  • Plan to get in married in Bali..HELP NEEDED NOW!!

    Hi all,


    I'm in need of some advise...


    First off, I'm originally from India and my fiance is an American. We just recently few months ago got engaged with in the family as traditional and just few days back her entire family had taken some time off and going back home and we've finally decided to that we some 2 weeks and if any possibilities we want to get married doing the Muslim ceremony.


    Please help me out here guys, we had set the date as 1st October' 2015, that is 13 days from now to perform the ceremony. I know it's not a lot of time, well barely anything. But, we would just like to perform the traditional Muslim ceremony legally.


    I would like to ask if that's it wouldn't be a problem or anything if TWO foreigners as I'm an Indian and my fiance is an American getting married in Bali while we get our visa on arrival.


    I'm planning to fly on the 20th prior to ensure everything as far as the process and meeting and inquire everything else that need to be done as smooth as possible as far my in laws would have a extreme respect for me to handle things flawlessly.


    Please guide me through as when I'd arrive at Denpasar Airport. I was planning to take a taxi and go check in the hotel in Ubud and probably ask around at the hotel, I was staying and around in town who can perform weddings.


    I also need some advise as far as the legal formalities that has to be taken care of once the wedding and issued the Marriage Book and going to the Civil Registry for the Marriage Certificate which will be recognized in India and as well as in United States.


    Why Bali?


    It's quite complicated, as I'm an Indian and she's an American born but her family is originally from Pakistan. So, it's close to impossible for her family to come to India, as for me to go to Pakistan it's 4 months lengthy process which is not guaranteed they'll issue me a visa or not.




    PLEASE GUYS HELP!!!!!


    I'd highly appreciate each and every individual guiding me thru and assisting me through my process.




    Thank You!


    Regards,


    Ahmed.

    (1) No problem with the Visa-on-Arrival . Indian citizens are eligible to the 30 days (may extend it once , to 30 days more) Visa-On-Arrival (VOA , USD35) . US citizens are eligible to this same VOA plus a 30 days free visa-on-arrival (cannot extend it) , this last if for tourism only .

    You may have more difficulties by getting the "No Impediment to Marry" Embassies' statement , which may require you to go to Jakarta (?) . My KUA accepted an equivalent document (does not mean your KUA will also accept it) issued in my country (a self statement with 2 witnesses , notarized) . Maybe in India you may have a government document stating you are single , for example (it must be a recently issued document) .

    (2) You will need to marry at the KUA (government marriage office for Muslims) . Sometimes each KUA may require a different list of documents , but you may have an idea of what may be required by reading the link below .

    (3) About being recognized by India and US , better read your Embassies' website to know . The KUA's marriage certificate (Buku Nikah) is already the Indonesian official Marriage Certificate , usually it is not required to get another one at the Civil Registry (the Indonesian Civil Registry is responsible for issuing Marriage Certificates for non-Muslims) .

    Again you may have to go to Jakarta if your Embassies require the Buku Nikah/Marriage Certificate to be legalized .
