  • @LookingForLove - you were here for 1 month in Sousse, a tourist city!! Please don't tell me you understand this country, these people and this culture after only 1 month, that is totally impossible. Visiting as a tourist and living here are very …
  • @Alethia @mariahamza - perhaps the visa was for a 1 time visit??

  • @mozak @CheersTerry - interesting in that Tunisian families in the majority would not give permission to their daughter to marry a Saudian and certainly not to go live there............unless he was very, very rich!!!
  • Delete your f/b page and make another............simples!!! Take the advice of @Alethia and @CheersTerry. He can do nothing to you.

  • @tkellis - well just be prepared...........the life you describe is not difficult in Tunisian terms believe me. Here the struggle is to find the money to feed a family. Living day to day is the hardest thing here so your life to a Tunisian would s…
  • @tkellis. My first question is 'have you ever visited Tunisia?' Life can be difficult here even for the locals. You certainly will need trusted tunisian friends to help you manage. I presume you have Arabic? We use a dialect here that barely res…
  • @Thankfull - I have a friend who works as a teacher in Kuwait. She is a primary teacher from Australia. However, she is also Arabic so has language skills. She needed to be invited by the school and also to have a diploma in education. It is not…
  • @Canadian1982 - as @Alethia says, it depends on the office and the clerk at the time! You just have to go with the flow here, that is how it works lol
  • @Canadian1982, two witnesses are required, they can be 2 males or 1 male and 1 female but not 2 females. You can use sisters but not the parents I believe. They can organise the witnesses for you, family friends or other relatives not a problem. …
  • @Jushama - I have to agree with @Alethia. It is now a lot harder to gain tourist visas in general for entry to Tunisia. They will not answer your query to be totally honest! You could try again, but as @Alethia says there is no guarantee for a fu…
  • @carole123 - you should also know that the Tunisian dinar is a closed currency meaning that it can't be exchanged!! Also the banks do not issue statements as they do in the UK. He has to physically go to the bank and request them to print off a st…
  • @absjess - I have heard in the last few days that Algerians (along with some others) may now require visas for entry to Tunisia. I am trying to find out whether this is correct or not, but you should definitely check with the Embassy in London to f…
  • @Ploy - your husband needs to go to the municipality and provide the marriage certificate. This will then be noted on his birth certificate. That is the only legalisation he needs. You need to have the marriage contract translated (if it in Frenc…
  • @ploy - your husband must have a copy of this marriage certificate?? It should also be noted on his birth certificate. Your husband should be able to sponsor you as his wife. It's not that difficult really.
  • Basically you can take any food into Tunisia. You don't need to declare it, but you know that there is great fresh food here. We have great fresh food markets and big supermarkets. We are quite developed. Has he asked you to take anything in par…
  • @Alethia - hmmmmm!!!
  • @nazilicious - so you asked a 'British' lawyer. Is he aware of the laws of Tunisia. @Alethia is giving you the correct information! It is much easier to marry in Tunisia if your fiance brings his British papers - believe me!! The Turkish dox can…
  • @pedro_tun - normally the bureau de poste in your area will have a section for Fedex/quick mail etc. If you can't see the desk then just ask which one it is!! They will give you the envelope to address, they will give you a receipt which will have…
  • @pedro_tun - if you send the invitation by Fedex (not the quick post), you can request signature c.o.d. You can then track the dox on the Fedex website and see the signature. This will be the proof. In any case you are going to have to do 3 invit…
  • @pedro_tun - the notaire should have sent the invitation by Fedex and have the receipt signed by your wife. This should be given to the court as it is proof of the invitation. Even they refuse the divorce you can still apply for a 2nd court hearin…
  • @mariahamza - your friend will need exactly the same dox as any other nationality. Please see the thread - Documents needed for marriage in Tunisia. Here you will find all the information you need. If you have further questions then I'll be happ…
  • @johnlandis - you don't need a monthly income but you must bring into the country an amount equivalent to tnd10,000 annually. You also need to prove that you can support yourself as there are no facilities for 'welfare' for foreigners.
  • Hi Mozak. Yes you will still need a visa but it will be easier for you now to get it. As the spouse of a Tunisian national you should be sponsored by your wife and or her family. Her father can do this and advise that you will stay in the family …
  • @tiffany - actually I try very hard to help all sorts of people of every gender from every nation around the world. I live in Tunisia, it is my home, it is where I live and I like very much to encourage all to visit. However, I will not hold back …
  • Praying for peace on this tiny blob in a huge universe. Happy holidays to all
  • @mariahhamza - you need to be mighty careful. In Islam the father is considered the rightful parent and guardian of the children of the marriage whether the wife is Muslim or not. He can get a passport for this yet to be born child and take it bac…
  • @xtinesam - you are wrong in that Australia is the cheapest option!! Our medical costs are very, very expensive and unless a citizen holds private health insurance the waiting list is extremely long............as a visitor you will be asked to pay …
  • @xtinesam - ok so given that you have family in Australia (if that is true) you will never get a visa! Australia considers this the biggest threat to visa overstay! Sorry but those are the facts.
  • @xtinesam - I'm laughing sorry! Have you read the requirements for asylum in Australia? Have you read the requirements for medical treatment? Why would you want to come to Australia- it's probably the furthest country from where you live!!
