Where does a Witness come in a Marriage Registration?
Two witnesses are needed for your solemnization. The details of the witnesses, that is their names as in their NRIC and their NRIC numbers, are needed at the point of filing the application for registration of marriage. They do not need to be present when you file your application. However, their presence is needed on the day of solemnization.

If there are changes to your witnesses' details or there is a change of witness, you will need to inform the Registry personally at least 7 days before your marriage. If you have made an on-line application, you may change your witnesses' details here.
