Marriage Requirements for St. Maarten


The marriage requirements are considerably more relaxed for Dutch Sint Maarten than French Saint Martin. However, even though marriage requests can be made as late as 14 days before the marriage, it is wiser to give yourselves two months.

The procedure, documents required, and fees for marrying on Sint Maarten can be found on the official government website,

If you are an American, the documents you submit must have an apostille stamp affixed to them.
