    I gave up on this ages ago. The douane hear the word car and you turn into a goose that lays gold eggs.

    Need advice what i need to marry a tunisian man in tunisia

    I dont quite understand everything you have typed. First thing why are you doing this when you are getting married to a Tunisian in Tunisia? I hope he is not leaving it all to you. Now find out the registry office where you are getting married and then ask them what you need. I say this as...

    To set up a top quality Indian Restaurant with Bar

    Is it cheap? labour yes property and rents no Is it business friendly? If you are an exporter yes think manufacturing or some exporting call centre/professional service. Is this market good to invest? For me not in that industry. I am in the same industry and I am seldom tempted due to...

    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

    The first bit wont cut it as thats not actually right now, akin to saying when i get to the UK I will x/y/z. You parents money will be their money unless they give you x years worth of money in your account up front. I would professionally check this as I was told 60,000£+ in account for at...

    At one time this site was quite popular. We would be top of google for many searches etc etc and have well over 60,000 visitors a month. But if you go back 10 years the tourism was a bit better and you also had a community of UK citizens living in Tunisia. This last bit is very important as...

    Moving back to Tunisia

    I lived in Tunisia for 3-4 Years In the old days of this site before the revolution and ad blockers it was 25% website and 75% money from selling my business at the time. I was on 3-4000 dinars a month nearly 10 years ago and once the kids (I have 3 ) started to get to school age and to to the...

    Moving back to Tunisia

    I was living in Tunisia and my kids where school age and I considered what was best for them. When I factored in a private school in Tunis (so they speak english and can work back home if required) and the precarious nature of the Tunisian economy I decided to come back. I can get a job any...

    Good luck with this. Someone correct me if I am wrong. FCR is the right to bring a car in as a Tunisian abroad after a certain period. RS is the designation on the numberplate where that is used upon.... and thus when done can only be sold to another person in that situation. Back in the day...

    Topping up income with savings - Tunisia to UK 2.5 year Visa

    I always assumed it was 3x years money like 60,000 and it could not be gifted or if it was it had to be in there for 6 months at least. This would then bes classed as "independent means"but maybe the rules have changed. Sounds like its going to be a struggle. With the minimum wage £8.21 per...

    American woman trying to marry Tunisian man

    See other thread. You fiancee should ask the registry office where you are going to get married. I had the embassy paper... but then they told me they did not want that and wanted a certificate of no impediment from my home city and also less than 7 days old! So the moral is go by the list...

    American marrying in Tunisia

    First thing call the registry office where you want to get married and ask them what they need. I foud out the hard way that the right papers can sometimes not be enough when you have a stubborn registrar who likes it their way.

    such a complicated scenario. Speak to your local Tunisian embassy and you other half speak to his embassy in Tunisia. You talking about two different countries with a marriage in a third one. Lots of homework as this is a very rare scenario
