I am nervous. I mean there is no turning back after this. This is the real deal. We are getting married in less than 150 days!
I would prepare to gather the important details days ahead so I would not be panicking during registration. You can apply online or visit ROMM itself. The former is much more convenience. Also, I enter all the details to a notepad and copy paste it, so I would not make any mistakes during the process. Together, I have sum up useful tips from a fellow BTBs – Kefreen Hyda, Masita and also mine, on how to register your solemnisation with ease.
Days prior registration:
- Launch Registry of Muslim Marriages (ROMM) website on Internet Explorer
- Verify on the site for the exact date to register within the 150 days
- Gather all details and documents required and save it to a notepad
- Date, time and location of Solemnisation (Nikah)
- Bride + Groom personal details (Name, Address, NRIC, Occupation, Income)
- Wali’s personal details (Name & NRIC)
- 2 male witnesses personal details (Name & NRIC)
- Hantaran amount (Marriage expense)
- Mas Kawin (Mahr)
- Marriage Preparation Course
- Narrow down top three chosen Kadi/Naib Kadi(s)
- $39 of registration fee for local
- Set alarm a day before the registration date (150 days)
- Set a bookmark of the ROMM website to the IE browser
- Launch ROMM website on IE (Internet Explorer)
- Copy paste the details gathered & select where necessary
- Verify all details before submitting
- Pay $39 of fees using eNETS (Mastercard or Visa)
Congratulations! Now you can breathe at least until 5 weeks before your solemnisation day for the ROMM interview.
