  • how she can contact you and how much its can be cost till i have my visa ?
  • edited May 2014
    I just gave you my website, all my contact details email, telephone, fax etc are on

  • I am a bona fide lawyer and to quote fees on an internet forum would be unprofessional. As with any lawyer fees are discussed in private with the client, just ask your fiancee to contact my office.
  • I suggest your fiance gets in touch by email or over the phone. That way she can discuss the specifics of your problem and see if Alethia can help you. There's only so much personal information you want to post on the internet!
  • Hi Alethia
    i hope u r in a good health
    i wanna ask u a question and i hope i can find the answer
    my gf from iceland she is with me in tunisia she bring all the papers to marry here but when we go to marry that say i need to have permission to marry how is that? from where i can have it
  • Hi Kamal.
    Without knowing exactly what was said to you it is difficult. Did you go to the notary and obtain a notarised certificate that you were free to marry? How old are you? Did the marriage office not explain what papers you need? You need to go back and ask what documents you need and why. Then I can help you further
  • Also you may have to go to the Embasy of Iceland in tunisia I had to go to the Embassy of the united states in tunisia
  • Most foreigners have to go to their respective embassy but in this instance the poster is a Tunisian citizen who is saying he needs permission to marry.
  • Hello,
    I am Tunisian men. I have a Ukrainian fiancee and I intend to
    bring her to Tunisia. I am planning to marry her. She is in the process
    to prepare her documents legalized in Ukraine. But before I bring her, I
    want to know how she will come : with tourist visa or I send an
    invitation letter to her and what should I put in the invitation letter?
    Best regards,
  • Ukrainian citizens can enter Tunisia visa free if they are travelling on an organised tour from a travel agent with a hotel booking. 
    If she travels alone and not on a package holiday then she must apply for a visa so I suggest she comes on a package holiday its a lot less fuss.
  • hi everyone :) does anyone know how much it will cost to have a cheap wedding in Algeria ? and what laws are involved ?
  • edited June 2014
    Surely the best person to ask about Algerian weddings and their cost is your intended husband/wife. Algerians like to spend money on weddings and like most middle eastern weddings the whole family or village are invited no such thing as a guest list
  • need to get a new certificate de naissance, no older than 21 days before you marry. It must be certified. You must have your tak tareef. This is all you need, however your fiancee must have what is called certificate of no impediment to marry. She can have this from her embassy, it must be translated and certified
  • Hello my name is Alisha and i will meet my fiancée in tunisia. He has dual citizenship of algeria and france. I am an american citizen. I have been previously married in Egypy and now i am divorced, the papers are located in Egypt (since he divorced me in Egypt). I am not sure what to do. I have two questions regarding these issues: 1. Could i possibly get a visa to algeria in tunisia or Egypt? 2. What are the rules of marriage for my situation? :)

  • You cannot marry anywhere until you have your divorce papers.

  • Hello, alethia. I m a malaysian and will be married with a tunisian boyfriend soon. What documents I need to have. Can I stay in tunis with his sponsor.
  • edited August 2014
    If your boyfriend is Tunisian why does he have a sponsor and who is this person?

    To marry in Tunisia you will require the following documents.
     1, A document from the Malaysian government that confirms you are free to marry. This statutory declaration is normally done at the Malaysian Embassy in the country where you will marry, but there is no Malaysian Embassy in Tunisia.
    2 Your birth certificate
    3 Your passport
    4 If you been married before you will need your divorce certificate or death certificate if your previous spouse died.
    These documents must be translated to French or Arabic when you arrive in Tunisia for the wedding. The Bureau de l’Etat Civil a la Municipalite will tell you where to translate and notarise your documents.

    Your fiance can go to the Bureau de l’Etat Civil a la Municipalite and ask them what you need to do and how to book the wedding.
    Hundreds of foreigners marry in Tunisia every year so the Bureau de l’Etat Civil a la Municipalite can give you all the answers.

  • Tq. I will be arriving on early August. is there any problem if I going alone? My boyfriend will meet me in the airport and after he will bring me to his home town in bou arada stay with his family.
    We meet in Malaysia for about 1 year and last month he going back to for Ramadan. Now he prefer to stay in ariana, so he want me to live in Tunisia.
  • I don't know anyone in Tunisia and don't know their languages. I just can share everything with my boyfriend only because he understand English.
    Is that a problem for me going to stay there?
  • A lot of people there in Tunisia knows English there is a lot of great people at least where I went there was

    How I take date for marriage
  • edited July 2014
    Abdesalemzanati. Hope you will get all your documents as soon as possible.
  • Aini,

    you will not have any problems to live in Ariana. It is a big town not far from the centre of our capital Tunis. Lots of shops etc. Dont worry about the language, you can find many institutions teaching French and Arabic. If you need some help you can be in touch with me, it is not a problem.
  • Abd.....mabrouk. First for you, certificate de naissance not more than 21 days old before date of marriage, tuk tariff and passport if you have one. Your certificate de naissance should be certifi ied by the beladiya. For your fiancee, she must have original birth certificate not more than 21 days before date of marriage, certificate of no impediment to marry from her embassy, her divorce papers, passport. All these must be translated and certified. Do this here in Tunis as it is much cheaper. As for date of marriage, that is up to you, but it is easy, you can be married in municipality or you can have notaire come to your house and have the soiree afterwards.

  • Aini No I am in America but If I didn't have daughter I would be there forever.  I am hoping to go soon to be with my husband in October Inshallah.  Just for a couple months but when he gets his passport we will Bill doing Visa to get him here.  We got married In his City on March the 3rd of this year and it was wonderful we had celabration and all that I felt like a Queen with everyone they all love me there and I feel so blessed with all my new family There is Tunisia..  SO I wish the best for you AINI and your new soon to be Husband all the happiness in the rest of your lifes INSHALLAH!!!!! If you want to keep in touch it would be nice to know how things turn out thats if you want.  This picture I have on here is of us in our Celabration.  :D
  • Hello i am Tunisia and i wanna get married with my girlfriend resident in Ireland please can someone help me about information for this marriage
    she live in southern irland 
    please I want all documents for me and for my girlfriend
  • Aini, Tunisia is a small country compared to Malaysia and not so sophisticated but Tunisian people in my experience are kind , generous and warm hearted. Many people speak English and you will be welcomed wholeheartedly. I have had some lovely times in Tunisia and I wish you well in your marriage.

    You never did answer my question , what you meant by his sponsor.
  • edited July 2014
    The sponsor mean is. I only have a 90 days visa stay in tunisia once I arrived. After 90 days , if I want to stay longer period in Tunisia, my boyfriend is a tunisian. He can use his identity card to sponsor me for extend my visa or not?So, I no need to go back Malaysia every 3 month.

    Hello i am Tunisia and i wanna get married with my girlfriend resident in Ireland please can someone help me about information for this marriageshe live in southern irland please I want all documents for me and for my girlfriendthanks
  • Abd.....I think I already answered this, maybe on another thfead? Okay, first for you you need new certificate de naissance issued no more than 21 days from date of marriage, it should be certified at the beladya, it is cheap. You will also need your taq tariff and a copy of both sides which should also be certified and your passport if you hsve one. Your fiancee needs original birth certificate no more than 21 days old from date of marriage, certificate of no impediment to marry which she can get from her embassy in her home country. She must also have her original divorce papers. All these must be translated and certified, but do it here in tunis as it is much cheaper.
  • Aini, once you are married your husband should take you to the police station with your papers and organise a carte de sejour. In the first instance this will be temporary for 3 months snd after that you can have residency issued for 2 years and every 2 years.

    The 3 major mobile phone networks here are Telecom, Tunisiana (Ooredoo), and Orange. All of them will work well in Ariana. Your fian e has Tunisiana number.
  • Thanks Lesley
