Mexico Marriage Requirements

Many couples choose to get legally married in the U.S. at their local courthouse or church and have a symbolic or commitment ceremony for their destination wedding. Typically, guests do not know that the ceremony they are witnessing at destination weddings is symbolic (shhh!).

If you do choose to get legally married in Mexico, you will need to have the following:

  • Valid passports
  • Original and certified copy of your birth certificates
  • Tourist card or visa, which you will receive upon arrival
  • Names, ages, addresses, nationalities, and occupations of both sets of parents
  • Blood test certificate (must be done in Mexico 48 hours before marriage)
  • Four witnesses with copies of valid passports or driver’s licenses (must be 18 and cannot be biological parents)
  • Death and divorce decrees are required if applicable
