THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW, PEOPLE YOU SHOULD BE CONTACTING


LEGAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MARRIAGE IN MEXICO
All documents except tourist visas should be submitted well in advance of the wedding, since they must be translated into Spanish. Civil weddings are performed in Spanish by a judge and are legal worldwide. Next, you'll need to reserve the wedding date with the Judge’s office. Judge is the title of the head person at the Registro Civil (Civil Registry) office in San Jose del Cabo. Once the date is reserved, an application needs to be completed and submitted along with the following documents:

THIS IS WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
• Copies of tourist visas (you'll get these on the flight into San Jose del Cabo International Airport)
• Copies of birth certificates for both bride and groom.
• Copies of divorce judgments, if applicable. (It is necessary to be divorced for one year before being married in Mexico)
• Results of blood tests done in Mexico after your arrival that show your blood type and VDRL exam results.
• 4 witnesses over the age of 18 years old with photo ID.
• Copies of adoption papers or any document that justifies any change in your last names. (if applicable)

MARRYING A MEXICAN CITIZEN

When you are marrying a Mexican citizen, you must request permission from Mexican Immigration officials.

The following items are required:

• A marriage request on Mexico’s official form with an extra copy.
• A letter signed by you in which you formally petition Immigration officials for their permission to marry a Mexican national.
To accompany your letter, you need the following documents:
• Copy of your passport and birth certificate
• Copy of your Mexican Visa – FM3 or tourist visa
• Copies of your last 3 bank statements or other proof of income.
• Letter from your employer indicating your position and income.
• Two witnesses with ID.
• Receipt for payment of the official fee at a local bank.
