Marriage Process

For information on how to marry a Cuban citizen and/or petition for him or her to come to the United States for a marriage there, please refer to the documents listed below. Cuban law governs the marriages of Cuban citizens and foreigners. The U.S. Embassy recommends contacting a lawyer in Cuba to obtain the most accurate information on marriage requirements in Cuba.
