More about Online Weddings
We’ve had a great deal of interest from clients, new, old and future, about the online weddings since our last article. Many partner visa clients have emailed asking the “how do we do this?” questions, and I promised to come up with further information.
Here it is!
Answers to Online Wedding questions
A few common questions I’ve had over the last week…
A few have asked me to recommend a marriage agent in Utah. Well, my communication with the Government in Prado Utah tells me that they don’t deal with go-betweens. No room for agents. Must be the couple themselves who deal directly with them. I suspect there will be a few opportunists out there who have money in mind and not your best interests. Maybe I’ve missed something? I suspect not. And honestly, once you have a read of the links you’ll see that this is a pretty simple process. Cheap too!
Not keen on an online wedding
I can understand this. I really can. My wedding day (17 years ago now) was pretty special, and I’m glad we got to do things the way we did. But back then it took only two months and there she was in Australia with me. If I was facing delays and uncertainty now? Goodness me, we would jump at this chance! Can always have the big family wedding later. Isn’t it worth it to be able to be together sooner?
Do you pay us, or get us to organise this?
As above. No go-betweens. Not even us. And this is really quite simple and straight forward. If visa applications were so simple, there would be nothing for me to do. We are Migration Agents. If this was complicated and necessary for our clients for us to step in, we would. But it isn’t.
As far as we’re concerned, this is just a great way to make a way for couples to get past the current speed-bumps in the immigration road. You can all get on with those visa applications as married couples, and that means being able to apply for travel ban exemptions.
