Has any of this information changed regarding documentation required? We have been getting different information from various sources and have not heard back from the Cuban Embassy.
We are both Canadian citizens and neither has been married before.
Can anyone help us out?

My fiance is divorced, so we had to get his divorce certificate translated to Spanish and legalized. Thankfully we have it all taken care of now, so we don't have to worry about it later on.
I found it hard to get a hold of anyone at the Cuban Embassy in Montreal (which is the one we had to deal with). They kept calling and emailing in French which was pretty frustrating. Hope this helps!

You will need to complete a package from your resort wedding coordinator and fax it there three weeks before the wedding. Your coordinator will ensure that this is all done.
it really is crazy easy!
