How do you get ordained to perform wedding ceremonies for your friends and family in USVI? Getting ordained is simple, legal, inexpensive and takes just a few minutes!
Minister ordination for USVI includes authorization to legally perform all of life's celebrations, including marriage ceremonies (weddings), baby blessings (baptism), house blessings, re-commitment ceremonies (vow renewal), memorials (funerals), handfasting, and other rites and rituals.
Ordination as a Marriage Officiant and ceremonial minister complies with all state and local laws in USVI and is valid and accepted throughout the United States 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 Marriage Officiants from performing wedding ceremonies anywhere in the state.
Ordination Fee: We offer low-cost ordination that is valid and accepted throughout the United States, including USVI, for a nominal fee that covers our basic printing costs, which is generally a fraction of how much you can earn by performing just one ceremony!
All state-required forms and documents are included in all packages. In addition, any fees paid may be tax-deductible as a work-related expense. (Consult with your tax professional for more information.)
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.
