    Some said i wouldn't have to undergo the course but must be baptized again.

    (3) Now I'm hearing i must also pay allot of fees (up to 8 million) to declare my marriage to England to make it fully legal?

    Thank you and sorry for the venting.

    (1) Sometimes yes , sometimes no .
    I think that the first thing to do is to get the list of the required documents from the specific Catatan Sipil/Church where you intend to marry . If there is a document you don't have , you can ask them if an alternative similar document could be ok , instead .

    (2) I think this issue is related to each church/priest . You may find a "flexible" church/priest .

    (3) Although I am not an UK citizen , I recently read part of the UK Embassy's website and understood that you are not required to declare to them . What may happen is that the Indonesian Immigration sometimes asks for that from foreigners requesting Indonesian temporary/permanent residency permits .

    the letter of impediment is a letter issued by the British consulate stating that you're not married in the UK and free to legally wed.
    Also contact Bali weddings international - they will be able to guide you through the process.

    Bring your passport, and birth certificate and a letter of no impedment down to Bali and get it done within a day, there are companies specialising in mixed marriages here regardless of religion, nationality etc. Get married on the beach just the 2 of you and 2 witnesses and thats it youre legally married. Then to appease the family go through the motions back in JKT with a "blessing ceromony"

    British-IndoChinese Christian Marriage

    Hey everyone. I was hoping i could get some help and advice. I've heard and read about the correct procedure needed to be taken for this but finding it to be a pain in the backside.

    I visited the British Embassy to get the form needed for declaring i wish to be married and was made outside the grounds for an hour while the staff finished eating only to be sent away empty handed and no information given. Not even the security or reception could speak a work of English which i found odd as my Bahasa Indonesia isn't fluent. They did however put a sign on the wall while i was waiting that said it must be done through the consulate as of the 29th of November. (I went on the 22nd) So the following Monday i visited the consulate at 10am and it was closed, Went back at one and still closed. Tuesday same result. Wednesday i finally got the opportunity to speak with someone who told me i must make an appointment via www.clickbook.net first. So refused by the Embassy and Consulate and with nothing even given i proceeded to visit the website to make an appointment, There was no dates available until 1 and a half weeks later. After letting my British pride get the best of me i called the UK and asked why the Consulate and Embassy here we're so f***ed up and didn't help British Citizens, I later made the argument it's lucky i wasn't a tourist and had my passport stolen or i would be in allot of trouble. The lady agreed and was shocked at how things were run here and later said just do what they need you to do.

    So now I'm waiting for the appointment to speak to them about this.

    While waiting a few friends who had been married to locals over the past few years had told me to prepare birth certificate and passport ect (I didn't bring my birth certificate here, is it important?)
    A few locals told me i must also have a Baptism Certificate (What?) or i have to under go a six month course and be baptized again as it is a requirement of Indonesia Law (Whatt??)
    Some said i wouldn't have to undergo the course but must be baptized again.
    Now I'm hearing i must also pay allot of fees (up to 8 million) to declare my marriage to England to make it fully legal?

    I'm so confused with all this mixed information floating around and would really appreciate someone (none muslim wedding as it's different) to give me advice and point me in the right direction. I would really really appreciate it.

    Thank you and sorry for the venting.
