Replying to your PM failed, hence this post.Another twist in our application.
Someone on behalf of immigration called to the marraige registry office to check Nikanama.
The office is located at remote and still not computerized. While on the phone they had miscommunication and eventually the old man said we cant find that file. Immigration suspecting a bogus document provided and asked for clarification .The dicument is Genuine for sure and they find the regisrty office also found that file.
Question - what should be our approach? How do i comvience them they can call the office back to verify the dcument is Genuine or not. Misery of life continue .
That is a real problem. It may not be easy to convince the AHC to phone again since AHC may rightfully presume that the small remote registry office can be bribed to say the certificate is genuine.
I can think of few options.
1. You and your partner can make statutory declarations to the affect that the certificate is genuine and forward to the AHC, explaining the situation.
2. Engage a 3rd party (e.g. a reputable law firm in Colombo) to independently verify the genuineness of the certificate and forward an affidavit to that affect to the AHC.
3. Try to get a letter from the central registry office in Colombo verifying the genuineness of the certificate and forward to the AHC with an explanation.
I think you really need professional advise.
This is a significant issue. As I indicated in my previous post, it is very hard for anyone to trust that small registry office since they have made such a big mistake.
As you have requested, the published contact details for the Colombo AHC is: +94-11-268 2311 (visas, migration and citizenship), [email protected]
