How can i get a copy of my marriage certificate?




Copy of my marriage certificate

Question:

Hi there, I was married in Ocho Rios in 2004.
I need a copy of my marriage certificate.

I lost the original when I moved. What are the steps I need to do to obtain a copy of one and how long will it take?

Do you know the cost?

Thank You.

(I live in Toronto Canada)

Hi there,

I didn't get your name, but thanks for your question.

The Registrar General's Department (RGD) allows you to request another copy online- a refreshing improvement to the old bureaucratic process of the past.

However, in addition to other basic information, you need to ensure you have the following to do so:


  • Place of Marriage
  • Date of Marriage
  • Parties' Names &
  • Marriage Officer's Name


Moreover, they will send it to you wherever you are in the world!

Here is the link to make the request.
It is fairly straightforward.

If you forget the marriage officer's, you can use a tool they have to request the marriage officer's name.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Marriage Officer's name
by: Anonymous

We are in the same boat as the above lady. We do not know the marriage officers name, but think we might know his last name but not 100% sure. It was a gentleman the Sans Souci resort provided. We do not see on the link you provided where we can inquire about that. Also, there is no mention of fees when we bring up the application link.

Thanks in advance!
