Wedding Information (including the holiday resorts of Penang.)

Get an idea of cost for a certified translation on the get a price page.

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:

+ Birth Certificate
Full birth certificate of both bride and groom required.
+ Decree Absolute
If divorced, provide with a court stamp. An additional copy is usually required.
+ Proof of Change of Name
Proof that has been stamped and signed by a solicitor is required if either party has changed their name by deed poll or statutory declaration. This also applies if a previously married woman has reverted to using her maiden name.
+ Adoption Certificate
If either party was adopted, adoption certificate is required.

Other details required for legal statements include:

+ Full Names
Bride and groom's full names.
+ Addresses
Bride and groom's full addresses.
+ Occupations
Bride and groom's occupations.
+ Religions
Bride and groom's religions.

Other:

+ Residency
Minimum residency period, excluding day of arrival, in working days.
7 days.
+ Passport
Valid 10-year passport of both bride and groom required.
+ Parental Consent
Notarised Statutory Declaration or Affidavit. Required if under 18, unless otherwise stated.
Parental consent is required if a party is under 21 years of age.
Father must give consent in person or in writing.

Other notes:

+ 4 passport size photographs of each party

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.

Seek advice from your GP in case you require any vaccinations or medical advice at least 3 months before departure date.


Hague Convention

Malaysia is a member of the Hague Convention, so any official documents legalised by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London should be valid.
