Waiting period to get married?
Posted 01 March 2009 - 09:23 PM
but i have been doing my reseach and i have been getting differnt info. about this.
I read you have to fax documents 4-6 weeks prior to your arrival to jamaica and once you get there i have read..... you have to wait 48 hours......others say 24 hours..... then i read this one:
Arriving in Jamaica 24 or 48 hours prior to your wedding day is only a formality, not a law. Providing that a Minister’s License was applied for and received on your behalf, you can get married within minutes of your arrival in Jamaica
so im guessing the last statement is true?
btw.. i live in new york , do i have to do anything when i get back home to make it legal there?

I'm assuming they would say 48 just because it gives them more time to coordinate everything with you without rushing.

With my resort we had to have all of the paperwork in a minimum of 30 days before arrival so I really don't think there would be a paperwork issue.
After you are married you will receive a temporary marriage certificate. You can use that to change your name and status on certain local things, some bank information, etc.
Your real marriage license will arrive in 3-4 months and you take that to the social security office to officially change your name and marital status with the federal government. You probably won't be able to change your drivers license until you get your real certificate.

Sundays do not count has business days and the arrival day does not count either. We have to arrive on Friday so that leaves Saturday and Monday as the two full business days. When you book your wedding online with Riu, you have to enter your arrival day. Basically it won't go through if you pick your arrival date that doesn't allow two full business days before the wedding.
