Canadians getting married in Mexico, Apostille vs. Authentication

Recommended Posts

We are from Canada and will be having a legal ceremony in Los Cabos, Mexico next year and are trying to figure out the whole apostille thing.


I found out that in Canada we don't apostille but instead have to notarize our birth certificates with a lawyer/notary.


What I'm wondering is if we also have to further "authenticate" our birth certificates, and also if we have to translate them into spanish? And if so what is the order to do this?


Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

There is a thread about this exact thing...it is quite the process...if you do a search you will find it, I think it's Canadian Brides getting married in mexico legal requirements...if you can't find it i will PM you what we had to do to get everything done...

You need to find out from your specific resort specifically what they require from you...as different resorts within Mexico have different requirements. For example some resorts don't require you to do anything whereas others (like mine), make you go through this long process. Here is the link to the thread that I started with information. I hope this helps!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
