When to Honeymoon in Brazil

Don't forget to consider the temperatures when planning your honeymoon in Rio de Janeiro. Summer in Brazil lasts from December through February, when temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius can be expected. Tourists also flock to Rio de Janeiro during these months, meaning elevated prices and crowds. Be sure to book in advance if you travel during these months. A honeymoon in Rio de Janeiro can be best enjoyed during the winter, when you’ll be able to avoid the throngs of people (at least to some extent) and enjoy more reasonable temperatures.

It is recommended that a couple intending to marry should register their intent to do so at least 30 days prior to the intended date of the marriage ceremony. The registration process can take a minimum of 20 days and a maximum of 60 days.

Foreigners must fill in an application form and present the following documents at the registry office to begin the marriage process:

•           Original copies of passport or Foreigner's identity card

•           Original birth certificate - certified by a Brazilian Consulate in the issuing country

•           Declaration of Civil Status issued by the local Consulate or Embassy (the declaration of civil status is valid for ninety days)

Publication of the banns: The registry office displays the statement of the intention of marriage on its walls for a period of 15 days and publishes banns in the local press. Following a 15 day waiting period the couple are free to marry.

Issue of marriage licence: Once all the documents have been presented to the registry office, approved by the notary officials and no valid objections have been received from members of the public, the registry official issues a marriage license which is a permit to marry, valid for 90 days.
