Japan – Indonesia International Marriage Component 2 (Wedding Procedure)

Proceed the wedding

Japan and Indonesia has differences that are many marriage procedures. We needed to determine where you want to continue it, whether in Indonesia or perhaps in Japan first. As each of us had been in Japan so we needed to make an application for visa afterwards, therefore we decided to have finished in Japan first.

I came across astonishing instances during the procedures. As an example, in Indonesia, perhaps the wedding are going to be held by both Indonesia nationwide, every person has to get “Single Certificate” (certificate mentioned that you aren’t in a wedding), but spouse stated that he’s never heard such a certification in Japan. He asked town hallway and so they said that, generally speaking marriage between both Japanese nationwide doesn’t have such certificate, but, for worldwide wedding where “Single Certificate” is necessary, town hallway will issue the document. Therefore, i believe perhaps not a lot of Japanese understand the presence associated with the certification.


Wedding in Japan is proceeded in town hallway. As my papers had been printed in Bahasa Indonesia, we needed seriously to obtain it translated into Japanese by Embassy of Republic of Indonesia before distribute it to Japan city hallway. We went to city hall to get it proceeded (for list of documents needed, please refer to your Embassy’s homepage) after we got all required documents ready (including marriage registration/kon’in todoke),. For Indonesia nationwide, details about worldwide marriage registration and document required could here be found (In Bahasa Indonesia)

City hall one who proceed our documents called to many other town hallway who possess expertise in proceed international wedding and seemed for a few appropriate means from a guide book that is thick. Once more, we discovered marriage that is international nevertheless unusual. However, individual in control quickly finished the procedures that are necessary explained every thing to us politely. It impressed me personally making me fall in love (again) to Japan.

Throughout the procedure, when I don’t have family title (which will be quite common in Indonesia), we confused simple tips to compose straight down my name on “Marriage Registration” sheet, where family members title and final name have to be on paper individually. In the long run, I became permitted to compose my name down simply the method it really is by ignoring edge line for family members title and final title. Furthermore, we thought I was surprised it wasn’t that I will, automatically, get my husband family name, but. (*In Japan, if a lady marrying a person, her family members title will soon be turned into her husband’s family members title).

All things considered procedures in city hall completed, we got hitched in Islamic method (called nikah) at Embassy of Republic of Indonesia in Tokyo. We received two Indonesia wedding certificates (it really is in passport size, with green and cover that is red being a proof that people are now actually couple.
