Anyone can get married in Costa Rica!

Getting married is stressful enough so when you don´t have to worry about the legality of your marriage in Costa Rica.  Here is what you need!

  • Copies of your passports
  • Dates of birth
  • Your occupations
  • Your current address
  • Names and addresses of your parents
  • Two witnesses are needed to be present at the ceremony.
  • Proof of marital status (a sworn statement if divorced or widowed

Since the 26th of May 2020, same-sex marriage has been legal so #loveislove in Costa Rica. The same conditions apply to all couples deciding to tie the knot in this fantastically romantic little corner of the world.

In Costa Rica, a civil wedding must be performed by an authorized lawyer or notary public. Many couples choose to hire a local wedding planner who can handle all the legalities and arrangements. A wedding planner can also recommend reputable lawyers and ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed correctly.

After the ceremony, the lawyer or notary public will register the marriage with the Civil Registry in Costa Rica. This process usually takes a few weeks. Once the marriage is registered, you will receive an official marriage certificate, which can be used to register the marriage in your home country if necessary.

If you need your marriage certificate for use in a country that does not speak Spanish, you may need to have it translated and obtain an apostille (a form of international certification). Your lawyer or wedding planner can assist with these additional steps to ensure that your marriage is recognized abroad.
