Yes, even two non-citizens with visas can get married. Just bring your visa and passport to the county courthouse and register for a lisense.


You can get married, but you cant have the status of the non-immigrant adjusted if you get married in the USA without going through the proper K1 Visa process.

Unless you are on the tourist visa, then rolls simply change. You need to file for I-485, and your US citizen spouse needs affidavit of support and other forms of documents.
