How to Get Married in Indonesia (Bali)

Religious Ceremonies: Indonesian law only recognizes religious marriage ceremonies. Requirements vary depending on which religious ceremony you choose to have.

If you or your fiancé are Muslim, the ceremony should be held at the Kantor Urusan Agama (KUA), or the Office of Religious Affairs.

These offices will issue a Marriage Book, which is evidence that you have been legally married. It is not necessary to register your marriage with the Civil Registry.

If you or your fiancé are Christian, Buddhist or Hindu, you must hold the church (or temple) ceremony first, and then record the marriage with the Civil Registry.

The Civil Registry will then issue a Marriage Act, which is evidence that you are legally married.

Waiting Period: There is normally a ten-day waiting period in order to register your marriage with the Civil Registry.

Required Documents: In order to register your marriage with the Civil Registry, the following documents are normally required (please note that documentary requirements may vary from district to district):

  • Certified Birth Certificate
  • A sworn affidavit witnessed by a Consular Officer at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate General in Surabaya stating that you are legally free to marry.
  • Proof of citizenship (your passport)
  • If previously married, a certified copy of the final divorce decree, or death certificate if marriage ended due to death of spouse
  • Certificate of Solemnization of Marriage from the church or temple
  • Six identical photographs of you and your spouse together
