I am a Chinese man holding Malaysia citizenship and I would like to marry an Iranian girl who is Muslim now. However, the Iranian girl does not mind following my religion as Buddhist as she does not really practice Islam in her own country.

a) How do we get marry legally in Malaysia without violating any Islam law assuming she changes to Buddhist?

b) How can she change her Islam religion to Buddhist?

c) After our marriage, how can she become a resident of Malaysia? How difficult for her to become a resident knowing she was a Muslim convert to non-Muslim? What process and how long do we have to wait? What is the chance of success? Any previous successful case?

d) Let's say in the first two year of marriage, she is still not yet a resident as I can foresee it will take sometime but we intend to have kids during the first two years. Will the kids have problem obtaining Malaysia citizenship?

I seriously need some help here. Thanks a lot to your advice.

I am an Iranian! Until today there is no possible way to register your marriage with an Iranian, unless either you both are Muslims, or Malaysian party which is not convert, or both are non-Muslims and you are required to prove that you are not Muslim with a certificate from Iranian Embassy or government, which is a mission impossible!

I went to Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) and tried many different ways, those are the conclusions! But there is another way and that is to register your marriage in third country! Nevertheless, impossible is nothing, never lose your hope...

If anyone has new information or done the marriage I would be happy to know that though... but anyway, good luck peeps!

You're right man. I have posted here last year but I didn't get any answers from Cindy.

I tried almost all possible ways for 3 years and that cost me money and time and no results in the end. Well it is much easier if you register your marriage in Iran.

At this moment Iranian can't do anything in Malaysia and it's just wasting money and time. Kind of sucks. Please DO NOT try any agency to register your marriage or working permit or any visa as they will cheat your money only and you may not get back your passport. Leave the country that really has nothing to offer and none of them cares about it. Save your self and your family. Good luck!

Even though you want to do it in Iran it's a bit complicated about converting and plus you can't register as NON-MUSLIM marriage. But anyhow there might be a way!

You can register your marriage in Singapore easily but so far as I know, once you want to re-register your marriage in Malaysia to be recognised and your spouse can get a visa, you will face some problems. You'll need to provide the letter from the Iran Government or Embassy to prove that your spouse is not a Muslim! And you have to bring the documents to the Malaysian High Commissioner in Singapore as well for some approval thingy! Then only Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) will recognize your certificate.

Hope my information will be enough, and these are so far all my personal experiences so that somebody can use it for free.

I know that marriage registration in Iran is way easier than in Malaysia! But for your info the Iranian Embassy will help to register your marriage in Malaysia as well. You need to go there and ask them for help and the will direct you to the possible way. Well I tried it very late and leaving Malaysia in a very bad way without my family. Such a shame. Go to the Embassy they will help you with any matter.

@pouria was right. I've been to the Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (JPN) few times, once with my lawyer. There is NO WAY to register a marriage with an Iranian if you are not converted to Muslim! If you want to live in Malaysia, after registering your marriage in third country you still need to re-register in Malaysia, which means u will face the same problem. The ONLY WAY is to convert to Muslim or move to other country and register there. Good luck guys!

Thanks for such a great topic. I am engaged to a Chinese Malaysian girl and we decided to register. We are really confused and we need information. My fiance doesn't mind converting, however I really don't want her to convert, but her only problem is the name. Can somebody answer my two questions?

1) Must she change her name after converting here in Malaysia?
2) What about we register in Thailand and come back here and I claim that I am not a Muslim?

Firstly being Iranian, she must be Shi Ite Muslim. They are not recognized in Malaysia as being Muslims. They are referred to as deviants and heretics. Malaysia's Muslims are Sunnis (not to be mistaken for the Tamil word sunni which means something else).

Marry her and be happy. If the government tries to do anything extreme remember this the Iranian government is not a government to play with.

wow.. love makes one sacrifice for love.. 

True.. love is blind
But it is only the two lovebirds that is blissful for the time being

The children born from this unique union suffers from identity crises
Unless very rich, untold other problems surface.
