  • Registering a second marriage in Indonesia

    Salam O Alaikum

    I am planning to marry an Indonesian woman. This would be my second marriage in presence of the first.

    I am currently not in Indonesia and I would like to know if the Indonesian laws allow an Indonesian national's spouse to get a residency.

    If anyone can refer me to someone who has gone through this process or any company that helps in this procedure, I would appreciate it.

    Thanks
