Apply online by filling out a marriage license worksheet anytime within one year of your marriage date. Payment of $65 to the State of Hawaii should be made at the time you apply online. Keep in mind, your application is good for 1 full year from the date it is submitted online. To begin the application, go to http://health.hawaii.gov/vitalrecords/marriage-licenses/

Next step in getting married in Hawaii, you have to meet with a Licensing Agent at the State of Hawaii Department of Health Marriage License Office.  Bride and Groom need to be present and have photo identification like a passport or driver license. Hours are 8:00am-3:30pm Monday thru Friday. If time is short or you need to meet with a marriage license agent on the weekend or after normal business hours, please contact the License Office at 808-586-4544.  For couples planning to stay on the North Shore of Oahu call this number: 808-293-6020.
