    • If divorced or widowed, it must be proven that it is has been one year since the official dissolution of last marriage or since the death of previous spouse. This requires certified copies of the divorce decree or a certified death certificate.
  • Residency Requirements: 4 business days from date of arrival in the country

  • Waiting Period: Plan to be in the country at least five days before your ceremony to take care of translation of documents
