American Citizen marrying an Indian girl
« on: September 06, 2015, 11:01:31 PM »
Alright so as the title suggests, I am an American citizen. I am thinking of getting married to a girl who is also the same cast as I am. We are both Muslims.

She doesn't have a passport yet. Since I am an American citizen, I have an American passport.

My reason for coming to this forum is to get some clarification.

What can I do to make the process faster? I would like her to be able to get the visa as fast as possible.

Is court marriage the best idea? We probably won't get married the traditional way (Nikah) because my entire family isn't present here. Both my parents and her parents are completely happy and are present here in India. Is there a reason to keep anything a secret from anyone?

Should I apply for her based on the fiancee visa or spouse visa?

And in order to get a new passport for her, should she use my name? If yes then we have to get married first in the court.

Let me know if you have any questions.

P.S. We reside in the state of Gujarat.

Thank you in advance,

Anonymous guy

if you are getting married or as  fiancee, your girl friend will get visa, time taken for both will be same.

so you decide what you want.

So what is the procedure?

Should I first get married to her in court and then apply for her passport with my name? If I remember correctly, the visa office asked for marriage album (picture proof). Why would they need picture proof if I have legal court marriage certificate?

Your marriage certificate is enough to prove your marriage. It is not required to show photo evidence.

Yes photo graph is required, tgats their requirement and that had to be fulfilled.
there is no room for debate on this.

if you are getting married than what is the problem clicking a photo.

I have no issues in taking pictures. In fact, I would love to get my pictures taken when I get married. But since this is a court marriage, there is no possible way I will have a whole album.

What you are suggesting is that they just want couple of pictures in the court? If that's the case then I don't see a problem with that.

Please clarify if there is anything else I should know.

Thanks

He must be an idiot without any doubt who is asking for marriage photographs inspite of producing marriage certificate.

We are all Indians here. We know that sometimes the government officials are unreasonable here in India.

That is the only reason I am inquiring about these things.
