Courthouse Holidays


The following are dates which have limited hours of operation and may include an extra fee or $150, special arrangements or may be closed all day. As holidays tend to get a bit stretched out on St. Thomas you should check if your wedding date is near a holiday as well. If you are on island the day or days before your wedding then you can go to the court house early.   If you are on island for only one day then call the court house to check the hours of operation for that day and if there is an extra fee.
