LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The County Clerk’s Office will temporarily open a pop-up marriage license office at McCarran International Airport next week to help couples obtain marriage licenses faster and easier during the busy Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day holiday period.

The temporary office will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from Feb. 13 to 16, and will be located in the baggage claim area in Terminal 1.

It will only issue marriage licenses, and will accept credit card payments.

Couples coming to Las Vegas to get married are encouraged to fill out a marriage license pre-application, which can be found through the County website . After completing the application online, the couple will be issued a reference number that they should bring with them to the Marriage License Bureau, or the temporary office at the airport.

Anyone seeking a marriage license needs to show proper identification, such as a driver’s license or passport (a complete list of allowed identification and other information is available through the Clerk’s Office web page).

Marriage licenses cost $77.

The Marriage License Bureau, a division of the Clerk’s Office, issues about 80,000 marriage licenses annually and is typically the busiest in the nation. In 2016, more than 1 out of every 25 marriages in the U.S. took place in Clark County.

More than 1,500 marriage licenses are issued during the days leading up to and including Valentine’s Day, which is about twice the number of licenses issued during a non-holiday period.
