My Japanese wife and I recently got married in Malaysia.

It is fairly easy however there is some mucking about you have to do.

1. You will need a "letter of no impediment" for each of you from your embassy.

2. You need a certified copy (by embassy) of birth certificates

3. Copy of passport

4. A certified copy (by embassy) of divorce papers if that is relevant

5. Passport sized photos on blue background.

6. Each of the papers will need to be certified by the Malaysian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Putrajaya.

7. Your marriage celebrant can then fill out the Malay forms and arrange the legal wedding at the government offices in front of the licensed government celebrant and also the traditional wedding party elsewhere in front of friends.



Job is done. We were married in Penang. If you need a celebrant please contact me with a PM and I will give you the number of ours. Cost was 1400 RM.

Then my understanding is that you cannot marry in Malaysia. If you were catholic and he were Moslem it would be permitted.

If he is prepared to convert to Islam then you could marry.

Good luck

oh, my husband and I are different religion also (buddhist and catholic), but according to my fren because she is married also to a moslem, it is need that ur partner must follow your religion, ask her/him to convert and embrace islam, anyway am I correct moslem is also islam?.. if it is.. then you know Malaysia law(once moslem should marry a moslem, if you try to convert they will kick you out of the country =(( ), but if you want to get married without converting try thailand, (my cousin get married there she said it was so easy in that place but, malaysia dont recognize thailand marriage.. so your partner will really need to convert)

yeah I totally agree your correct, even in other country (muslim country), cannot marry unless both also are islam .. but you still can ask in JPN putrajaya maybe they cant explain to you here is their number 03-88808130 /8133 usually it takes hours before they answer.. so i suggest go to JPN physically

anyway goodluck ^^
