The wedding coordinator will send you the legal request form (Wedding Petition Form) to provide the following information:

  • Nationalities
  • Ages
  • Occupation & relationship for bride, groom and witnesses (Witnesses can be relatives, friends or anyone who has a passport.) 

Contact your wedding coordinator for more details.

Any fees for the above mentioned services are included in our Wedding Packages. It is the couple’s responsibility to have all the documents ready and on the island in time. Non-Refundable Government fee $300.00 US for stays of 6 nights or less has to be $400 for legal ceremony cancellation within 30 days.

Important notes:
