Bit of a strange question but when I get my birth certificate translated does it need to be in french or arabic. My CONI is being done as we speak at the embassy but didnt think to ask what language for my birth certificate.

Hi Everyone,

Just a few questions if anyone can help.

So I got divorced from my Tunisian Husband in March after being seperated for awhile. I am now getting married againas mad as you all may think I am haha I am really happy more than I have ever been anyway I went to my regristry office and registred to get married again in tunisia i gave all my divorce papers then a week later got a letter that i had to fill in because i am not a tunisian national. I asked if it would take longer now for my coni to be ready but they couldnt answer but said they will phone me still waiting for this phone call and have rang back twice :( .

So my question is has anybody had this happen and there was a delay in getting your paperwork?

And does anybody know where and if i can see where they post our names for intended marriges?

Thanks

Holly xx

Congrats to your upcoming wedding!

The good thing with being married to a Tunisian man before is that you are well aware of the culture :)

Your local registry office.. Not sure what difference not being a Tunisian National makes ? :confused:

You are intending to marry in Tunisia, and the CONI should take 21days (posted in your Town Hall) and then they will call you when its time to collect or they'll post them to you - whichever you agreed.

Not sure if there is a specific website - never looked :D Does your local registry office have a website? Could be worth having a look and see if you can view online. If not, then i would either go to the registry office and have a look or call them to ask when its likely to be ready.

You remembered your recent BC? :p

Hollysahbi your birth certificate needs to be no older than 21 days on the date of your wedding..so you may need to order again, however your CONI is valid for 3 months from the date of issue. Remember as well to have your decree absolute with you and get it translated. I'm presuming your absolute is older than 3 months?

It needs to be in Arabic if the weddings in Tunisia...lol..the registrar will need it before the wedding. I was divorced previously but in England so papers were in English, then had them translated and stamped in Tunisia. I had it translated though with my BC etc the week leading up to the wedding.

I'm not sure Holly, I wouldn't have thought so though. Especially if you were divorced in Tunisia from your ex. Double check it though.

Maybe they assume that like Tunisians we have our marital status on our BC's. :confused:

Holly, take a photo copy of your passport info page and 2 passport photos of you each. You will also need the Drs certificate when you are over there.
