I am a UK national who is looking to marry Turkish boyfriend in Turkey early next year (Feb/Mar) 2015. We both live and work in North Cyprus.
1. Can we go to Istanbul and obtain the Affidavit/Affirmation and get it certified there even if we dont reside in TUrkey? If not where will I have to go to get it?
2. How long will a Affidavit/Affirmation issued in Istanbul be valid for? (we want to try and get it this month as we are both restricted for time off work)
3. Do we need any other documents translated and certified (some websites say yes and some dont mention any)
4. If we need other document do we also have to do this in Istanbul, if so where, or can we do it in North Cyprus or locally to where we get married?
Any advice greatfully received.
Just for future reference I have spoken to the High Commission in Nicosia and as I thought they do not process Affidavits. They have over the last year reduced many of their services including processing of passport renewels and visa applications. In fact I am not quite sure what they do actually do anymore.
So I guess its a trip to Istanbul in the next few weeks. Depending on how long the Affidavit is valid for.
