Wedding Update 16: Application Form for Marriage.

Yes, this is the one part that we didn't know we had to do, until my amazing wedding planner mentioned it to us and was confirmed by our Pastor who is marrying us off on twentieth of September.

Since we have one month to go, we panicked because we didn't know how long this whole application is going to take or what are the things that we need to prepare.

So, in order for you couples-to-wed not to be panicky like us, here's a few steps of what to do to prepare for the signing ceremony, be it in church or not.

Step 1

Before heading to the Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) to get the form, here's a list of things you should do and have when you go to JPN together.

This will make your life easier, trust me.
  1.  Passport photos of yourself in hardcopy (with blue background).
  2.  A copy of your witness' IC in A4 paper. 
  3. A copy of your own IC also in A4 paper. 
  4. A copy of your birth certificate.
  5. RM20 to pay for the form.
That's it.

Step 2

Bring all those documents and go to the Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN). I don't know where else JPM is located but we went to the town one, opposite Wisma TNB, nearby KDU College and located next to The one Academy College. The big brown-ish building.

Our office is nearby that area so we walked over during lunch time. It's very difficult to find parking there by the way. VERY DIFFICULT.

Remember to go together because they obviously need to see your face. The government people.

Go up to Level 3, and head to the Jabatan Perkahwinan office. If not sure, ask someone there. Their office is quite secluded inside. You will see a food court there. It's behind the food court.

Take a number and wait for 5 seconds.

IT'S REALLY QUIET IN THERE ESPECIALLY LUNCH TIME SO ITS THE MOST EFFECTIVE TIME TO DO IT.

Step 3

The government person will need both your Identification Card (IC) and she will check on her computer to see both of your legal status.

After confirm both also single, she will then bring out a piece of form and explain to you both on the things you need to do and documents you need to prepare, of which you will already have if you follow my steps. Hah. Okay, so what you need to do now is to fill up the form. There is a bahagian lelaki and bahagian perempuan and attache all the documents with the form.

BUT THERE IS JUST ONE MORE THING THAT YOU NEED TO DO BEFORE THE WHOLE PROCESS IS COMPLETED.



Step 4

You will need to bring the form and all the documents to a Commissioner of Oath, who will usually be in a law firm.

We went to the a law firm at the street along UMNO Building. It's at the same row with City Link.

The whole process takes about 5 minutes I think.

We went in and the woman took our IC to validate the information, and sign for us. Pay her RM20 for the service and off we went.

Step 5

Go back to JPN, and submit the completed form with the documents. She will check and stamp this and that and sign, then you're done.

She will pass all the documents back to you so that you may pass it to your pastor and your pastor will do the rest from there. If you are not signing the paper in church, then you should probably ask the government people on what is to do next because we obviously didn't go through that part. Hah.



It feels super crazy to complete this part of the borang perkahwinan because at a time, it felt as though we have signed the legal document as husband and wife.

Oh my. This will be my most important signature yet. G.

No turning back already. Not that I want to also :)

Bye now.
