Foreigner marrying an Indian girl.
« on: September 14, 2016, 08:28:09 AM »
Hi all,

Good day to all.

My name is Meeker, I'm holding Afghanistan passport living in Saudi Arabia. I studied my bachelor in India and worked for more than 2 years, my staying period was from 2010 to 2016 right now I'm back to SA. however, I have an Indian girlfriend and I want to marry her. can I know the legal procedure for an Afghani to marry an Indian? I'm also hoping to settle down in India - Bangalore. Please advise on the procedure and how long it might take ??

Thanks in advance.

Dear Mr. Meeker,

You need to take NOC (no objection certificate ) from your embassy. Then file a joint application before registrar of marriage in india, at the place where girl is residing under special marriage act for solemnisation of marriage.

There are documents and formalities but the marriage will be performed. Please tell the girl to find out from the registrar of marriage in her area, where she is residing.

Dear Mr. Bansal,

Thank you so much for your reply and assistance appreciate it. I have some more queries if you don't mind helping me through,

The NOC can I get it from my embassy in India or do I have to get from the embassy in Saudi Arabia before I travel to India?
What do you mean by file a joint application?
My girlfriend is from Shillong but she is staying in Bangalore for now as she is studying and working there.
Can she send me a marriage invitation so that I can get a visa to travel to India or what kind of visa I should come with to India?
After getting married do I need to renew my visa every now and then or how to settle down legally in India?
How long the procedure might take?

Once again thank you so much.

Dear Sir,

The NOC can be obtained from your country or india, there is no difference.

Joint application means that the application having the signature of both the girl and boy. there is a form for solemnisation of marriage under special marriage act. You have to fill the form along with all relevant documents. Both girl and boy needs to be present at the time of filing of the application and at the time of solemnisation of the marriage. There is 30 days gap between filing of the application and solemnisation of marriage as per the act.

There is no such visa for marriage as i understand. You may need to come on tourist visa then perform your marriage and after marriage apply for spouse visa. If your girlfriend is residing and working in Bangalore then she may have some residence proof of bangalore where she is residing and hence the marriage can be solemnised in Bangalore. As one party i.e. (the girl) has to reside for 30 days within the local area of the registrar of marriage before filing of the application. Only one party, hence you are not required to stay there for 30 days. You only need to visit the office for filing of the application and then performance of the marriage.

For completing the marriage it may take 30 to 35 days.
