If you dream about the most unforgettable wedding ... Samara with its indescribable beauty can be the perfect location.

The following is a list of requirements for civil marriage of non-residents in Costa Rica, for both the bride and groom. These papers must be presented at least one month in advance.

  • Name
  • Profession
  • Passport Numbers
  • Foreign Address
  • Birth Date
  • Place of Birth
  • Nationality
  • Father's full name
  • Mother's full maiden name
  • Parent's address
  • Original copy of Passport
  • Official copy of original divorce certified or notarized at Costa Rica's Consulate or Embassy.
  • For women, (if applicable), 300 days must have transpired from the official date of the divorce
    to be able to become married in Costa Rica. In addition, the name of the former husband is required.

Some lawyers are going to require a document which states that the bride and groom are single. If this is the case, the document must be translated into Spanish before you present it to the lawyer. Other lawyers will make your lives much simpler by drawing up a sworn statement from the bride and groom, in which they declare that they are single. The lawyer is also required to check the Civil Registry in Costa Rica to see that neither the bride nor groom has been married in Costa Rica, and then draw up another document stating that he did not see either of their names listed as previously married in Costa Rica. Two witnesses are also required to sign the necessary documents. This is no big deal, most of the hotel owners who offer wedding services will also offer their services as witnesses.
