Help! Notarized Copy Of Birth Certificates

Recommended Posts

We are getting married in April 2014 at sandals Negril. When we went to the notary to get our birth certificated copied and notarized, he said he can't copy birth certificates. Now I'm not sure what to do. I don't really want to send a certified copy to Jamaica. Any brides out there that have experienced this and how to get proper documentation to the resort in time.

Hi emme121,


I was just wondering if an option would be to purchase another birth certificate and use that one to get notarized and sent to Jamaica. I am getting married in Jamaica and I will see if I can clarify if that is an option and let you know via the forum.

Sandals was actually able to send me an affidavit for the notary to sign, since I was informed notaries can only verify signatures in documents and not actuall birth certificates

My Fiance and I are about to do the same thing - I've heard of others having this problem and this site has some options that may work if your Resort doesn't have something in place to help with this.




Basically you can type out a little paragraph below the copy or on a spearate sheet that states it is a true copy, sign that, and have that notarized. 


Hope that helps

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
