Legal Wedding Requirements in Bali


By I Nengah Subadra PhD


Bali Tourism Directory, 20 October 2015



Once you decided to get married and conduct your wedding in Bali which is worldly known as the island of paradise, a number of legal documents are needed to be prepared by the bride and groom as COMPULSORY administrative requirements that officially stipulated by Government of Bali including:



1. Copy of Birth Certificate or Record of Birth


2. Copy of Passport (for foreigner) or Copy of Identity Card of KTP (for Indonesian)


3. Copy of  Certificate of No Impediment to Marriage


4. (If you are divorced) Copy of Divorce Certificate or Decree Absolute


5. (If you are Indonesian) Copy of Celebacy Certificate or widely known as Unmarried Certificate that normally issued by the Head of Village (Kepala Desa) and MUST be legalised or seen by the authority of the Sub-district office (Kantor Camat).


6. (If you are a foreign citizen to marry Indonesian) Please highly note that some Heads of Villages in Indonesia usually obligate the foreign bride and or groom to prepare a Police Record before approving Agreement of Parents for the Marriage as required to complete the legal marriage requirements.


Please highly note that your marriage CAN NOT BE SOLEMNISED unless all such compulsory requirements met! Therefore, it is greatly advised to arrange all those documents in advance at least one or two months prior to your wedding time since it will take some times to organise them all.


These documents shall be translated into Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian Language) by a SWORN and CERTIFIED translator. This means that the translation/Target Language shall be signed and stamped by the translator that registered in Indonesian goverment offices.


Please bear in mind that the original documents shall be presented before the Indonesian authorities during the solemnisation. Please do consult your wedding organizer to assist you preparing the official translations or just simply recommend to contact the registered translation office in Denpasar Bali as recommended below!


Here is the recommended translation office that based in Denpasar Bali. Please be aware of fraud! Some translation agencies or even many personnels using Bali as key word for their translation promotions or advertisements, but their offices are actually NOT in Bali.
