a one-stop shop. You can contact them by phone or mail regarding any doubts you may have on obtaining your marriage license or certificate.
