Marriage in Indonesia requires a religious ceremony. Indonesian law requires that both parties must be of the same religion and the marriage must conform to the laws of the countries of the parties involved. The KUA will issue a Marriage Book (Buku Nikah), which is evidence of a legally valid marriage with a Muslim.
