Are Jamaican marriages legal in the U.S.A.?
The answer is Yes!
Every country in the world has a marriage act that governs the institution of marriage which is legal and binding across all nations, providing the parties are in possession of a signed, witnessed, and registered marriage title.
That title is applied through the country in which the marriage took place and bears the seal of the country.
Jamaica is no exception.
The marriages performed here are legal and binding in the United States and other nations across the globe.
So whether you are a resident of Jamaica, or a visitor from another country wishing to get married in Jamaica, there are certain procedures that should be undertaken before the vows can be taken.
Persons coming to the island to get married should be in the country one day before the wedding to facilitate the necessary paperwork.
For marriages to be legal here in Jamaica, both parties must sit with the marriage officer, presenting him or her with the following documents before the marriage takes place.
