LEGAL PROCEDURES

Marriage Legalization

For those interested in getting married in Cuba, as long as they are foreigners.

The foreign side:

  • Birth certificate
  • Bachelorhood or spinsterhood certificate (The document expired six months after being issued) 
  • Divorce certificate for divorcees 
  • For widow or widowers, the late spouse's death certificate
  • All documents must be translated into Spanish and properly certified by the Cuban consulate in the country where they were issued 
  • If they were issued in a country where there isn't any Cuban consulate, those documents must be certified in a third country -to be chosen by the parties- that harbors a Cuban consular office.

The Cuban side:

  • Identification card
  • Divorce certificate for divorcees
  • For widow or widowers, the late spouse's death certificate.

For both the bride and the groom, regardless of their citizenships:

  • Medical certification that determines whether the bride is pregnant as long as her divorce certificate hasn't been issued 301 days ago.

Marriage legalization act:

The moment to make the request is determined, in line with the would-be spouses' interest, once the authorization has been granted by Cuba's Ministry of Justice.

The bride and the groom must put in an appearance, accompanied by two adult witnesses who must not be relatives to the would-be spouses and who are free to choose their own garments for the occasion.

If so requested by the spouses, the ceremony could take place in a location other than the International Consulting Office.

Delivery of Certificates:

Two certificates will be handed over, one of them duly legalized by the Republic of Cuba's Ministry of Foreign Affairs for further legal use overseas. The second one will be granted for further legal use in Cuba's national territory.
