Legal Requirements for Marriage in Grenada
Visitors to the island must be resident on the island for a minimum of three (3) working days (this excludes weekends and public holidays) before applying for a licence.
Application for a Marriage Licence is then made at the Prime Minister's Office after the necessary stamp duty and licence fees have been paid. This process takes approximately two days (and slightly longer if either partner is divorced, as documents must then be sent to The Ministry of Legal Affairs).
Documents required for Marriage in Grenada are as follows:
If one of the parties is divorced, proof of a Decree Absolute
Proof of Single Status: an affadavit, or a letter from a clergyman, lawyer, or Registry on official letterhead attesting to the fact that the parties involved have not been married previously.
If a name has been changed by Deed Poll proof is necessary
