Marriage Registration

Wednesday, 14 February 2018 10:24

Marriage in Indonesia is pretty straight forward, simple, and most of all, legal. Consider Indonesia as a venue for your marriage registration. Indonesia's marriage certificate is world-wide recognized. Every marriage document issued by the marriage registry in Indonesia is in dual language i.e. Indonesian, and English. All you need to do is send us your personal details and picture of the two of you. Wijaya & Co can be your registration representative of your marriage at a marriage registry in Indonesia. You don’t have to queue-up for a registration and confined in a registration bureaucracy. Your marriage will be recognized by the Indonesian laws, and obtained worldwide recognition at the same time.

If both you and your fiance(e) are Christian, Buddhist or Hindu, you must hold the religious solemnization or ceremony first, then record the marriage with the Civil Registry. The Civil Registry will in turn issue a Marriage Certificate which is evidence that you are legally married. A Non-Moslem marriage which is not recorded by the Civil Registry is not considered legal. There is normally a ten-day waiting period in order to register your marriage with the Civil Registry in Indonesia. If your fiance(e) is Moslem, the ceremony should be registered at the Kantor Urusan Agama (“KUA”) or the Office of Religious Affairs.  These offices will issue a Marriage Book, which is evidence that you have legally married. Persons getting marry in a Moslem ceremony and issued a Marriage Book need not record their marriage with the Civil Registry. For foreign citizens, the documents required are copy of your passport, and a Non-Impediment Letter certifying that you are legally free to marry from your embassy in Jakarta. A Biographic Information is available to gather your personal information for getting your marriage registered in Indonesia.

Marriage in Indonesia is considered as a spiritual bond between a man and a woman. Therefore, Indonesia has no provision for mixed-religion marriage as the religion plays important role in your marriage life. Both partner must have the same religion. Otherwise, one of you must convert, if you have mixed-religion issue in your relationship. We can also assist you in religion converting and it can be carried-out within less than 30 (thirty) minutes before the marriage conducted.
