The website for British Embassy Jakarta is pretty explicit that it cannot accept registration of a foreign marriage (ie a marriage such as Buku Nikah which happens in Indonesia) but it can undertake a Deposit of the marriage with the General Register Office back in Uk at a fee of 35 Pounds and requiring us to give up the original Buku Nikah.
It was always my understanding that KUA and Catatan Sipil run side by side and one legal marriage with one does not need to be registered with the other. I quite understand why a foreign overseas marriage should be registered with Catatan Sipil but why should a KUA Marriage conducted in a legal way be subjected to the same requirement. Is there a glitch in the law that they would be concerned we would attempt to use the CNI for marriage to two different people at KUA and Catatan Sipil.
Hoping all this is a 'red herring' but also hoping someone can put my mind at rest before my imminent visit to Immigration to make my Kitas Extension for the second year.
