Visitors can now get married in St. Barth without the delay of residence requirements. Previously, the law required a stay of one month before obtaining a legal marriage certificate. While there is now no delay of residence in order to get married on St. Barth, the couple still needs to fill out a document and submit it to the city hall in person at least 30 days before the wedding. The island has several churches, including Catholic and Anglican, where couples can arrange for a religious ceremony after filling out the appropriate paperwork.
