Hawaii Marriage License


Getting a Hawaii Marriage License is Easy!*

*Marriage License Not Needed if You're Legally Married in Your State or Country.

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 apply for your marriage license online prior to your arrival. (For the question "Name of Performer," you can leave that blank.)
  • Upon your arrival to Hawaii, you pick up the document from the Hawaii State Department of Health at 1250 Punchbowl Street, Honolulu.
  • After the event, your officiant will file the legal documentation on your behalf.
  • The state will mail your marriage certificate document to the forwarding address you listed on the application within 4 to 6 weeks. 

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. 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. 

Virtual Hotel Consultations

For your convenience, we do offer virtual hotel consultations to review your wedding details ($125). If this service is added, the wedding coordinator can also issue your marriage license during the virtual consult. (You are still responsible for applying for the license through the link below. The $125 fee is for the consultation, but 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 if the divorce or death was finalized within 30 days of applying for a marriage license.
