How to Get a Marriage License for your Maui Wedding

Getting a marriage license in Maui can be a very easy experience if you make sure you have the proper information. 

Marriage licensing on the island of Maui is conducted by authorized agents contracted by the state. You must contact these agents prior to arrival to schedule an appointment and complete your marriage license paperwork as there is not a physical office exclusively for marriage licensing.

How to Apply for a Marriage License: What you need. 

  • The prospective bride and groom must appear together in person before a marriage license agent to apply for a marriage license. Proxies are not allowed.
  • The prospective bride and groom should be prepared to provide the necessary proof of age and present any required written consents and approvals. All of the necessary documents should be obtained prior to applying for a marriage license.
  • The prospective bride and groom must prepare an official application and file the application in person with the marriage license agent. Applications are provided by the marriage license agent or may be downloaded from this site (see below). The application will not be accepted if sent by either postal mail or e-mail.
  • Upon approval, a marriage license is issued at the time the application is made.
  • The marriage license costs $60.00, payable in cash at the time the application is made.
  • The marriage license is good only in, but is valid throughout, the State of Hawaii.
