If you are getting married to a Canadian citizen or a person who’s not Cuban:
• If you are single: Valid Passport
• If you are divorced: Valid Passport, Divorce Certificate
• If you are widower: Valid Passport, Marriage Certificate and Death Certificate
For the Marriage in Cuba, passports don’t have to be translated nor legalized.
Your name has to match in every document. If not an Affidavit of Identity is required to prove you are one and the same person.
For any document issued in foreign countries (by no Canadian authorities) you have to obtain a letter from the Consulate or Embassy of the foreign country stating that the document was issued according to the regulations of the government and it can be considered valid.
How to prepare the documents:
Take the originals to a Notary Public or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development of Canada in order to get certified copies of the documents stating that the documents are true and valid copies of the originals issued by competent authorities in the Province.
The documents have to be officially translated into Spanish. This should include a Statutory Declaration of the Translator signed by the Notary Public or an official at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development of Canada.
The process of legalizations at the Consulate takes from 10 to 15 days. The fee for legalizations is $ 176.00 CAD per document (each document in English and each document in Spanish as a result of the translation)
If the application is made by a third party, an extra consular fee of $ 40.00 CAD will be charged for non personal service.
If the application is made by mail, an extra consular fee of $ 40.00 CAD will be charged for non personal service. A pre-paid safe envelope (with tracking number) must be sent in order to return the documents. The payment must be done by Money order or certified check.
NOTE: All cash sent by mail will be refused and returned at the own risk of the applicant.
