For the American Partner Japanese woman

This is a notarial service. You will need to make an appointment.

Do not use erasable pens to fill out the Affidavit.

You do not need to bring your non-U.S. citizen fiance/fiancee.

You can download the blank affidavit form here  (PDF 158KB). You should use this form if you are planning to marry someone who is not a U.S. citizen. The form has two pages, one to be completed in English and the other to be used to translate the English page into Japanese. The consular officer will notarize only the English language document.

If your partner is also an American, s/he must also complete a sworn Affidavit of Competency to Marry at the Embassy or consulate. Use this form  (PDF 77 KB) in the case of two Americans marrying one another. The form has two pages, one to be completed in English and the other to be used to translate the English page into Japanese. The consular officer will notarize only the English language document.

These forms are required by Japanese law and are not a requirement of the U.S. Government. No registration of your legal marriage abroad is required by the U.S. Government, and your foreign (i.e. Japanese) partner need not come to our offices.

You will need to bring your U.S. passport and the $50 notarial fee.

Once this is signed and sealed at the Embassy or one of our Consulates, this Affidavit is valid for three months.

Member of the Armed Forces should contact their on-base legal office and/or chain of command for proper procedures.

This is the part of this whole procedure that actually makes you and your partner married.

Once all the paperwork above is completed, proceed to the appropriate Japanese municipal government office to submit your Kon-in Todoke. Be sure to confirm local marriage procedures and rules directly with municipal government officials. (For example, depending on the jurisdiction, you may be required to submit a certified copy of your birth certificate and its Japanese translation.

Getting a Marriage Certificate issued by the U.S. government

The U.S. Government does not issue marriage certificates for marriages performed overseas. Your Japanese marriage document will be the only proof of your marriage. If anyone (i.e. Japanese Immigration) asks for your “marriage certificate issued by your own government,” there will be none.
