Wedding Officiant and Ceremonial Minister Ordination

Performing A Marriage
Ceremony In USVI?

USVI Wedding Minister Ordination

Your complete ceremonial minister credentials package for USVI includes all of the documents you'll need to legally perform all of life's celebrations, including weddings, baby blessings (baptism), house blessings, re-commitment ceremonies (vow renewal), memorials (funerals), handfasting and other ceremonies.
Ordination through First Nation as a Wedding Officiant and ceremonial minister complies with all USVI laws and is valid and accepted throughout the state and everywhere around the world!

Under the laws of the US Virgin Islands, persons performing marriage ceremonies are not required to file their credentials with any agency prior to performing a ceremony anywhere in the state. You must hold a current and valid minister's license  to perform such rites; in addition, you must present your credentials to any legal authority and/or the bridal couple upon their request.

In USVI, ordination or investment by the Church gives each clergy member the authority to perform the marriage rite. You are not required to undergo any specific formal training to become ordained in USVI.

Not a resident of USVI? USVI does not restrict legally ordained non-resident ministers from serving anywhere in the state. Under the terms of your ordination, you will also be permitted to serve in your home state.

Registration Fee: The current registration fee is $32 for comprehensive (complete) ordination that is accepted in USVI, as well as most other states and local jurisdictions (two-year licensing term). All required forms and documents are included.

Please Note: Basic (one day, or single ceremony) ordination is not accepted in USVI. To perform marriage ceremonies in USVI, you must request complete ordination.
