Bahamas Marriage License


Bahamas Marriage License is one of the legal requirements for anyone wishing to have an elopement or wedding in The Bahamas. And only a Bahamian marriage license issued by The Commonwealth of The Bahamas Government Registrar General’s Office, Marriages Department in Nassau and Paradise Island and Freeport, Grand Bahama, or at The Government Administrator's office in any of the islands is legally recognized for getting married in The Bahamas and issuance of a Bahamas marriage certificate. A Bahamas marriage license is valid for three months and is only issued once both parties are in the country, so you would have to have your destination wedding within that time.
