The following are the requirements for obtaining a marriage licence in the Turks and Caicos:
A blood test is not necessary. Any documents not in English must be translated and notarized by the applicable consulate.
The licence must be obtained from the Registrar Office before the ceremony can take place. If you have any questions, call the Registrar Office in Providenciales for more information.
The marriage ceremony can be conducted by a Minister or Justice of the Peace (the Marriage Officer), at a place of your choosing (whether in a local church, hotel or resort, private vacation villa, or right on one of our many beautiful beaches).
For those of the Christian faith, there's a wide range of local pastors who can officiate, covering most common denominations. For those of the Jewish faith, a local branch of Chabad Lubavitch hosts a visiting rabbi.
To obtain a copy of your marriage certificate, you will need to inform your marriage officer and complete the necessary forms. A copy will then be sent to your home address.
There is no provision for marriages to be registered in the persons' home country, as records are kept in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
