Is your marriage in Cuba legal In Canada?

Recommended Posts

The birth certificate isn't mandatory. My FI does not have one anymore, he was born on an army base in Germany, so he has his Canadian Citizenship card. And that is fine.

I'm bumping this thread because I don't want to start a new one and I have a question.

 

How long does your passport have to be valid for after your departure date from Cuba. I have seen different answers all over the web, such as 1 week, 1 month and 6 months. Which one is correct. I have emailed the Cuban consulate, but have not received an answer yet.

I emailed the consulate last night and the responded today!

 

The answer I got was that Canadian passports must be valid for at least one week after the departure date. Passports from other countries where that country does not have an embassy in Havana, must be valid for at least months after the departure date.

Just an FYI, I did not get any documents before I left Cuba with respect to the wedding. So not all resorts give you this unofficial document. I waited till I got my wedding certificate in the mail and that is when I changed my name, etc...

 

As the other girls said, it was very very easy.

 

I was told that your passport should always be good for 6 months from the date of travel just to be safe, so I would suggest you get a new one if yours is less than that, just to be on the safe side, I would hate for that to cause you issues and keep you from getting to your wedding.

Mine took 3 months almost to the day from our wedding. It seems like a long time while you are waiting, but that is really pretty fast when you think about the country its coming from.
