Rafflesia

Rafflesia

Rafflesia is a genus of flowering plants that is made up of of 16 known species. The best known of these species is Rafflesia arnoldii, which has the distinction of being the world's largest flower, reaching a diameter of about three feet. The Rafflesia flowers have been found only in Indonesia - on the islands of Sumatra and Java - and Malaysia, in particular in the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak. All of the known species of Rafflesia are threatened or endangered.

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. This goes for the Chinese population in Malaysia too where the day itself is declared a public holiday. For Chinese locals the new year means a new start where they can make new money and attract new businesses. At numerous locations in Malaysia people light fireworks during the celebrations. Chinese New Year is the only day in the year most of the shops are closed for business.

Airport Taxi at KLIA

Airport Taxi at KLIA

Though using the KLIA Express is a quicker way to reach Kuala Lumpur city center, using the airport taxi is a much easier way to reach your destination within Kuala Lumpur. KLIA Express only brings you to KL Sentral while the airport taxi drops you off right in front of your hotel. If you are traveling alone it might be too expensive compared to other options as you pay RM74.30 for a ticket. You can buy tickets for a fixed price at one of the taxi counters at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Food in Malaysia

Food in Malaysia

If shopping is the national pastime in Malaysia, then food is the national obsession. It is not uncommon to be greeted by the phrase 'Sudah makan?' (Have you eaten already?). Everything in Malaysia revolves around great food. Pleasant social get-togethers are always combined with having a nice meal. In Malaysia, more people blog about food than about anything else. Locals usually never eat at home; unless it is with family. Everybody eats outdoors every night; Malaysia is all about food!

Multi cultural Malaysia

Multi cultural Malaysia

Three main populations live in Malaysia; Malays, Chinese and Indians. All populations live together in harmony, though of course there are tensions every now and then but tourists will usually not notice that much of this. Over half of the population is of Malay descent; the Chinese form almost a quarter of the total population. Malaysians of Indian descent form approximately 7% of the population; while all indigenous people combined form about 11% of the total population in Malaysia.

Getting married in Malaysia

We both are foreigners from the same country and we would like to get married in Malaysia. What is the correct procedure?

Getting married in Malaysia is quite easy if both of you have not been married before. There are only a few necessary steps that need to be followed to go through the administrative part of a marriage. How you celebrate the ceremonial part (the actual wedding ceremony) is complete up to the soon to be married couple.

Requirements and steps needed to get married in Malaysia

nrd-maju-junctionBelow a short list with the requirements and steps that are necessary to get married in Malaysia based on situation where a foreign couple gets officially married:

  • First step is to go to your own embassy and both get an official ‘Single Status Declaration’ (or Letter of Confirmation of Marital Status). If this document is already given to you in the English language then you are good to go. If the document is handed out in a foreign language (not English and not Malay) then you need to have it officially translated. In some cases this can be done by your own embassy. If not, then you have to visit a Commissioner of Oath, widely available throughout Malaysia (we once used one in Lucky Plaza, opposite Bangsar Village I shopping center).
  • After you get two official (possibly translated) Single Status Declarations, you head over to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia in Putrajaya (see address below) to endorse (authenticate and legalize) the documents at their notarial service counter.
  • Some websites (also official websites) describe the requirement of bringing your birth certificate along. We did not need that.
  • Next step is to actually register your marriage. In order to do so you need to bring the documents mentioned before along, but also the official National Registration Department document: JPN.KC02. This document is in Bahasa Malayu, but you can get help at the National Registration Department (there is a foreign filled in example) or get help from any of your local friends. Make sure you bring along 1 color photograph measuring (32mm X 38mm) against a blue background for each person. To register your marriage you need to visit one of the official National Registration Department branches. There are a few in Kuala Lumpur, though the most centrally located one is at Maju Junction near the city center (see address below).
  • When you register your marriage you also need to bring along your original passport, including photocopies of the most important pages; the personal information page, the page with the date of arrival stamp and a copy of the departure card.
  • Tourists that want to get married in Malaysia need to reside in the marriage district for at least a period of 7 days before applying for registration of marriage at the National Registration Department Office.
  • When registering the marriage you are asked about the date that you actually get married. This date is always three weeks or more from the moment of registration. Remember that you need two witnesses (local or foreign aged 21 years and above, both need to bring along their passports) to appear at the actual marriage date (so not during the marriage registration); make sure they are able to join you at the actual marriage.
  • The costs of the marriage are RM30 in total, payment is done at the day you get married.
  • On that day all four need to bring along their passports. The couple also needs to bring along the official form that they got during the registration of the marriage. The wedding couple needs to wear proper clothes, semi formal and not casual (no jeans, short sleeved shirts and such). We saw people arriving in traditional Indian clothes, in complete wedding gowns (and tuxedos), but also many in smart casual to formal clothes (normal suit and such).
  • On the day of marriage you arrive in the morning. The procedure is based on a first come, first served basis. The earlier you arrive the bigger the chance that you are one of the first to get married that day. At 11am the marriage counter at NRD closes, all people that arrived before that time will be married on the same day. If you are too late, you need to reschedule.
  • After the marriage is final you get the official marriage certificate. You can chose to have this document endorsed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia so you can use it in your own country to register the marriage over there too.

So in Short: Single Status Declaration, Endorsement of Single Status Declaration, JPN.KC02 document, 1 color photograph, original passport, photocopies of important pages of passport, at least in Malaysia for 7 days, two reliable witnesses, RM30 total costs, three weeks from registration to marriage date.

Malaysia as a wedding destination

marriage-procedure-putrajayaOf course Malaysia has everything to offer to organize the best tropical wedding ever. There are numerous luxurious resorts at many destinations within Malaysia where you can have your wedding organized. Most resorts even offer wedding planning services. Popular places to hold a wedding ceremony are Langkawi Island, Penang Island, Pangkor Island, Tioman Island and many more destinations. All of these islands offer many great attractions, so your wedding guests can easily stay a bit longer before or after the wedding to fully explore the area.

    Dear Admin,

    Both me & my fiance are staying at KL but my IC Address is Kedah and his IC is Selangor. We would like to do a ROM at Bankers Club KL this November. But problem here now is the JPN Registrar already fully booked.

    If there any other way for us to hire a Registrar to solemnize our marriage at the club? Assistant Registrar from temple like Thean Hou Gong handle for solemnization at outside temple?

    Does both of us still require submit the application to Kedah and Selangor respectively?

    Look forward for your reply. Many Thanks

        We were both Dutch and got married in Msia. I don’t think it is that much harder, though there may apply certain rules for marrying a Malaysian. Anyway, I would recommend you visit the registration office. There you can have a talk which should clear everything up.

      Dear admin,

      Thank you for sharing foreign marriage in Malaysia. I am a Hong Kong resident and my boyfriend is an Algerian resident. We are planning to get registered and married in Malaysia. I would like to ask more information regarding below items:
      (1)For single status declaration form, we should get it from embassy in Hk/Algeria, or embassy in Malaysia?
      (2)Malaysia only allow HK people to stay maximum 1 month. The marriage procedure seems to take around or over 1 month(7 days stay in Malaysia and minimum 3 weeks from registration to marriage date) Please advise is there any fast channel that could speed up procedure and how much should he paid.

      Thank you for your kind assistance.

      Best Regards,
      Helen

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Many thanks that I received reply from your officer, and would like to ask further details.

    #1
    Regarding item 12: Confirmation letter that the applicant is not a Muslim from the respective government (i.e. Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Algeria, Pakistan, Bangladesh or other Muslim countries or from any other country if required)

    My Question: I m not a muslim and reside in hong kong, do I need to apply for it? If yes, can I apply it in Hong Kong?

    #2
    Regarding item 6: Birthe Certificate for Non-citizen

    My Question: It is issued in Chinese, do I need to translate it into English by professional translator?

    #3
    Regarding item 9: verifying marital status.

    My Question 1: Should I put Hong Kong identity card number or passport number on single status proven document? Or either one is fine?

    My Question 2:What is the valid date? Certificate should be issued no more than three months before marriage? Or six months? or other period?

    My Question 3: Single status certificate should be get at (a)Hong Kong embassy in Malaysia or (b) Malaysia embassy in Hong Kong or (c) Hong Kong Government department which has the authority to issue single status certificate

    #4
    (3) After staying in Malaysia for 7 days, foreign applicants then choose a date to marry. The application will normally takes 3 weeks.

    My Question: As Hong Kong citizen is only allowed to stay in malaysia for 1 month maxmium, please advise could I speed up application? If so, how much is the fee?

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Best regards,

    Helen

    Like mentioning on the site I thought it would be easy to get marry in Malaysia with my Indonesian girl but NO WAY!
    My nationality is Dutch. The Indonesian Embassy refused to legalize the document to get marry.
    Because she is has a tourist visum only with a working visum it would be possible.
    We have to marry in Indonesia or in the Netherlands.

    All of the info written above are nonsense! Muslims or not, foreigners or tourists cannot marry in Malaysia unless they have some sort of visa (student, work, pr, but not tourist)

    I went today to the national registrar and told us (I’m a Syrian national and my fiancé is an Egyptian) that they can’t help us because we are Muslim (although we don’t practice but it’s written in our birth certificates) So we went to the Kompleks Pusat Islam in KL and told us we can’t marry unless we are students, workers or pr but not tourists unless a 90 days has passed but I cannot stay all that long and my visiting visa will expire in 90 days… can anyone help please?

      I dont know what kind of Visa you have. You can go to Singapore, check in and out.
      We did this last week. From Johor Bahru because my Indonesian girlfriend is only allowed to stay one month in Malaysia.
      Check http://www.busonlineticket.com/ for the cheapest bus tickets. But REMEMBER you have to print the ticket! In Johor Bahru they only accept printed tickets. In most cities it was enough to show the Email with bookingsnumber.

      those requirements are for muslims.
      for non-muslims – tourists are allowed to marry within 8 days!
      you must get certificate of singlehood from your country and endorsd by ministry of foreign affairs.

      for muslims, i think u can go to a mosque and make enquiries. there are many imams who are authorized to solemnize.

      If she’s an American, she can visit you in Algeria (visa free) and do the marriage there. If none of you are students or residents in Malaysia, then you can’t marry each others. The only way for foreigners to get married in Malaysia is through their embassy or consulate, but I don’t know in your case if that even possible. Do not be fooled by the information mentioned in the article above as it’s nothing but pure bullshit. I’m Syrian, my wife is Egyptian, there was no way for us to get married in Malaysia as we we’re both visitors. We had to do the marriage through the Egyptian embassy in KL, which was kinda hectic as some of our documents were not ready and we had to prepare them. This has costed us lots of time and money. So it’s better you marry each others in Algeria.

    This process is painful and none of the official staff seem to know what you need exactly to complete the marriage. Me and my partner have done everything asked of us, including driving all the way from Penang to KL on two different occasions to get documents stamped and certified. We finally made our way to the JPN office an Penang today to submit the documents to be told we might need to go back to KL to get a student pass (which we already have and has been stamped by immigration in KL). All of this is completely unnecessary and making what should be a moment to savour an absolute nightmare.

      Not advisable. Try to get married in Pakistan or UK fat more easier .
      Please note though Malaysia claims to be am English speaking country , majority of the nation struggles with it unless you know the local language Malay you will be in trouble.

        Thanks for your concern,
        Pakistani and Bangladeshi nationals, if both have visit visa that is usually of short duration i.e 2 weeks. Can u please be more clear in this regard now?
        It’ll be nice of u.

      Don’t waste your time and money because, you can’t do so while on visitor visa. You either need to be a student or a permanent resident. Me (Syrian) and my wife (Egyptian) couldn’t get married as tourists in Malaysia, but luckily we were able to get married in the embassy. So check with your embassy in Kuala Lumpur if marriage is possible, otherwise, forget it.

        Thanks, I understood the fact that its not possible for us to get married on tourist visas there. Meanwhile, trying to find out other ways by which it could be done but a proper and feasible solution is not getting clear yet. Several queries are being clicked in mind like, do we both have to get student visa or only one of us? Is there any minimum period of stay after which we can marry ? will the marriage be accepted in our home countries or not etc. I hope that there surely are ways by which it’ll be possible someday, ISA.

    This short period u cant able to do that, and your are from Pakistan and Bangladesh which is more strict Malaysian law for marriage those countries as i know.
    Dont even trust those agents who promising you to do it, none agent cant do it. Its government and related on you only.
    Good luck.!

      Its almost clear that it can’t be done in such short span of time but digging out some effective way out to this circumstance. So that everything get done properly and according to the government laws as well. I believe, it may be difficult but not impossible. Lets see which route will take us to destination.

      Hi Ifah,

      My Fiance also local Malay, and i am an expat here.
      As we searched a lot reviews like everyone had very hassle process through going .
      But if you know how all procedure and Malaysian law its not that difficult as people are saying here. We are also both Muslims and he local, so we checked all info in Putrajaya Register office. It is possible to register marriage even he hold tourist visa as long as he legal. He need to get single status his hometown before coming to KL, if your all docs are ready, it will be as fast as procedure 1 month.
      All the best !!!

      3. For your information there is a special license provision in Malaysia that excluded couples to publish on the board in 21 days. However,
      this license is subject to the approval by the Registrar General of Marriage and shall take 7 working days for the approval. Once
      approved the fee for the license will be RM100.Please bring any supportive documents as a proof, for example the employment letter
      to verified your leave, flight booking confirmation and etc.

      Alternately in Muslim culture you need to pay haq-mehar also known as Dowry and this can be any amount you and your gf agree to .
