    You should reference the Indonesian embassy for the country of which you are a citizen for this information.

    Look here for legal and other information:
    expat.or.id/info/mixmarriage...

    Where do you want to go live with her, in Indonesia or in your own country? If you want to avoid the peculiarities of Indonesian law, consider marrying in your won country.

    Kabeeni, having personally gone through what you are asking about many years ago, the suggestions above are excellent…consult expert advice.

    For the sake of your Indonesian wife to be, especially if you’re not planning on having children with her, you must engage in a pre-nuptial agreement. This is particularly essential if you as a couple plan to purchase any land in Indonesia, which would only be legal through your wife.

    In the end it isn’t that difficult or complex for a foreigner to marry an Indonesian, but it’s vitally important for each of you to have all the legal requirements in order.
