Hi everyone. I have been looking up information on Registration of Wedding for foreign nationals in India, and stumbled upon this great site. I need some advice regarding my situation.

I'm an Indian Citizen and my fiancée is a UK national (a British Citizen). . We are scheduled to get married by the end of next month in Delhi, India. I have been reading up on wedding registrations for foreign nationals in India, and have a few questions, hopefully you guys can answer.

1. The wedding registration law says that a foreign national needs a 'no objection certificate' from British embassy. Anyone know how hard is this to get, and how long does it take? Can he get this while in the UK itself, and if so, where is it issued?

2. My Fiancée had visited the British Embassy in London, but they say they do not issue the No – Objection Certificate and without the No objection Certificate my marriage would not be registered.

3. Some websites state that, we will have to stay in India for at least 30 days after the wedding for getting the registration certificate. Is this true? Our schedules won’t allow us to do this. Any other alternatives?

4. Is it possible to get the No objection Certificate from British Embassy, Delhi for my fiancée ( a UK Citizen) and can I get it on his behalf or he himself have to go there.



Any help in making a decision is much appreciated. Thanks

Jaspreet

UK Certificate of No Impediment info can be found --> here.

I didn't have one for my marriage in India. I took an affidavit, and the registrar didn't want to see it.

No... it doesn't take 30 days to get the certificates. I think it took three days for us. Maybe a week... but no longer.

There isn't really much difference between marrying a foreigner and marrying another Indian, so don't worry too much about it and do not get involved with lawyers who try to tell you that there is and that, for a substantial sum, they will handle it!

We got our certificate thirty minutes after the Special Marriage Act wedding at the Saket Registrar. Take the opportunity to get an extra five or six certified copies with the original. You'll need them for PIO and other stuff.

Politeness and boxes of sweets help with the staff...

What affidavit is it (done at the consulate or by a notary)? If it was in Chennai, which registrar did you go to?
