my dad' given name on my other nationality passport (im australian and am the applicant's fiance but have two passport) is different (basically has a couple of more words) than his citizenship and the spelling that I have provided in form 80.

do you think that will cause an issue? I mean would they even bother to cross check my das name spelling on my other passport and compare it with his spelling in form 80?

if so, what should I do now?

thnaks very much

Hi, I have read how you have been helping many here. I hope I will be one on whom you can help for my PMV application. BTW, congrats to you and your fiance. You deserve the visa.

Religiously married not in civil law

Hi,

I know I've asked this question before but I just wanna take another insight into it and get your opinion.

As you know, we married religiously in Kenya and that is not recognised by law but still to be safe we wont even show the religious marriage certficate which is a duggy community paper anyway!

but the religious values and responsisbilities that now we have towards each other plus lots of family pictures taken and all that has added weight, value, and strength to our application.

Withought that our application would be week because it started online took a month for me to go there then after 3 days got religiouslly married that we r planning to submit online about 3 months after the engagement / religiously married date.

So, for above reasons, I've decided to take a risk and do the following:
although we havent married under civil law, but for the sake of preventing any confusion, wont show the religiously marriage certifiate, but will include the religious marriage ceremeny pics with her and family, although shes wearing white wedding cloths and I'm wearing typical cultural groom fit out!
I do also wanna mention and emphasis and make it as clear as possible to the case officer that we have not married under civil law and is not legally recognised we did it since we wanted to have relationship, etc with no restrictions....


could you please shed some light and share our thoughts your experiences in this regard?

thanks so much again from those who have been answering me and the rest who will hopefully respond

I really do think that you should either speak to a migration agent or post in the "Ask Mark!" sticky as we may not give you the correct advice we only have opinions and an agent will have a better idea.

My thoughts ... the co may question why you got married (even though not officially" only a few days after meeting her for the first time.

My next thought is ... what happens if the co suggests to lodge it to make it official? Then you won't qualify for the pmv.

IMO I think do not mention the word marriage. Yes you can mention ceremony but do noy call it a marriage ceremony because it can confuse them. You can call it a religious ceremony and say it was performed in order for you to stay together. The co may think it was abit rushed but in some countries it is normal for things to happen fast .... my fiance asked me to marry him on our first date!

furthermore, if the applicant quit her job which she has in overseas and the sponsor go to her for 2months stay together, does this look good or bad?

i mean looks good that the applicant for the sake of being with sponsor has wuit her job but looks bad that she now looks to be very much dependent on her fiance?

which side you are on?!

Not sure really but some people can have a white engagement dress too. If you call it a "religious ceremony" it should not be an issue.

I would wonder why the applicant quit her job. To me it would appear strange unless there was a good reason.

well the reason we wanna mention is that we wanna spend more time together and also once we submit the online we wanna apply for tourist visa so if gets granted for 3 months she comes over, then obviously she can have her job with 2 months break then go back to work then a month later another 3 months break, so.... that's how we wanna justify it, but do you think quiting her job would sound strange and hmmmm to them?!

thanks very much
