okay, so skinny decided to take a vacation after two years, he is all set, tickets are locked in, as is the rest of the trip when suddenly the travel agent asks for us to send our wedding certificate....

weird.

we have been so happy having a fun time we never got one... additionally we travelled to Italy & Greece after our wedding for our honeymoon and they didnt ask us for one then either.

this time around the agent mentioned it. so i am just wondering if we need to for our trip to England & Spain.

additionally, any ideas how i can get this very very quick and what i would have to do?

Visas?

For UK you have to have your complete genome imbedded in the visa application these days

Certainly, for UK, but I'm British and my wife is Indian.

That, so far, is the only one we've done.

Oh, yes... I am known for attempting to bring strange women into UK!



We are about to apply again for a trip this year. The form is bad enough; it is not an experience I'm looking forward to!

I'm sure you could get one easily. contact a lawyer at the district court or the district magistrates office. Make the office clerk happy. Take along few photos of your wedding and two witness. You should get this done in a day or two, but key is make and keep the office boys and clerks happy. if you hire a lawyer he'll get all this sorted for you.

You just need to visit the register office where your marriage was registered; you won't need a lawyer.

Or was your marriage not registered?

In which case you still need to do the same, with all the stuff VV mentions.

You need to go to the Marriage Registrar at Old Customs House next to the Town Hall building and get the certificate from there after submitting the forms and photographs, wedding invitation card, priest's name and address, photo, etc. If you had a registered marriage then you just have to collect the certificate from the registrar like I did!!! You have to have a certificate nowadays since it is the new law implimented about a year ago to prove that you are married (not necessarily required for travel purposes but only to show to someone if they think you are not married).

Cheers,

I think the fee here for a copy marriage cert is Rs3.

Perhaps you paid a little more than 1500 in 'bribes'!
