Quick wedding destinations near SG

Post by yellowdayze » Sat, 17 Aug 2019 2:43 pm

Hello all,

My girlfriend and I are needing a quick wedding somewhere close to SG. Does anyone know of a convenient (quick, cheap, hassle-free) location?

Thanks for any help you can give.

What's wrong with Singapore? You can get married here easily enough.

Not that cheap anymore unless you are a heck of a frequent flyer. ;-)

Neighboring countries have residency requirements. Example: In Malaysia you need to be resident in the district in which you get married for seven days or more. You need a bunch of other docs as well.

Maybe Thailand would be your best bet. A three day residency requirement. You need an affidavit from your embassy (both of you) that you are single. You get married in front of a registrar in a civil ceremony.
If you are both foreigners, you will need to present yourself in person with your passports at your home embassy in Thailand. You will be required to complete declarations attesting that you are single and free to marry in accordance with Thai law, and a consular officer will then register the marriage. You will need to have the completed declaration translated into Thai, and you will then need to take all the required documents, translations and passport copies to the legalisation division of the Department of Consular Affairs for it to be signed. This usually takes two days.

Once this has been done, the documents and translations are then ready to be submitted to the District Registrar, who will register the marriage and issue the marriage certificate in Thai.

SMS has got it right. The simplest place to get legally married is Singapore... then go have a second celebration ceremony somewhere else... Tioman aint bad.
