  • @Nabzoo, @Alethia is correct when she advises that as a Sth African passport holder you can have your visa on arrival into Tunis. Once you arrive your fiance should register you with the local police station and apply immediately for your carte de …
  • @9619695255 - I have just re-read your last post and you seem quite the hypocrite to me. You want a Tunisian girl as your second wife but you expect her to work?? (you want her to get a work visa). Yes there are problems in Tunisia - she will be …
  • @Alethia @9619695255 - I have no words!! I am in shock.
  • @9619695255 - I honestly don't understand you. Firstly you have little or no chance of having a visa to come to Tunisia. If you manage to marry either here or in another country where are you intending to live? I do understand the law in regard t…
  • @Beanie1965 @Alethia - I know of this lawyer and what I know is not good. He wanted to charge an English lady I know Tnd3,000 for something that a notaire can do. He has very bad reviews!! And why would you send money to someone you don't know. …
  • @aslansglow - repost?? Just go to the thread and read it!
  • @aslansglow - @Alethia is correct. Your birth certificate must not be older than 21 days. It needs to be an original also and then translated into Arabic/French. Also note that unless your boyfriend is already resident in Tunisia or older than …
  • @myard - even if you are only working on a USAid project then you have the power! As @Alethia advises start the fight. There is no such thing as political correctness here so don't be nice or polite, kick up a fuss and threaten to leave. You'll s…
  • @myard - everything goes slowly here in the summer. Most banks, govt. offices etc work shorter hours. We start earlier in the morning but most are closed in the early afternoon. There will be a backlog for sure. However, if you are employed by U…
  • My bucket list musts are: Cuba (sorry @CheersTerry ) always wanted to go but never made it. Mongolia, Russia and on top of my list is.....drum roll.........Afghanistan. Yes I know I'm crazy!
  • So now you can start to understand this crazy Tunisia!! We do anything for money lol!! You can definitely extend your visa and your client here can even help you with it, but whether they will assist you is a decision for them. Overstay and pay t…
  • @arsenaldoll - Tunisia is my home now. I have been here for a long time and I feel happy here. I have been a nomad for a very long time and like @Alethia lived in a lot of countries. But now my feet have found their place.
  • @arsenaldoll - don't be scared in Australia! I am an Aussie but now live in North Africa. Australia is a wonderful country, majority of people are warm and friendly, the system is easy to work out and the culture, well it is multi-cultural. The C…
  • @azam513 - when you arrive at the airport to depart you must buy a foreigner departure tax stamp. Then when you go to immigration they will demand the fine - you will have to go to a special office, pay exactly what they demand and they will give y…
  • @azam513 - why will you visit often? You may be eligible for a carte de sejour which will alleviate the problem of a visa each time. Please tell me your nationality and I will advise. Please don't think that we are a bit nuffnuff here. When mone…
  • @shaby - in order for you to migrate your wife - especially to Australia - your wife must hold at least permanent residency and show that she has the ability to support herself and you!! It is not easy for an Indonesian to have even a visa to visit…
  • @azam513 - go to the police station the day you arrive. Sometimes you can find English spoken by the police in the capital Tunis, but to be on the safe side you should take an interpreter.
  • @azam513 - you need to go to the police station to have your visa extended. What is your nationality?
  • @marcsi - as I explained previously, your fiance is highly unlikely to gain entry into Tunisia. He hasn't 'retired' he has done his conscripted time. Why can't you marry in Algeria??
  • @mariahamza @marcsi - you need to understand that your marriage is registered in the municipality where you live!!
  • @marcsi - unfortunately your fiance will be denied entry to Tunisia. As a young Algerian male (who mainly come here to find work) he will be turned around at the border. Your fiance must know this?
  • @marcsi - give some more information pls. Did you marry in Tunisia or will you marry? Why do you need the name of a registrar? Also please let me have your nationality so I can provide you with some answers.
  • @mariah - I can't even imagine that you would even consider this!! To take a baby anywhere at that age is crazy and to go to Algeria..........there is no decent healthcare and the hospitals?? Well you do know that they are not hygienic and I can v…
  • @Terridor - you can change your privacy settings!
  • @Terridor - yes this is a scam and as previously stated you did not actually 'meet' anyone! Don't get dragged into this.
  • @Alethia @nadiabaaroun1973 - yes that is correct, this law was passed, however, like everything in Tunisia if the child's father objects then there can be problems! Someone I helped got a letter of permission from a Judge..............that certainl…
  • @nadiabaaroun1973 @Alethia - Agree 110% with Alethia. No matter what you think you want to do your ex-husband has rights also. And to be perfectly brutal I would not want my ex and child living in Cairo right at this moment. And he has every righ…
  • @midovic - your fiancee bring all her papes to Tunisia. You go to the translator and he will translate into Arabic or French. He will also certify and stamp that it is a correct translation. Then you can take all the papers to the municipality wh…
  • @Alethia - you are an amazing person!!!!!!!!
  • You need to have your birth certificate. You must have one!! You can apply for it at the embassy of the country of your birth.
