Hi all,

As the title shows I'm a Pakistani girl living abroad for studies. The guy I want to marry is an Indian Muslim who is working in a multinational company here in Malaysia. The thing is I have heard that a Pakistani girl can't marry an Indian guy specially Muslims in our case or if they get married there will be a never ending series of problems. I'm depressed and can't find a ray of hope in this matter. I have been struggling a lot to find someone who can help me in this regard. We have planned to settle here in Malaysia since we both will do jobs here In Sha Allah. My questions are:

1. How to proceed? Should we get married here in Malaysia or back in India? Can we get married in India? Will there be any problem?

2. Can i visit India and Pakistan like twice a year? Will it create a problem?

Please help me. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at the "Similar Threads" that appear at the bottom of this page. Of course you can marry the person of your choice but you won't be able to get OCI status.

I will go out on a limb, and say: Yes, get married in Malaysia.

If and when you do decide to settle in India, research the special LTV visa granted to Pakistani spouses of Indian citizen.

But i read one thread in which it was highlighted that if a Pakistani girl wants to marry an Indian guy, they need to get married in India and get their marriage registered at the nearest registrar office.

If we get married in Malaysia, can we both go to India or Pakistan as a married couple?
What measures do we need to take if we want to visit our countries?

Do go to the Indian Embassy for clarification, because would probably getting married via a nikah-nama. Visa granting entity would be the nearest consulate/embassy.

Religion is a great thing, isn't it...?

Please beware of what you read on the internet, sometimes, even with the best intentions, wrong information is given.

I agree that you should (both) go to the Embassy direct for information, and not "trust" our amateur advice.

(This advice above is amateur advice too, so feel free to ignore me too!)

Good Luck,

Ed.

PS OCI means Overseas Citizen Of India. I think it allows holder to travel back to India from abroad at any time without further visa?

Correct. It's like the ILR for non-EEA citizens, or the EU<-->UK pre #brexit

Thanks. It's just that I'm thinking of all the possibilities and short comings that can occur in future.

@nycank Thanks for the advice. I hope all goes well.
