I'm being told by the resort (catalonia Riviera Maya/Yucatan Beach) that we need the long version of our Birth certificates in English and Spanish stamped by an Appostille here in Canada before we come to get married in the Mayan Riviera. A friend of mine is also gettign married in the Mayan at one of the Riu's and said she doesnt need these?

can someone let me know if these are required especially if anyone has been married at the Catalonia Riviera Maya/Yucatan Beach?

 

Thanks so much!!

We are getting married in the RM and are required to bring Long versions of our birth certificates. We do not need to have anythng apostled.

 

FI's BF got married last year in Tulum and they didn't even need the long version - they just had the wallet sized cards and passports.

Okay I was born in Canada and I was told that I need the long version. I had to send it to get authenticated then send it to the Canadian Mexican consulate so they can aprove of it. They added a little paper to the bottom of the long form BC. I still need to get in translated into spanish waiting until I get FI before doing this part. Appostille is only done to an American Birth Cert. (I'm doing that for the FI now) I have all the numbers and address for Canada Authenticators (I think thats how you would call it and the Mexican Consulate at home. I will post it later tonight or pm so I can send you the info. I did have a long form BC but if you need one I have that link on the home computer too. I can forward too later if you need it.

I find it amusing that every hotel in RM has a different policy. Makes you wonder if they really need it at all!

I'm still so confused about this! My wc at Iberostar Paraiso Beach told me that we need the long version of our birth certificates and our passports. She said that we didn't need to translate the certificates, which surprised me. Can anyone else staying that the Iberstar confirm this? She's making me paranoid! lol

We do quite a few civil weddings in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and Playa is located in the county of Solidaridad which represents the Riviera Maya. In our county, the only time you need to have your birth certificate apostiled is when you are going to be putting your parents' name on your Mexican wedding certificate. Another note is that although Cancun and Tulum are often linked as part of the Riviera Maya, they are actually in different counties so they may have different requirements regarding the certification of birth certificates. One last thought (and this is purely speculation) it is possible the resorts are being cautious by requiring that birth certificates are apostiled just in case. Hope this helps.

 

Take care and good luck with your weddings.

Thanks so much you guys! I am waiting for the WC to get back to me about this too. I think that maybe they are being overly cautious and that's why they're asking for it! I'll see what she says and also check with those links to see what they see too! Thanks again...

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
