I'll tell you another story then ... My husband taught be how to write arabic on my phone which I just remember by which square to press on the S4 as it predicts words and the next words. Anyway one day instead of starting at the left I did the right and I told his cousin that he should go to a marriage site..... I meant to say salam alaikum ( السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته)

Sometimes you cant actually accurately translate from one language to another. The sayings and idioms are virtually impossible.
Supporting documents.
...
All documents not in English must be accompanied by an
accurate English translation of the original. You may be asked to
provide the originals of your documents at a later stage. Do not
provide originals unless you are asked.
For further information about certified copies, statutory
declarations and English translation, see booklet 1, Partner
Migration...


I'm pretty sure every piece of paper you send them has to be translated since it probably will be viewed by English only speaking Australian staff...

I'd like to ask a question... This can benefit others too.

In Sudan, we don't have such a thing as compulsory military that needs to be completed and when we leave the country, we are free from anything holding us back on the passports. It's not like Egypt where a year of service must be fulfilled.

Does this mean if I was being processed in Cairo for a visa, I would still need to provide proof that I am not required to fulfil any military time/duty in Sudan before they let me travel out??

I'm not 100% sure on this, but from my understanding.
Cairo embassy will NOT ask you for military fulfillment duty for Sudan.

The Sudanese government will need to see that you have completed National service in order to get exist visa. Cairo embassy have no control of this.

To answer one of your previous questions, I believe Mish also answered. You will be advised if the if the interview will be conducted in Arabic or English. I say yours will most likely be conducted in English. You will need to organize for interpreter yourself and pay for the service yourself.

Hope this helps.

12 months of military service isn't a must in Egypt ... my husband never served. Egypt have all these rules around it like ... If you are male and only son and your father is dead then you get deferred until you reach 30 and then you are exempt.

In Egypt they won't issue your passport though if under 30 unless you have been deferred and then you get a passport for 3 years .... unsure what happens if you are abroad though when it expires I would presume you could renew it but not sure what happens about the military when you one day return to Egypt.

Angry

Really?????

Okay... and hypothetically it's in English.. am I able to hire any interpreter to come into the interview with my partner or are there accredited ones in Khartoum that need to be arranged?

This is beginning to stress me out.

How unprivate!

Ours said on the email it would be conducted in Arabic but then he asked "do you mind if we do it in English" so I think half was in English and half in Arabic.

I think they just wanna know if it's the same level of English the applicant showed in his/her statutory declaration and also if the sponsor does not speak Arabic it raises the question how can you communicate?

So I wouldn't be too worried. This is not an English test.
Can't believe you will need an interpreter since all COs speak both languages. Just ask them before the interview about it and tell them that you communicate mostly in Arabic because your partner's English is not good enough.

My fiancÚ's interview was half and half too.
