Marriage License in Honolulu, Hawaii

To get married in Hawaii, a Marriage License must be received from the Department of Health before the Wedding. No blood tests (or divorce records) are required, only valid photo ID's and $60 cash (or $65 online payment).*

*Important: If you are under 19 years old, please bring your Birth Certificate and a Photo ID as proof of legal age to marry. If you have been divorced less than two months, please bring your Divorce decree.

Single persons 18 years of age and above may marry without parental consent. Wedding packages do not include a Marriage License, which can only be obtained by the Bride & Groom by appearing in person together at the Dept. of Health.

No assistance is necessary to get a Marriage License, just a simple one-page Application form (which only the Bride & Groom know the answers).

Now you can expedite your application process and apply for your Marriage License online at:

Please take note of three important terms and their meanings:
- Marriage License Application: A one-page form you must fill out and bring to the Department of Health (or Health Dept. Agent), along with your ID's and $60.00 processing fee (cash only), to receive your Marriage License.
- Marriage License: The Dept. of Health will give you a MARRIAGE LICENSE, which you need in order to get married in Hawaii. Bring that with you for the Minister to sign at your Wedding.

If you should lose your Marriage License before the wedding (or forget to apply for one) you will need to apply for a new Marriage License. Be sure to sign the date of the wedding as no earlier than the date you received your Marriage License. Ceremonies held before the date of the Marriage License are not recognized.
