Getting Married in Panama?

Recommended Posts




So new here, looking for some help!!


My Fiancé and I are headed to Panama in a few days to visit some of his family who live on the Royal Decameron Resort. Now we were considering a Panama wedding, but now I've come across some information regarding blood tests and physicals that need to be performed there, within one week of the wedding!


If anyone has been married there, or has some more information I would so greatly appreciate it!

Hi Olivia,


The legal requirements to have a civil ceremony in Panama are quite rigirous!! I have listed them below:


        Copy of Bride and Groomâ€s birth certificate (in long form).

·         Copy of Bride and Groomâ€s passport (all pages)      

·         Certificate of single status

·          Application for a Civil Marriage Form. You will both have to fill this out separately. You will need to fill out the Spanish document, and have it translated

In destination, you will need to provide the following:

·         Medical Certificate - issued by a Panamanian doctor within 15 days prior of wedding; the general medical examination must include the following lab tests: urinalysis, AIDS, blood test, V.D.R.L.

·         Existing passports.

·         Immigration Status / Tourist Card

·          2 witnesses who are fluent in Spanish. Could be 2 people working on site (at the Hotel) and they have to provide a copy of their ID.


Another option for you would be to get married at home and have a symbolic ceremony in Panama! This is often the route that destination wedding brides go as it tends to be the easiest :)


Happy Planning!
