Getting Married in Algiers

Post New Topic

I met my fiance' online in 2006 and went to visit him in 2008. We submitted our petition for fiance' to USCIS which was approved but they took their time during the processing and it expired. So we have decided to get married in Algiers. As a U.S. citizen I was wondering what documents I will need to bring with me and how long the process takes. If anyone can advise me about this it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi....I'm Canadian,got married to an Algerian a little over 1 yr ago.For your paper work they want an original birth certificate which they will keep,you need your passport,during the interview they will ask you about your education level (for them a BAC is high school not university) your job,just mention one,I had to explain that here we do change jobs and sometimes have more than pone at a time lol.
Now I guess I shouldn't be saying this but here's the God's truth lol The speed that your interview and paper get handled does depend on who you know.......I got everything done within a VERY short time frame. Unless you're planning on staying there for for an extended period,plan on a return trip for the papers and wedding.Best of luck.
