Marriage License Application Requirements & Instructions
To obtain a Virgin Islands Marriage License, at least 8 business days before your arrival in the Virgin Islands, you must submit your Marriage License Application, along with a money order or certified check payable to the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands for $200. (This includes the cost of the Application and the License. Each are $100.)
The bride and groom must pick up their own marriage license, in person, from the Courthouse in St. Thomas prior to the wedding day. You must bring a Photo ID to receive the license!
When filling out the form, use full, legal names (no abbreviations.) The document will be notarized by Virgin Islands court. The application must be filled out electronically, then printed and sent.
If you have been married before, you must provide Certified Copies of a Divorce or Death Certificate. This will not be returned to you, so do not send your originals. A certified copy means that a notarized seal from the courthouse that issued the divorce is on the last page of the Divorce Decree. Call the lawyer that assisted with the divorce or the Courthouse that issued the Decree to get your court certified copy.
A $200 money order or certified cashier's check, payable to the Superior Court of the V.I.
