Canadian Birth Certificate

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know for sure if Canadians have to get the long form of our birth certificate to get maried in Jamaica? I've read a few places that they have to have your parents information which is only included on the long form.

Thanks!

Hi Jamie

 

To answer your question regarding the marriage requirments in Jamaica, you do indeed need the long form of your birth certificate. In order to get married in Jamaica you must provide proof of citizenship in the form of a certified copy of your birth certificate which includes your father's name. Unfortunately the wallet sized birth certificates most people carry around don't have their father's names on them at all. On a positive note, when getting married in Jamaica you DO NOT need to get a blood test as you would if you were marrying in Mexico or many other parts of the Caribbean. So while it may be a little more of a hassle to get your long form birth certificate just remember the other hassles you have avoided by choosing the location you did! :)

Hope this helps, goodluck with everything.

My hubby and I were married in Jamaica this past april and DID NOT need a long form of our birth certificates (I've never heard of that actually) all we needed were the notarized copies of our wallet sized birth certificates along with notarized copies of our passports.  All that extra work is not needed!!  We've since recieved our official marriage certificate and it's all legal here! :)

We are getting married at Couples Sans Souci, and I did not need the long form. Just the wallet size was okay.  My documents have already been sent and approved.

 

I would contact the resort you are getting married at and confirm with them!

According to our resort we either needed to get our passports notarized by a notary public or have certified bith certificate (the long form).  I think its a bit different each place so check with the resort you are marrying at.

    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
