Licensing of Civil Union Performers in the State of Hawaii
Licenses to perform civil unions are issued by the State of Hawaii Department of Health pursuant to section 572B-4, Hawaii Revised Statutes. All civil union performers (officiants or solemnizers) must be licensed by the State of Hawaii before performing a civil union. Performers must register online to obtain a license to perform civil unions. Shortly after registering online, the performer will receive an email notification for application approval. This email will contain a link to the performer’s license and a username and password to the electronic registration system for civil union and marriage. If any information on the application is missing or not subject to on-line verification, a delay will be necessary for manual verification of the applicant’s eligibility to perform a civil union.
