Caribbean Wedding guide to getting married in St Kitts & Nevis
You must be on the Island for two days to obtain a marriage license, and you will have to produce a birth certificate or passport.
If either party was previously married, proof of divorce or the death certificate of the deceased spouse is required.
If a Catholic priest is to perform the ceremony, the couple must present a letter from their priest at home. The letter should state that the couple is known to the priest. It must further state that the priest knows the couple to be unmarried.
Likewise, if an Anglican vicar or minister of any other denomination is to perform the ceremony, a letter from the couple's vicar or minister is required stating that they are known to the vicar or minister and confirming they are unmarried.
The Ordinary marriage license costs EC$50
