How to Get Married in the Dominican Republic
Weddings in the Dominican Republic are easy to arrange, thanks to local laws. Most larger hotels and resorts have on-site wedding coordinators to help with every detail from paperwork to photography; coordinators need at least 15 days notice (but prefer at least three months to work out all the special details.)
Fees: US$60-$100, depending on the judge
Applications and/or Documents Required: Bring along original copies of the following (and be sure pack these in your hand luggage, never in your checked bags): passport, original birth certificate, single status affidavit in Spanish, divorce act in Spanish (if applicable). The Dominican Republic consulate nearest your hometown can prepare the single status or divorce act papers; call 888-374-6361 for the location of your nearest consulate.
Waiting Period: There is no waiting period or minimum stay.
Witnesses: You will need two witnesses. If you provide witnesses, they will each need to bring their passport. Hotels can also provide witnesses.
Blood Test: No blood test is required.
