High guys and girls,

We-my indian fiance and me- are preparing documents for getting married under SMA in india. So far i should be familiar with which documents to bring along from my home country Austria ( no kangaroos, sorry....).
Which are namely birth certificate ( international version), proof of address and paper stating my marital status. The 2 last papers are the austrian version of the german " erweiterte meldebescheinigung" or called "excerpt from civil register according to section 58 civil register act". As getting full certificate of marriageability (for both parties) in austria is a nuisance due to lacking documents from my fiance and place of living would be in india we opted for this variety and i hope this works.
Both documents are in german language ( of course). So my question is ( besides from apostille where nobody knows if you really need it in india for marriage?) should i get the translation to english in my home country or get it done in india?
I would like to hear what's right or better as obviously ive lost my brain somewhere. And permanent confusion with australia

Austria and india are both members of the hague convention so apostille is applicable ( difference to germany! )

See you.

You need to get a list from the SDM/Registrar of the jurisdiction where your spouse to be lives. He should get that squared away. Remember, which SMA is applicable nation wide, the registration and officiating is a state function - And, thus, depend on what the Registrar wants.


Here is where you need to get your documents apostilled

Wow that page comes really handy. This surely helps with questions regarding apostille or legalisation also for others.
So far i know where documents have to apostilled.
Still i have no clue wether to get translation done in austria or in india?

I haven't asked yet but even documents issued by an embassy and apostilled by embassy are in local language( means in this case german, official language in austria)? Otherwise i would bring all tbe documents along to avoid to have them issued by the embassy.
Thanks for reading folks.

Take a toy kangaroo for the registrar. I learned that in my corporate politics class (for the kid of course or for his office)..

The wait for your spouse-to-be to come back with the list of document from his registrar / SDM (Sub Divisional Magistrate)
