Applying for a Marriage License (Hawaii Department of Health)

Honolulu Wedding Group


Applying for a marriage license is easy.

Unfortunately, we cannot do this for you because it is a legal matter.


Step 1

You must go to the Department of Health website and click start application. There is a $65 fee to apply.;jsessionid=A829C4E192CA0015A6C2FF02F38491B8.app1

Follow the simple instructions to complete the application. While applying they will ask for the name of the performer. Skip this part and continue with the application. Once your wedding is finished your wedding officiant will fill in that information for you.


Step 2

After the online payment click “continue” to the payment receipt to obtain your locator ID#. You can use the locator ID number to make an appointment with a marriage agent. Upon arrival in Hawaii you must stop at the Hawaii Department of Health office located at 1250 Punchbowl St. Honolulu, HI 96813

They are open Monday through Friday 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM.  You must both be present to pick up your marriage certificate. Bring a photo ID like your passport or driver’s license. Meet with your marriage agent and pick up your marriage certificate. They will give you a pink paper as your copy.


Step 3

Bring the marriage certificate with you to the wedding ceremony on your wedding day. Once your wedding ceremony is finished, your wedding officiant will electronically file for you to finalize the union. This is when they will enter their name as your performer. You will receive your official certificate in the mail to the address you provided when you filled out the application.


Please note, your marriage certificate is good for 30 days from the date it is issued to you. Please do not pick up your marriage certificate 30 days before your wedding date. This will not leave any time to electronically file after the wedding. We recommend anytime within two weeks before your wedding date to pick up your certificate.


That’s it! Congratulations you are married!

Aloha Ever After!
