PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED DOCUMENTS FOR MIXED MARRIAGES BETWEEN A BRITlSH NATIONALS AND INDONESIAN NATIONALS
A mixed marriage between a British national and an Indonesian national performed legally in Indonesia is also legal in the United Kingdom providing it has been carried out according to the laws in force in both countries, and the necessary documentation is in order.
Please note that the following information is a brief outline of the necessary requirements and procedures for British nationals who are going to marry Indonesian nationals. Therefore, the British Embassy or Consulate General in Indonesia, as well as the marriage authorities in Indonesia, should be contacted for more detailed information before any further plans are made.
Furthermore, whilst the concept and tradition of marriage is strongly upheld throughout Indonesia, each region has its own traditions and cultures in connection with marriage and the wedding ceremony itself. In this regard, it is strongly suggested that any mixed couple planning to get married in Indonesia also contact the marriage authorities in the region/province where their wedding is due to take place so that they are familiar with the local wedding traditions and customs.
