Marriage Requirements for French Polynesia


Residency Requirement: At least one of you must live in French Polynesia for 30 days (no fighting, now!).

Necessary Documents: Birth certificates (issued within 3 months of your wedding and translated into French), medical certificates, 1 certificate of residency, 1 copy of notarized marriage contract, customary certificates, certificates of celibacy, and publication of marriage bans in the non-resident's hometown and in the commune where the marriage will take place

Note: Assuming one of you can establish residency, we highly recommend that you contact a wedding planner who specializes in destination weddings or travel to Tahiti as early as possible to help you fulfill the requirements.

For More Info: Call the wedding coordinator at the resort where you'll be staying, or a travel agent that specializes in Tahiti or destination weddings. Tahiti Tourisme (77) GO-TAHITI,
