    Hey! We are going to Gran Bahia in Runaway Bay. We are doing a legal ceremony, it is my understanding that you have to get the Ontario long form birth certificate and send that in. I have been meaning to do this but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Are you doing a legal ceremony and if so do you happen to know anything about the legal documents we have to send ahead of time?

    The info I got from the hotel said we have to provide copies of Birth Certificates with the fathers name but Ontario birth certificates don't have this. I've emailed the wedding coordinator over a week ago but still haven't heard anything... I want to start getting everything in order in case it takes a while to get documents together!

      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
