  • Do a search on this forum and you will find literally hundreds of answers to your questions. If you still need help then I will be happy to reply
  • Jack - there is so much more to see than Botswana or Cape Town. Do some research and you will find many, many beautiful sites, cities etc. And remember that Africa is not just the south!!
  • Hmmmm...........courageous to the max it seems
  • Geurradios - I would stop if I were you! Or I shall name and shame you on this public forum and you know what I am talking about. What is funny about common sense and advising a woman to be cautious about her safety.
  • Dear Lilly - there are none so blind as those who cannot see! I live here, I speak the language, I understand the culture and society but you do not! My personal life remains just that. I do not discuss this on a public forum. This is a travel f…
  • Lilly - well of course he is doing all he can!! Your fiance is so, so different to all the others. Good luck
  • Oh here we go yet again.....................your 'fiance' knows exactly what he needs!! You will learn that Tunisian boys are very lazy and you will do all the research, make the arrangements, pay the money honey!! You need: birth certificate not …
  • Agree 150% with Alethia...............rayeobe please do not stay in an apartment with a man you don't know, who may or may not be a good person, where you don't know the society, the culture or even speak the language. Come on now, use the brain yo…
  • Mozak - stats published by the tourist/hotel industry show that we have 90% occupancy during the summer months as strange as it seems! However, there are areas where you can visit and be very safe. There are some beautiful sites in the north consi…
  • The notaire will certify and you can request originals.
  • Kimmo- your fiance is probably using a notaire (we don't have registrars here). These are licenced semi-lawyers who can write the marriage contract and register the marriage. You will need to organise the translation of your certificate of marriag…
  • zanati1 - there are so, so many threads here about marrying a foreign woman!!!! But here I go again: Your friend needs: certificate de naissance no older than 21 days before marriage if she is married before she needs documents of divorce she nee…
  • mimiamman - which part of Jordan will you be moving to? From your name i think perhaps Amman? But you headed this thread with marrying a Bedouin and living in Petra? I know Petra and the area very, very well and would be interested to give you so…
  • I also just should comment on the contract of marriage - you can ask for split assets i.e. you keep what you have and he keeps what he has during the marriage, this can include houses etc. In the case of divorce what you bring to the marriage remai…
  • So Kimino - as for the carte d'identitie as long as he lives in the same municipality he doesn't need to change it - it will take at least 2 months to change if he does it now and can take longer. I just changed mine and it took 4 months!! And by …
  • Mozak - the euro is the most acceptable currency here or second the USD. Don't exchange a lot at once as you may be left with dinar that you cannot exchange once you leave the country. As Alethia says, the government fixes the er but be careful at…
  • Read away.............
  • Kimmo - it should be ok but you may want to check with the embassy to ensure. the laws here change at the drop of a hat and what is legally acceptable today may not be tomorrow
  • Alethia is correct - there are many police here who are married to foreigners and yes they must resign when they get that precious visa!!! But you should also be aware that the foreign 'wife' will also be investigated so her record should be spotle…
  • I am not sure if this document would be accepted. Why can't the Indian embassy supply you with a single status document? Or perhaps it is possible for you to have the document witnessed and certified and notarised by the embassy there.
  • Ermmmm - just so you know the young men in Jendouba are known for this - scamming older foreign women! Don't argue with me I live here and I know this society You will be dependent on him as you cannot have a job here. Any job rightfully goes to …
  • I would think it would be more successful if you were married and apply for a spouse visa.
  • Mozak - we do not have religious ceremony in the mosque. It is a contract which both of you sign and can be done at the municipality or by a notaire in the home. Your birth certificate should be the original - I don't know the difference but perha…
  • Maria - just so you know......Tunisia is not that safe either at the moment! You can come here visa free for 3 months but would advise you to be careful where you stay and in what region. Also please take seriously your government's warning adviso…
  • Oh Jihad here you are yet again!!! She has to apply for you and she should gather all the information from Lithuania and then she can tell you what you need to do.
  • Adrienne - in fact you should divorce as soon as you can because your Tunisian fiance cannot marry you until you have been divorced for 3 months and 1 day exactly! Sorry to disagree Alethia but it doesn't matter whether or not the intended spouse i…
  • Hatta - you need to contact the Tunisian embassy to find out if you can have permission to marry here. I think now it will be possible and you can come as a tourist
  • Walid - I have no idea about Icelandic regulations in regard to foreign marriages. I am sure she knows and if she doesn't then she is in the best country to find out surely?? I would not have thought that the decision to give you residence of Icel…
  • Corallaw - I have answered this question so so many times. There are so many threads but here it is again: You wil need: Original birth certificate no older than 21 days before date of marriage Certificate of no Impediment - document stating that …
  • Adrienne - he must wait 3 months before he can re-marry and you must be divorced for at least 4 months. There is no such thing as city hall here - each region has its own local municipality. You need original documents but they can be copied and c…
