gettin a CONI translated in tunis at the british embassy is currently 160TND
PRICE Paid by myself ON 01/10/10

to get a coni u either need to give notice to ur local registry office for 21 days n then go to tunis to translate

OR

u give tunis british embassy 21 days notice by residing 1st in the country for 21 days; waiting for CONI 21 days n paying near enough 300TND for the same job......

I Picked up my CONI today and the total cost was 308 dinar. It was 149 Dinar for the banns to be read and 169 dinar to pick up the CONI. How much is it to have the banns read in the UK?

Dont think so cos if I remember correctly I had to sign something & show my passport.

To be quite honest I wouldnt risk posting something like that to Tunisia, the chances of it getting lost in the system are quite high.

If you go to the embassy early enough in the morning you might get the translated coni back the same day, or if you are having to travel a long way to the embassy, explain this to them & they might just do it the same day. We got ours back within an hour as we went on a Thursday not knowing that the embassy was going to be closed the next day. The woman was really helpful.

I have no home address in the UK as i live in Tunisia so I couldnt have had it done there.

somone on this site told us about translation service in sousse. If it's possible to have the translation done there, do I still have to take CONI and B.CERT for stamp in Tunis?

Just went through all this last week!! CONI MUST be translated at the embassy and it was TND159! Check first with where you will be getting married. Mine had to be translated into french - not sure if this is the norm. I got my birth certificate translated in Sousse which cost TND12 hope this helps!
BTW CONI in Northern Ireland cost me £15 and birth certificate £12.

Do you have to make an appointment with the Embassy, or can you just drop in to pick up the CONI and arrange the translation?

We just turned up at the embassy in Tunis no appointment needed. Do go first thing tho as they should then be able to give you the translation back the same day! Good luck and I hope all goes well for you x

Hi Everyone,

Just after a bit of advice please - Does anyone know how strict they are with the date/place named on your CONI?

Reason I ask is with Thomas Cook cancelling all our flights, my friends and family are scared and won't fly into Tunis - So now thinking of going alone and having small family wedding in his home town - But named Sousse on the CONI?

Thanks for any advice x
