5. Marriage Records
For marriage records search you are required to submit an application to the National Archives of Singapore. To ascertain whether we can assist you, please complete the attached ‘Request for Marriage Records’ form and fax it to us at (65) 6332 3238, or scan a copy and email it to us. State full names, date of marriage and any other details that you have, such as the name of the church if the marriage took place in a church. This will enable us to determine if we are able to conduct a search. If your information allows us to make a search, a search fee is chargeable regardless of whether the marriage record is found after the search. Normally, we will let you know of the outcome of the search within 7 working days of receiving your agreement to carry out the search and receipt of search fee.
The search fee is S$35.00 (excluding GST). Upon receiving your completed form, we will provide you with payment details if a search can be done.
For marriages conducted in a church, we require those who wish to obtain records of church marriages, to first obtain authorisation letters from the relevant church to allow searches to be made.
