How you get your license


Marriage license information for the Virgin Islands “see below”. In most cases wedding planners will assist with the marriage license application process.

Marriage License Application

The marriage license application fee is $100 ($50 for application fee and $50 for the license). There is an 8 day waiting and processing period, which can be waived depending on circumstances. The application is good for 1 year. Court marriages in front of a judge are performed on weekdays by appointment and will cost around $200. Religious ceremonies should be arranged directly with church officials. If either party has been divorced, a certified copy of the divorce decree must be presented. If you are requesting a marriage license through the mail, without the help of a local wedding planner you will have to pick up the license yourself on arrival. This can only be done of regular business days.
