Paying for Documentation

Each original document (document in English) must be legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK prior to departure.

The documents must also be translated and certified by this Embassy once they have been returned to you by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

By using the online payment facility below you will be able to pre-pay for the translation and certification of your documents. For a list of requirements for marriage in the Dominican Republic, click here click here.

How to pay online to legalise your documents for a wedding in the Dominican Republic:

1. From the following drop down menus, choose which original documents you need translated and certified.
NOTE: Since all documents must be translated, you should have the same number of documents as above.

2. From the following drop down menus, choose which translated documents you will send to us for certification.

IMPORTANT: If you have used a commercial translator to translate you documents into Spanish, they will still need to be certified by us. If you have sent your documents to us for translation using step 1 you do not need to select an option from these menus

3. If you have already married in the Dominican Republic and wish to translate and certify you marriage certificate please select this option from the following drop down menu.

Once your payment has been authorised, please make a note of the confirmation ID number and print the payment status page. You must send the confirmation number along with your documents when you post your documents to us for processing and use it if you need to contact us with a question about your documents.
Documents should be posted to the address below along with a pre-paid Recorded/Special delivery envelope. We strongly recommend you send your documents by Recorded/Special delivery as the Embassy cannot be held liable for any document lost in the post:
