Marriage License Information


For any person to lawfully marry in the State of Hawaii, a license for that purpose must be obtained from an authorized agent. Once the license has been issued, there is no waiting period before the marriage can take place. No blood tests are needed, and no witnesses are required.

A marriage license and marriage certificate are different documents. The marriage license permits a marriage to take place. The marriage certificate indicates that a legal marriage has been performed.​

Who is eligible to apply for a Wedding License in Hawaii?

  • In applying for a marriage license, both the prospective groom and bride must appear in person before a marriage license agent.
