Here's my step by step guide for reference.
Items with check is for my own reference.

The main criteria is of course a solemnisation held outside ROM office.

1: Get a solemniser


Ensure that his name is still valid under the list of licensed solemniser.
There are 3 main categories: grassroot leader, justice of peace and additional solemniser.

2. Check eligibility
Special conditions if you are below 21 years of age.
CHECKVerification and Statutory Declaration: Both of you are required to come to ROM on the scheduled date and time.

3. What to prepare

NRIC (Identity Card) / Passports of 2 witnesses above 21 years of age

Witness can be anyone and no restriction on nationality.

CHECK:Verification and Statutory Declaration: Both of you are required to come to ROM on the scheduled date and time.

4. Time

The earliest and latest date you may solemnise your marriage is after expiration of 21 days and before expiration of 3 months respectively of notice given.
