If you are getting married then much like the US Embassy in Botswana under the article on you will note that the laws are similar. Firstly you will need to have a freedom to marry letter from the Embassy. You will need the original divorce decree or death certificate of your former spouse. It takes a few days to obtain. This needs to be verified, translated and then certified. Then you can legally get married. In Benin, the minimum legal age for marriage is 18. The polygamous marriages are recognized under customary law but are limited by civil law to only one wife. So you can only apply for one person for a marriage visa for the US.
