Does anyone have any contacts on where to get this done at a reasonable price?
Thanks in advance
Thomas Cook told me I need everything translated and apostled etc which would have cost about £200. See below for what Jazmin has told me
'Thank you for the marriage application, these are the only 3 documents you need to present, no translation, no any additional document.
1).- Valid passport (English are fine)
2).- Tourist card (are the ones that you going to get after arrival to our country at the Airport), " and please make be aware of the importance to bring this card complete (no broken because If it is not able to read then will need to come back to the airport in Cancun for a new one with extra charge)
3).- Blood test be done here at our Medical Center at the Hacienda Do±a Isabel that is at the main entrance of our 3 resorts
Note, the 4 witnesses need to present valid passport + touristic card (please make sure your card have the complete number of code on top " it is like 11 numbers behind a cod bar"'
I have checked this by googling the info and it is correct for this particular state in Mexico and other UK brides on this page have told me the same. We are having the legal ceremony. I think the requirements are slightly different though if either person has changed their name or been divorced so this may be why she has told you something different to us. Sorry I do not know any more than that.
