To get married in this country you will need to bring your original documents and photocopies thereof. English is not an official language of this country, so you will probably need a translation of the following documents to get married:
Other details required for legal statements include:
Marriages abroad are recognised by UK law only if they were were conducted in accordance with the local law of the country - although it cannot be registered at a UK register office. If there is any doubt about the legality, contact the Home Office before making any arrangements.
Malaysia is a member of the Hague Convention, so any official documents legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London should be valid.
If you have any useful experiences we could share with our clients, we would love to hear from you! Please tell us using the feedback form and in time we will add it to the Certificate Translator site.
Kind words from our clients ...
I do appreciate the willingness and readiness of the people in TransAction Translators Ltd to help their clients. Because of the inefficiency of the postal service, the translated documents did not arrive to me in time. They were more than happy to reissue another copy of the translation and send it directly to the GMC office, who confirmed that they received it and assured me not to worry. Tomorrow I will be flying to London with peace of mind!
