Proceed the wedding
Japan and Indonesia has numerous variations in wedding procedures. We had to decide where we should continue it, whether in Indonesia or in Japan first. As each of us had been in Japan and now we needed to make an application for visa afterwards, therefore we made a decision to have finished in Japan first.
I discovered cases that are surprising the procedures. For instance, in Indonesia, perhaps the wedding should be held by both Indonesia nationwide, every person has to get “Single Certificate” (certificate mentioned that you’re not in a married relationship), but spouse stated that he’s never heard this kind of certification in Japan. He asked town hall and additionally they stated that, generally speaking wedding between both Japanese nationwide doesn’t need certificate that is such nevertheless, for worldwide wedding where “Single Certificate” is necessary, town hallway will issue the document. Therefore, i do believe perhaps not many Japanese understand the presence regarding the certificate.
Wedding in Japan is proceeded in town hall. As my papers had been written in Bahasa Indonesia, we necessary to have it translated into Japanese by Embassy of Republic of Indonesia before distribute it to Japan town hallway. Directly after we got all needed documents ready (including marriage registration/kon’in todoke), we visited town hallway to have it proceeded (for set of papers required, please relate to your Embassy’s website). For Indonesia nationwide, information regarding worldwide wedding enrollment and document required could here be found (In Bahasa Indonesia)

City hallway one who proceed our documents called with other town hallway who possess expertise in proceed international wedding and seemed for many appropriate methods from the dense guidebook. Once again, we recognized marriage that is international nevertheless uncommon. Nevertheless, individual in fee quickly finished the procedures that are necessary explained every thing to us politely. It impressed me personally making me fall in love (again) to Japan.
Through the procedure, when I would not have household title (that will be quite typical in Indonesia), we confused simple tips to compose straight down my name on “Marriage Registration” sheet, where household name and final name should be on paper individually. In the long run, I happened to be permitted to compose straight down my title simply the means its by ignoring edge line for household title and final title. Moreover, we thought I was surprised it wasn’t that I will, automatically, get my husband family name, but. (*In Japan, if a lady marrying a guy, her family members title are going to be turned into her husband’s household title).
Most likely procedures in city hallway completed, we got hitched in Islamic method (called nikah) at Embassy of Republic of Indonesia in Tokyo. We received two Indonesia wedding certificates (its in passport size, with green and red address) being an evidence that people are actually wife and husband.

An individual from Embassy of Republic of Indonesia whom took proper care of our nikah ended up being really courteous and mild, he offered a mild advice to spouse, “There are a whole lot of haram things such as for instance pork and liquor right here in Japan, but in my opinion being a Muslim, we could keep carefully the faith, best of luck and do your most useful!”.
