Can we have the blood test done in US and take results to Mexico?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.  I was told by my wedding coordinator that we could have the blood tests done here in the states and have the results sent/ or brought with us. Is that true, as I have searched the internet and only found one site that said that we can do that.  Any suggestions on how to lower the cost of a legal/civil wedding?  Can we do the leg work ourselves, ex. send the copies of the passport, hire the priest/minister, translate the blood work results, have the certificates Fed Ex back to the state (which was stated $150).  Every website has different prices for each of these....blood work from (150-$250 per person, plus have the doctor look and translate the results ($200)...Yikes!!!  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Granted, our hotel has a coordinator also to do this, but it is almost a grand to do.

For some reason I think that each resort handles it differently, it was one of the reasons that FI and I decided to do a symbolic wedding versus an actual ceremony. Remember, if you have a traditional ceremony it will be in spanish, and if your guests don't speak spanish you will have to employ the use of a translator. another added cost. 

 

I think you might be at the mercy of the resort with regard to the costs. I can't see how you can lower the cost because these requirements are to be completed through the resort in order for it to be considered legal. Have you spoken with your WC about how to cut corners on cost?

Hello Jenjen0927,

As a weeding planner with more than 13 years in the area we always have done all our blood tests in Mexico.

 

However, I wanted to reconfirm your questions and we just hang up with the Justice of the Peace and they said that it is always possible to have your blood test done in the US or Canada BUT will have to had the apostille from your country and has to be translated here in Mexico which represents a lot of money to do all of that.

 

That is the reason why it is always better and cheaper to do it here in Mexico.  Blood Tests here in the area are around 250-300 per couple (or even less if we take you directly to the lab) BUT some hotels charge it per person. 

 

In case you might need any additional information, we will be happy to answer at info@yazmindelamora.com

 

Best Regards,

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
