  • Birth Certificate/Passport For Marriage?

    Hello,

    I am a U.S. citizen who will marry an Indonesian citizen in the upcoming months. I read online that I'd need to have a birth certificate and passport copy that are translated in Indonesian in order to get married. Is this correct? If so, how can I go about getting these documents translated?

    Thank you,
    NicholasF

    (1) Maybe . Better ask the officers/priest/KUA where you will marry , because procedures/required documents may differ a little depending on the city/church/KUA . In my case , an officer choose to use my country's identity card instead of the birth certificate (I had the birth certificate) , and he didn't require translation of it (neither translation of the passport) .

    (2) If sworn translation required , search the internet for "sworn translator in (city) , or just "sworn translator" as he/she doesn't need to be in your city . In my case there was only one document required to be translated and my KUA did it themselves (a translator they knew) , charged me Rp75'000 per page .
