Singaporeans who intend to marry Cambodians should check with the relevant Cambodian authorities on the rules and procedures on marriage registration in Cambodia.
It is likely that the Cambodian authorities will require an official Singapore letter stating their single status.
The Embassy is unable to issue such a letter because Singapore regulations do not require Singaporeans who register their marriages overseas to re-register their marriage in Singapore. Singapore regulations also do not require Singaporeans who marry overseas to inform the Embassy.
Singaporeans may however perform a search of the Singapore Civil Marriage Register or Singapore Muslim Marriage Register (for Muslims) and obtain a print-out of the search. This search may be conducted online and the result of the search will be returned immediately. Alternatively Singaporeans may also perform the search at the self-service kiosks of the Registry of Marriages (ROM) or Registry of Muslim Marriages (ROMM) located in Singapore. Do note that a fee is levied for this service and payment for online search must be through credit card or eNets.
Results of searches conducted at the self-service kiosks at ROM or ROMM will be cerified and endorsed with the official seal of ROM or ROMM accordingly. For searches perfored online (which can be printed but without official signature or seal), ROM or ROMM will send another formal letter on their letterhead with the search results.
Please visit the following ROM and ROMM websites for more information or to perform the online search.
Registry of Marriages
Registry of Muslim Marriages
The Embassy may endorse on the official ROM or ROMM letter confirming the result of the search if the Singaporean so wishes.
