    Hey ladies,

    I got some info regarding the amount of time you have to be in Cuba before you can get married. I've read a couple of different answers some saying 2 days, some 3.

    The Cuban Consulate in Toronto informed me that:

    "You don’t need to stay an specific amount of time for getting married in Cuba. If you both single all you need is a valid passport"

    Hope this helps some of you!

      Wow, it would have been nice if they told me that in the beginning, lol. Before all the hassle of trying to figure out when we could be married that wouldnt have to fall on a weekend. I was under the impression it had to be 3 days as well. Great Info for future brides!

          Thanks for posting this information. I am sorry if this is a stupid question, but I just want to clarify what is actually required for getting married in Cuba.

          You need:
          Valid Passports
          Birth Certificates
          My fiance is divorced so we have a copy of the divorce certificate

          What do we need to have translated?

          Thanks!

            You need to get a certified copy of his divorce certificate made here in Canada (by a notary public or lawyer). Send that to the Cuban Embassy in Toronto and they'll translate it in Spanish and certify it. I'm pretty sure it cost us $400 even, but check the total with them for sure before you send it, I had my money order made out for a little more than what they needed and they had to send it back for me to do a new one. Tho I just noticed you are located in Toronto, so maybe you can just bring it by there... that'd be much easier. Good luck!
