Everything you need to know about getting married in Singapore is available on the Registry of Marriages (ROM) website. All Singapore marriages must be registered with the ROM. Here’s a great list of wedding venues to party or dine at after!
Getting married in Singapore – here’s how you do it!
#1 Choose your location
If you plan to have the solemnisation outside of the ROM, you must choose your own solemniser. If you don’t know of one, there is a list of authorised officiates on the ROM website who work on a voluntary basis.
#2 File notice of your intended marriage
You need to have a valid passport and meet the same eligibility requirements that citizens do. You must also include details of your two witnesses in your application.
At least one of you must have been resident in Singapore for at least 15 days before filing a notice of marriage. This applies to all, regardless of citizenship. The earliest you may solemnise your marriage is 21 days from the date of application. The latest is three months.
#3 If your application is successful
Both of you are required to go to the ROM on the date and time specified (usually three to four working days before solemnisation) for verification of documents and administration of the statutory declaration.
This is the actual wedding ceremony, where you say “I do” and receive your marriage certificate.
Marriages that take place in Singapore are recognised in most countries, though you should check with your embassy if you’re unsure about the legal status of the marriage in your home country.
