  • Noura - perhaps they didn't understand you correctly, you were confused and they were probably trying to help you. You can have your papers translated here in Tunisia very cheaply and quickly. Coffee sounds good!!
  • Noura - I did forget also to tell you that the Tunisian embassy anywhere cannot help with your husband's application for a visa. Tunisia is not a part of Croatia the last time I looked!! As Alethia tells you he must go to the Embassy of Croatia in…
  • Noura - please listen and take the advice of Alethia! She is correct in her advice to you. You do not need to do anything with the Tunisian embassy anywhere!! Your marriage is legally recognised by majority of countries. Your marriage is noted o…
  • Jasond - there are some brilliant expat forums on the web just google and you will find some very good ones. If you want specific information on specific countries then I can assist with some but you should let me know exactly the country required.…
  • Just clarification - both will need blood tests....a visit to the doctor will provide authorisation for these and will be done the same day by the pathology (which are everywhere)!! You then take the results back to the doctor who will check and au…
  • Oh Ann and I forgot to tell you that you that there is no way to register your marriage in the UK but it is considered a legal marriage there. You can send them your marriage certificate but it is only filed not registered. You can still divorce i…
  • Ann - there are no companies here that handle divorce. You can do it very cheaply with a notaire but you will have to attend the court. If you do it with a notaire it shouldn't cost more than tnd150-200. If you use a solicitor then it should not…
  • ghost - my opinion that the weather in mid October is the best. Still hot, water very warm, balmy nights!! The best
  • Lauren - I concur with Alethia and you should know that your name is on his birth certificate as his divorced wife!!! It will remain there.
  • ljnmark - I can't tell you if it a good hotel never having stayed there - oh and I presume you mean the Amir in Skanes/Monastir?? I had a look on Trip Advisor and they have a majority excellent. Depends what you want from a hotel as to what you ge…
    in Tunisia Comment by Lesley February 13
  • You can communicate via email - what are your questions please
  • Lauren - for your ex husband to re-marry in Tunisia he must have a new birth certificate on which will be notification of his divorce from you. Both of you are free to marry again
  • Hi JasonD - I would not recommend vacation after November in Tunisia. We get very cold to be honest as we get a lot of bad weather over the Med from Europe. If you are decided to come in December then I would choose Sousse or Hammamet as this give…
  • Because they are desparate!!
  • Lauren - if you divorced him in the UK you do not need to divorce him in Tunisia. Do you honestly think he can marry again whilst still being married to you?? You are not legally married in Tunisia
  • Laura - are you crazy?? Why would you want to marry another Tunisian given the history. There is no way he could divorce you against his will. Did you receive dox, did you agree? I don't believe this story for one minute and if you are wanting t…
  • Vanaessa - depends how much you want to spend! Here the sky is the limit. You can pay as little as tnd100 to the notaire for the contract and have couscous afterwards. If you think to go the whole hog and have henna night, contract night, then th…
  • Apologies Alethia - I thought leila2015 was here in Tunisia.
  • Herts - well from Bizerte it is an easy 40min louage (shared car) into Tunis capitol. You can discover the ancient souq, the medina (old city) and the kasbah. Some great coffee places and restaurants and you can picnic in the beautiful gardens. Y…
  • Leila2015 - you can do the divorce yourself but you need a notaire to organise court dates etc. You don't need a lawyer but if you need one then use one referred by your embassy here in Tunisia. It will take longer than a week believe me!! You wi…
  • Lorenza - we don't have a metro and I don't recommend taking the trains however, buses and trams are great. Taxis are cheap and good to get around the city centre. If you want to travel to another city then I recommend you take a louage which are …
  • Ok people, let's all calm down. I respect everyone's right to their own personal preferences so won't pass judgement or comment. Hertsnflowers, nudity is not a huge thing here, it is in the very touristique hotels but those who like to exhibit the…
  • Alethia - wishing you and your loved ones also a joyful and happy New Year
  • Hi Lorenza...............welcome to Tunis. Yes you will be safe here, it is a wonderful country. There is a lot of things to see and do around Tunis especially Carthage, the Bardo museum, the Kasbah and the souq. You will not have a problem filli…
  • To be honest, I give hundreds of women advice every day on these questions. If I don't give the answers they want to hear I don't hear from them again! C'est la vie - I don't sugar coat, so I'm sorry Theresay if you don't like our answers but we a…
  • No, I guess the thought of visas etc was not uppermost in the mind.  I wish her luck but from my reading of the political situation it will be even harder for visas from my part of the world.
  • Theresay - did you not think to check all this BEFORE you got married???
  • Jooana - your tour operator will give you the departure time from Marrakech, however, if you are travelling as a private person, the buses do not necessarily keep to the departure times. The last time I did this trip we waited for 2 hours and the t…
  • thanks so much Ella
  • Thanks Ella. Ah, David and I got on very well, it's a shame he has left. I am having no success getting into my private messages, it tells me page not found. Hope you can fix that one as well.
