Hawaii weddings are recognized throughout the world. The process to obtain a marriage license is the same for US citizens or those traveling from abroad. To put it simply:
You are required to pick up the license at the Hawaii State Department of Health located at 1250 Punchbowl St, Honolulu, HI 96813. The office is open from 8am-4:00 PM, Monday - Friday, and closed state and federal holidays (NOTE: Due to Covid-19, appointments are required). If you are unable to go during business hours, you can schedule an after-hours or weekend appointment with one of the agents listed below.
Hotel Consultations (Waikiki only)
For your convenience, we do offer hotel consultations to review your wedding details ($175). If this service is added, the wedding coordinator can issue your marriage license at the same time given they will already be on location (you are still responsible for applying for the license through the link below. The $175 fee is to review the wedding details, this does not cover the State of Hawaii Marriage License fee of $65.)
Applying For the License
Please follow this link to apply for the marriage license - Marriage License Link. When physically obtaining the license, you both need to be present. The only legal documentation required is a government-issued photo ID, such as a drivers license or passport. If previously married, proof of original divorce decree or death certificate only needs to be presented
