    Hi Kat,

     

    It's a standard part of a civil (legal) wedding ceremony in Mexico. It's to test for STDs.

      Hello Kat,

       

      Mexico is one of the few countries that requires the Prenuptial Lab Tests and Medical Certificate, specifically for blood type H.I.V and S.T.D (sexual diseases such syphilis or gonorrhea)  with results in 24 hours that in some labs might be a little bit more expensive.   The results are valid for fifteen days.

       

      Most of the resorts offer medical services for 24 hours so they normally are doing the lab tests, otherwise your external wedding planner will take you to the reliable labs in Playa del Carmen or will send them to your hotel's room.

       

      For a Prenuptial Blood Test you can have breakfast before or even drink a glass of wine or a "few" beers the night before. 

       

      Is important to mention that in case you or your FI have a disease the Justice of the Peace will not marry you even if you want to or are agreed.

       

      Hope the above helps!

       

      Happy planning!
