Birth cert......Has to be notorized

copy of drivers licence....notorized

divorce papers if any ( if you do have them, I would bring the original with you just in case..and they can copy it)

These papers have to be at the resort 6 weeks before you arrive! Hope this helps

Thanks girls... This is my main concern as well... do you need the long form birth certificate (I'm assuming this is the one with the father's name) and if so how long does it take to get this?

Yes, you do need the long form birth certificate.. it doesnt take very long, you can have it expressed to you and it will arrive within 5 business days, I had to get my son's for his passport, and I had it shipped via express, I sent the request in monday at 3pm, and It came in the mail the next day!!

If you apply online for the long form from Ontario it only takes a few weeks. But you do need all the information like mother and father's names, place of birth, hospital address, doctor's address at time of birth. I couldn't believe how much they asked for. I was born in Manitoba and all they wanted was name, date of birth and town/city. It took about a month to get a response.

Well i think basically its a different way then asking people for blood tests. Like if you are getting married in Mexico you need to take blood tests to prove you are not related and whatever else. But in Jamaica i guess with the Birth Certif they can see if you have the same father etc.....

 

another incentive for getting married in Punta Cana LOL you dont need any of that :P

I cant say enough great things about her! she is FABULOUS! got us an amazing deal and is so easy to work with. i liked that i could go in to talk to her and could put a face to a name...it seemed more personal that way and you can build a relationship.
