NOIM Question | PMV 300 | Cairo Embassy

Hi to anyone who may come across this post,

My partner and I are applying for the PMV300 Visa. He is from Morocco and I am Australian.

With regards to our Notice of Intended Marriage, as we are not in the same country, I am a little confused as to how we will approach this regarding signatures/witnesses.

I have been through the old threads/posts, and some have said that some celebrants only submit a letter and it's all ok, whereas other celebrants refuse to or some embassies require the Notice of Intended Marriage as well as a celebrant letter.

We are applying through Cairo Embassy - I read that Mish said her CO requested a NOIM when she applied five years ago, so I assume we would need to as well.

I know my partner would need to sign in front of a Notary public in Morocco - would the Cairo Embassy accept a document where he signs it, and scans it and sends it to me or would he have to post the original copy? All our letters in the mail to each other since August have not been received, so we are a little worried.

Any advice on NOIM and/or PMV300 and/or Cairo Embassy is so welcomed. Thank you!

Unless things have changed they require the NOIM signed by both parties.

My husband he signed it at the embassy in Cairo, it was then scanned and I signed it and then scanned it and sent to the marriage celebrant and then she scanned it sent it back and then I emailed it to the case officer.

The case officer was very adamant about having it and even provided us with the counter hours at the embassy.

Advice - unless things have changed they interview 90% of applicants.

Hi Mish, thank you so much for your response. Noted that scanned copies are okay - that saves us a lot of worry!! With regards to interviews, we'd thought they'd stopped doing interviews! Thank you for letting me know - we'll keep that in mind as something else we need to prepare for.

Also, I'd like to thank you so much for all of your advice on this forum. I've screenshotted so many of your responses and advices so my fiance & I can return to logic when we're getting overwhelmed.

I am not sure if they still do interviews but good to keep it in your mind incase they do. At the time they were one of the only embassies to interview majority of applicants.

Also when he comes to Australia make sure he brings his original birth certificate & original translation of the birth certificate. He will need both for in the future when he applies for citizenship.

I only needed to provide a letter from the celebrant that a NOIM had been registered with her but that was for the consulate in Ho Chi Minh City Vietnam.

Hi Salvy, thank you for your response. I'm not sure if different rules apply between Vietnam & Morocco given that Morocco is a 'high-risk country' so I think it's best to submit all the docs that we can in the first instance. We have even done the medical checks & police checks! To do them again will be easy, but to wait longer because we didn't supply them would be hard to swallow.

How has your PMV application been going?
