  • Marriage Question

    Morning,

    I'm traveling from outside Indo to get married in Jakarta.

    I have read that...

    [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana][COLOR=blue]Anyone planning to marry in Indonesia must give notice of their intention to the Registrar of Marriages in the district where the marriage is to be performed – at least 10 working days prior to the marriage[/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]But does anyone know of a minimum residence necessary before getting married. [/FONT][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]When notice is served, does all the documents need to be submitted at that time or is it just important the arranged date is declared.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Thanks for any help given[/FONT][/COLOR]

      well..first it will be so helpful if you have any relatives in indonesia..She/he will have to register you and the future spouse to the civil office for marriage to get the date that you wanted, makesure at least 40 days before..this will take sometime.

      usually one of you have to be residence at least 30 days, but me i had my indo id card and i dont show them my passport..LOL

      so you have to fill the form in your embassy, both of you, then they will send it to your country origin. They will declare in the city hall of your origin that you getting married in Jakarta and if anybody objected. Takes 10 working days untill they send it back to jakarta.

      Then you pick it up, and you have to report to police station, and sign some permit paper to get married there.

      then voila..get married..after when you have the book you need to legalize it back to the embassy to get your new family book.

      If you dont want to get headache and moving here and there by yourself. ask a law firm that can do it for you..look above there some law firm Wijaya & co

      Oh sorry i dont even ask you..is it mixed marriage? hehehe

        Thanks for the quick responses..

        wow... 40 days???? i feel scared!

        Yeah mixed Brit/Indo. I'm not moving to Indo, my GF already holds a uk visa, so we'll just use that for the moment.

        I expected to fly in, submit docs, wait 10 working days, married, few days relax then out again. (closest I can get to a L.A. style drive through), but you think they might be complications along the way????

        The POLICE Station???? OMG.... how much do they want in a brown envelope? I lost what little resect I had for them when my gf had to bung an officer after she made a CORRECT turning, but thats another story!

        BTW we both Islam.

          You can get married in Indonesia on a tourist visa. If its a catholic marriage you will need to attend the "marriage courses" beforehand. Which discuss things like sex, money, communcations etc etc in the marriage. (it takes two weekends only, about 12 hours)

          You will need a translation of any certificates you have... (birth, baptism etc) translated into bahasa Indonesia.

          A baptism certificate needs to be renewed by the church where u were baptised. It has to be renewed (just a new print out basically) within 6months before the wedding. If its one day over 6 months they wont accept it.

          You need the letter of non impediment, which shows that you are single, either by divorce/death or never been married. I got mine at the Australian embassy and it was done in 10mins not 10 days....

          Have a look on the brittish website they should have more info on there.

                  definitively U DON'T HAVE TO BRIBE POLICE or CATATAN SIPIL or whoever to get married in Indonesia. Just learn the language and be firm. To be really honest there is a very long time I haven't bribe any civil officer here in Indonesia. I am quiet fluent in my local dialect which helps a lot.

                  But if u plan to marry here in Indo, I would advice u to take a lil bit more time. When it comes to papers it is not good to be in a rush. If "they" have the feeling that u run out of time... then "they will" give u hard time and make u understand that some money would help to hv the thing done faster.

                        Congratulation!!! I'm Indonesia and my hubby is American. When we got married in sep 2001, it didn't that complicated at all. Yes, you have to have proof that you're single. My hubby didn't have to deal with police at all and I didn't have to bribe anybody. He arrived in Indonesia on the 2nd and we got married on the 11th. It was fast and painless. The matrimony was beautiful and reception was great. Good luck, may Allah bless your marriage.
