Get married to a Myanmar man or lady

The following is the article from Myanmar Man’s Diary blog republished with permission. The article give on get married to a Myanmar man or lady. It is quite difficult, due to restrictions in Myanmar law, but entirely possible.

Many of our visitors asked us information on getting married to a Burmese. Apparently, they find it difficult to find information on getting married to a Burmese. There are no information available on  to a Burmese (guy or girl). I think it is time to give you some information on this issue for those Burmese guys and girls who found difficulty getting married to a foreigner, and those foreign men and ladies want to get married to a Burmese.

  1. Burmese law allows Myanmar citizens to get married to a foreigner. In the past, it used to be easy to get it done. Just head to a local judge and he will marry you. However, since about 10 years ago, local judges refused to do it on the ground that it is difficult to distinguish between real marriage and the human trafficking. Today, no judge or local court would marry a Burmese and a foreigner.
  2. Even after you get married, your marriage certificate (actually a marriage contract in Burma) is in Burmese language. It has to be translated into English. You can get a certified notary translation of your marriage certificate into English but the Foreign Office will refuse to certify that notary. You can still use it if your embassy accepts the notary without a certification by the Foreign Office, but some embassies would not.
  3. The best way to get your marriage done is to do it in a foreign country. You can do it either in Thailand or in Singapore. If you are doing it is Thailand, you will need an affidavit of freedom to get married. This has to be endorsed by your embassy. For a Burmese, he can get an affidavit in a court in Myanmar, get it translated into English by a notary public, and then get a certification from the Foreign Office in Myanmar. This can then be endorsed by the Thai Embassy in Yangon or endorsed by the Burmese Embassy in Bangkok. Both of you will need this affidavit. Then, go to a nearest amphur (local district administrative office) and get your marriage done. However, please check with the district office you intend to get married before you do anything as the requirements by the office may vary from one office to another.
  4. Easier one is to get married in Singapore. This is what I have done after I cannot do it either in Myanmar or in Thailand. All you need is a valid passport. You can file your marriage application online. However, the applicant (either you or your fiancé) has to be in Singapore at the time of filing for at least 15 days. After the filing, you can leave Singapore as there is 21 days waiting period. You will need two witnesses (either Singaporean or foreigner of at least 21 years of age). You can choose get married at the ROM (Registry of Marriage) or with a solemnizer in a hotel. However, getting a solemnizer is sometimes difficult. You can get the complete information at Registry of Marriage website.

    Really thank you for the useful information you posted. I just want to check with you if you have any information on how the spouse who is the foreigner, to migrate/have a long term stay in Myanmar? Or vice versa, is it easy for the spouse(Burmese) to migrate to other countries such as Singapore?

    I truly appreciate if you can provide some information on this.

    Thank you for your time in advance!

    • January 19, 2012 at 4:21 pm

      You can ask for social visa which can extend up to six month, with yearly extensions afterward. For migration to other countries, it depends on the other country’s policy.

          In fact, most human trafficking were occured from borders of China, Thiland and Golden Triangle Areas. So, they deny the marriage of Asian Man especially Chinese to Myanmar Woman. But according to 1923 Constitution, no judge can refuse to register to the marriage of Foreigner and Myanmar Man/Woman. But they can withhold the registeration by appealing to Chief Justice.

    Who cares? Who in their right mind would marry a Burmese? They have been outside the world for the last 50 years. That said I do plan to visit that backwater 3 months from now to check on opportunity. Some people understand Asia well. Some don’t. I’ll give it a shot. It is a long shot, but so be it.

      Hi Jack, sound like u r racist person, how can u left such a stupid comment, I think u might probably be moron or suffer frm congenital mental disorders due to the gene of ur parents. I would advice u to trace out the history of ur family (ancestors) background n consult with a psychologist. I m wondering which country u r frm, which race u belong to n what religion do u practice, knowing those I can avoid the idiot person in my life. Hope u r doing great in ur little world…..I would appreciate if u would reply my comment…..

        he probably end up breaking up with her burmese girl lol, anyway how does it feel? burmese women cannot hangout with u during weekends, because they have to work 2-3 jobs, because they have to pay their bills, how does it feel when they cannot sleepover to your house? lol it hurts tho! and how does it feels like when they chooses their family instead of you because they don’t like their daughter to marry a foreigner who do not know how to speak chin or burmese, lol i know that feeling dude! but you don’t have to be stupid acting like that, you have to respect theses people, like you i have been through with that situation, i have been dating with chin/burmese girl, she choose her family and end up breaking me up, it’s so stupid but, i do really understand her, because i love her

They are way better human beings than YOU -rude, sick, ignorant , no manner, don’t your parents teach you to be a human?

        Sorry to hear that it cost you so much to get it registered in Thailand. Here in Malaysia, I married to a myanmar lady in 2003 when there is not much myanmar people here. It cost me about RM100/=. to get it registered and done. The letter translated to english is important but the court declaration (cost RM10/=/document) will do. I will list out the step here once I re-confirm the latest info from them. As my is already about 10 years old.

    I am an Australian and got married to a Myanmar woman last year. Too difficult to do it in Myanmar so I arranged to do it at the registry office in Melbourne Australia. You need to go there have an interview with all documents and proof and submit your forms at least 31 days ahead. I went to Australia for 3 months and managed to get it finished in that time. You just have to make sure you have all the documents because in my wifes case she had been married before and her husband had died so had to have those documents from Myanmar translated to show in Australia. So great patience needed and study of the details.

May I ask what visa you were able to get your then fiance into Australia on? We have applied for a Tourist Visa and it was knocked back. It’s a tricky maze to navigate and would appreciate any advice you can offer. Happy to give you my email if that’s easier. I’d be so, so thankful for any advice you can offer my brother.

      I don’t believe you Joe, Are U a foreigner in Malaysia? Don’t mislead people with your claim. Did U ever visit to the JPN – to registered your marriage and the immigration visa for spouse stay? Without letter, you won’t go anywhere. Going to the court for stamping on the letter will cost you just RM5/=. You will need all those document from the Registrar of Marriage and the English version of the say certificate (for easy dealing with the embassy later on). All those can be requested during the marriage registration then off you go to immigration office with plenty of form to fill in. That only one part – after a few year, head to myanmar embassy for your passport extension and income tax payment.

      It will be much cheaper to registered the married in Malaysia, just go to the JPN office and fill in the form. It will be up in the board for two weeks and come back again to get the paper if there is no objection. So, her visa of one month – you must do it the first week, then get your paper done on the 3 weeks. Go to immigration to get her spouse visa for her to stay in Malaysia. It will be first time – one month, second time, 3 month, third time. 6 month visa. That will continue for about a two years before you get her the one year visa. Then, her passport will about to expired, time to do it at Myanmar embassy in KL.

      You need to have a notarial translation of his status stating he is single and never been married before. He may had a Myanmar version, just get a English version with any chop from their side. He need a passport and his income tax form (for Myanmar embassy later on).
      Malaysia side:
      1. First, get two of each document with photocopy and passport photo of both of you.
      2. Go to registrar of marrieage and fill in the marriage form and paste the photo on it. They will ask you to find a suitable date from the calendar for the married ceremony to collect the certitficate usually two week from the date you fill-in.
      3. They will requested from you – your IC. Birthday cert. and his passport and notarial note. You may need to go to court to take a oath on the originality of the form (RM10/=. only) or get it done at the same place for (RM20/=.) if the commisionar of oath is there.
      4. After two week, go back there to have a simple ceremony, you need to bring two witness, one from each side or both can be from Malaysia (they need to bring their ic). In 15 min, all will be done.
      5. You will be issue with a malay version of the marriage cert. You need to request for a English version of it. Need to pay another RM10/=. This English version will be use for registration at the Myanmar embassy saving you lot of trouble in getting a Myanmar version.

      6. After all done, you need to make a visa for staying in the country. Copy 4 set, go to immigration office to collect visa form. Form is free. fill it up, paste the photo on it.If the magistrate court is nearby, head over it and ask for certification. (RM10/=). they will fill up your detail and print out a receipt. Chop on the immigration form with both your photo on it. You make a Photostat copy. head to immigration to complete your visa application. If you find it hard to travel around, use the service of commisionar of oath, they charge a little more RM20/=. but save you the time of running around but I stay nearby the court and I must pass throught them before reaching the immigration office so I usually do it in the court. The first time when you do it. You will need to get it stamp your bond with income tax department. You will need to go to their office. Myanmar citizen bond is RM1,800/=. It is a bond, no need to pay that amount yet.

      Photostat the completed form for your future reference when filling in the form again. The detail like their home address in their home country etc. Keep it ready as you need to fill it again and again.

      Malaysia spouse visa with multiply entry will cost you around RM360/=. So, you need to bring around RM500/=, in your pocket to save yourself a trip to the bank.

      After all the thing done and your spouse get the Malaysia visa to stay in Malaysia. Next, you will need to register with Myanmar embassy when you want to travel back to Myanmar. Myanmar embassy will ask from you RM1,600/= for the return ticket (must pay). for it citizen to stay aboard and renew the passport. Keep the receipt. You can now apply for social visit visa to stay in her house or with tourist visa, you can only stay in hotel/motel registered with the tourist ministry there. It can cost you a lot. Social visit visa or business visa will required her to fill up a separate form to support your application. It all in Myanmar language. Once back in Myanmar, nothing to worry about as she will handle it from their end.

          Sorry, long time never stop by to visit here. Please read my reply to other early about step to getting marriage certification done. Malaysia marriage registration is for Malaysian (anyone as long as one partner is Malaysian) as it main function is to record and allow one to obtain visa for long term stay and for the children to obtain citizenship which is important paper for them to live in malaysia. If you are a foreigner want to married to Myanmar citizen. Malaysia government won’t do any thing for you or have any business on this matter as it between your government and your partner country. If you can’t get any paper endorsed by Myanmar embassy, it ok as one can still obtain a court paper stating that paper is correct and you are single and haven’t married before or if divorce, all paper is settle and in order – I think it will cost you RM10/=. If one are too lazy to get this paper drafted, just pay the many petition writer/commisiener of oath to do it. Just stand by RM50/= to RM100/=. for their service. After getting all that paper. Just check it out at JPN, bring along two photo for filling up the form. Hope this clear up any question on paper as the main reason is for legal record, example when you married a divorcee with children from previous marriage. That paper will allow you to obtain visa for the children who will stay with you. Reminded for Malaysian only. Don’t skip the JPN registration by doing a traditional wedding at temple/church etc. You need that paper for your children future and for going back to Myanmar. I hear Myanmar government now have facility for PR application and long term visa stay for spouse.

    The issue is getting married in Australia. Get the marriage certificate endorsed by your MOFA (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), and then your embassy in Myanmar and you can apply for the long stay visa, if your plan is to stay in Myanmar.

    There are ways..
    In fact is : there is a book registry in the courts on Strand road full of foreign and local marriages that have been registered. And yes they can get notarized and translated.
    The thing is that The laws governing marriage here are disputable and it’s not sure if they can be applied to foreigners. Be careful marrying a local woman, the laws are extremely biased towards them. You could end up with a woman that is jealous, attack you, abuse you and have absolutely no rights as a foreigner here. Do not take marriage with a Myanmar woman lightly..

      My Name is charlie..I never believed in Love Spells or Magics until I met this special spell caster when i contact this man called Execute some business..He is really powerful..My wife divorce me with no reason for almost 4 years and i tried all i could to have her back cos i really love her so much but all my effort did not work out.. we met at our early age at the college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 5 years with no kid and she woke up one morning and she told me she’s going on a divorce..i thought it was a joke and when she came back from work she tender to me a divorce letter and she packed all her loads from my house..i ran mad and i tried all i could to have her back but all did not work out..i was lonely for almost 4 years…So when i told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for her full name and her picture..i gave him that..At first i was skeptical but i gave it a try cos have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution…so when he finished with the readings,he got back to me that she’s with a man and that man is the reason why she left me…The spell caster said he will help me with a spell that will surely bring her back.but i never believe all this…he told me i will see a positive result within 3 days..3 days later,she called me herself and came to me apologizing and she told me she will come back to me..I cant believe this,it was like a dream cos i never believe this will work out after trying many spell casters and there is no solution..The spell caster is so powerful and after that he helped me with a pregnancy spell and my wife got pregnant a month later..we are now happy been together again and with lovely kid..This spell caster has really changed my life and i will forever thankful to him..he has helped many friends too with similar problem too and they are happy and thankful to him..This man is indeed the most powerful spell caster have ever experienced in life..Am Posting this to the Forum in case there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way can reach him here:

      Hi Ms Nuch,

      I have seen Ur post since sometime ago n since no 1 reply let me give u my small idea n suggestion.

      I do understand u, I have no right idea about how u need to deal with the situation of u right now but I would advice you to following 2 ways to tried out

      1) approach the local immigration officer together with the household registration documents and some supporting document (saying that u have been living at Thailand together with Ur parents since long time ago) from local people or if possible get from local police station (if possible) and then apply for Ur citizenship

      2) another thing is u can contact the UNHCR camp at Thailand and see whether they allow u to register as Myanmar refugee

      I do hope my advice would be helpful. I wish u all the best.

      Best Regards


    • WYA
      September 23, 2014 at 12:28 pm

      Hi Ms Nuch ,

      John here n I understand u. Here is my little thoughts

      1) try to contact the local relevant office and ask what option they can offer or perhaps u can submitfollowing documents to the relevant office and apply for Ur citizenship ,
      a) household registration letter
      b) some support document or witness frm local ppl who use to know u for a long time

      2) alternatively u can contact to UNHCR office at Thailand and register as Burmese refugees

      Hope u will get some idea.

      I wish u all the best

      Best Regards

She is Myanmar and I am from the UK. We are both working and resident in Yangon and have been together over a year.

    I’m a westerner that got married with a burmese girl in Yangon march this year. We went to a judge with a third burmese person that guaranteed for me (specifically my wife’s uncle) and after I declared officially to be buddist. that’s the trick, then translated the act in english, got the stamp from the foreign affair minister and regularly registered the marriage to my country embassy. good luck to everyone!
