Visitor Marriage License

The Visitor Marriage License is a support service that officially clears a marriage in the tri-island nation of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. It is generally issued to foreigners visiting Grenada for the purpose of getting married.

Service Information

The Visitor Marriage License form is generally submitted by foreign visitors who plan on getting married in the tri-island nation of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Grenadians may also avail this service under special circumstances, though it is not encouraged.

The form is processed through the Division of Home Affairs under the Ministry of National Security. Without the approved license, no local Marriage Officer will be authorized to conduct or solemnize the marriage.

The approval process usually takes two to three days; this can be further expedited under special circumstances. If either party is divorced the process may take longer, as documents are reviewed by the Ministry of Legal Affairs.
