Costa Rica Marriage Requirements:
What will I need?:
What if I’ve been married before?:
According to worldheadquarters.com, the 300-day regulation is an archaic law, designed to ensure the bride isn’t pregnant with her previous husband’s child. If she can’t wait 300 days, she must undergo multiple pregnancy tests, and obtain a chain of official signatures.
Will I need a witness?:
To make your Costa Rica marriage valid, you’ll need two witnesses who aren’t family members to the third degree — that means no grandparents, nieces and nephews, or half-siblings. It’s best to bring friends (or invite lucky strangers!)
How long will it take for my marriage to be official?:
After your Costa Rica destination wedding, it will take about three months for the paperwork to process so your Costa Rica marriage can be valid back home. A rush option is available, for a fee.
