A Belize wedding license is internationally recognized! You have direct contact with your officiant from the moment you book with us to ensure your Belize wedding license is obtained and ready in time for your ceremony.

To obtain a special license to get married in Belize, here’s what you need to do:

  • Both parties must be in the country three (3) workdays prior to filing the petition of the license. All documents required must be original documents, but certified copies with lifted seal of the original documents are acceptable.
  • For those who aren’t in the country for three days, it is possible to apply for a Special Belize Wedding License (for an additional fee)
  • Application forms will be emailed to you from your officiant or coordinator such as Dulce Belize Weddings
  • Completed forms along with the items in the following list must be presented to General Registry (officiant will do this on your behalf).

Your Belize wedding will be conducted by a Justice of the Peace, and you will leave Belize with an official marriage license. After the documents are formally submitted to the Belize Marriage Registry, they will be mailed to you.

If neither party has been previously married, this is what you need to submit to the Belize Marriage Registry:

  • Fully completed marriage license application form notarized by Justice of the Peace (we will take care of this)
  • Photocopy of your passport showing your profile picture in color and date of arrival in Belize (we will meet with you to get this)

If either party has been previously married, this is what you need to submit to the Belize Marriage Registry:

  • Fully completed marriage license application form notarized by Justice of the Peace (we will take care of this)
  • Photocopy of your passport showing your profile picture in color and date of arrival in Belize (we meet with you to get this)
  • A copy of original divorce decree

If either party is a widow or widower, this is what you need to submit to the Belize Marriage Registry:

  • Fully completed marriage license application form notarized by Justice of the Peace (officiant will take care of this)
  • Photocopy of your passport showing your profile picture in color and date of arrival in Belize (we will meet you to get this)
  • A copy of original death certificate

No matter what your situation, there’s no need to stress the paperwork for your Belize Wedding! Dulce Belize Weddings will help you every step of the way with the processing of your marriage licence.
