Marriage License Information

  • Both parties must be in The Bahamas at the time of the application.
  • You must be in the Bahamas for 24 hours before you can apply for your marriage license. The licensing office is closed on weekends and Bahamian Holidays so couples wishing to be married on the weekend must arrive in the Bahamas no later than the Thursd ay before their wedding if they are to meet the 24-hour residency requirement.
  • No blood test is necessary.
  • If you have never been married before, Affidavits of Marital Status will be required. These are obtained locally and our consultant will assist you in getting them.
  • If you have been divorced or widowed, original or court-certified divorce papers or death certificate must be presented in order for you to get your license. Divorce papers and death certificates are kept by the licensing office and are not returned.
