Hi Guys,

Any inputs are appreciated!!

We are Nov 27th applicants. PA got a call from CIC NDVO last week asking few basic questions & details regarding marriage ceremonies. They asked for more pictures of pre-wedding & post-wedding ceremonies. We did it in a simple way. We only had one pre-wedding ceremony Mehndi. And Marriage ceremony was simple but we had about 150 guest invited. & one post-wedding ceremony. Could it be that we didn't had holy fire ceremony ? In our family, we never do that ceremony. We perform our marriage in the witness of all our relative. And later next day we got our marriage registered.

We are in relationship from last 5 years. Initially, when we sent our file, We attached our story of our 5 year journey along with Few picture (20 picture in total) Along with picture where I proposed her, our first date, First time we met, my flights tickets of last 3 years of my visit to India & chat logs and so on.

Now, in this additional documents request, We provided them mehndi pictures, dance performance pictures from her cousins, We had a reception combined in the same event, so provided pictures of that. Also explained our rituals with detailed descriptions.. We sent about 60 Pictures..

How long it takes for them to reply? Is it a red flag? I am flying to india in Oct for my first year anniversary.

Thank you guys in advance!

I have received pre arrival on 18 March 2018 and received remedical 17 September 2018 and nothing after that
Interesting timeline. Seems like they took exactly* 6 months. Probably they put the files on Put Away for 6 months in London regardless and even if security check passes before that they don't check which is disappointing and unprofessional to say the least.

Actually, our case is similar as well. We are in long distance relationship for over good 4 years. And I went to India to get engage. Then went again to get married. But we didn't perform our marriage with HolyFire or what they call as per hindu rituals. It was very simple with chanting of verses by a Pandit. But we did mentioned in our file that it was a traditional marriage even though it didn't included HolyFire senario. Will it harm our case? We had around 200-250 guests invited. We provided only 20 Pictures(Which includes Engagement pics, marriage pics, other outing pics) as mentioned in the check list with a good cover letter explaining our 4 years of relationship with referencing to those 20 pictures. Should it be enough to make our case strong? I saw some posts here in forum, were ppl got request from NDVO asking for picture with HolyFire.. So bit worried :S

Thank you in advance!!
Hi

Ours is a similar case. We don't have pics with Pandit too? We got request to submit photos of Traditional ceremonies like phera and all. I hope that your file was approved and the proof of relationship and an explanation worked for you. that would be comforting to know.
Please respond.
thanks

Not clear why they ask HOLY FIRE PLUS on top of that a COURT Marriage as well !
Suppose a person has NO religious beliefs will they reject his case ! And indirectly force him to adopt a religion :( 1st G...eeee man. Thousands of fakers successfully have and are cheating them. In most cases they should see reality of relationships i;e ; real chats , records of visits, photos. Not number of guests + Holy Books or rituals ...>>should not be mandatory but a contributing factor to find truth. We are compelled to produce more guests, do all rituals even if both parties are atheists >> even in a 100% genuine case. I hope some changes will be made in the near future

is there any chance of our application getting rejected if we fail to submit pre wedding ,post wedding & traditional wedding photos?

In my case we had a very simple wedding and a reception. We don't believe in the customary ritual so we didnt have any priest or any rituals performed. We exchanged rings and we had a very simple reception fro about 300 people.

I cannot provide pre wedding & post wedding pics as we dont have them.But i have submitted the ring exchange & reception photos. Will giving an explanation do good to our application?
Please suggest.

Anything that proves your relationship will help your application. No document/photo is mandatory. Just believe in the process and their judgement.
I understand you didn't have the ceremony performed by a priest. But you exchanged rings. So, you must captured that moment with your camera, isnt it? You must have dressed, isn't it? And 300 people isn't small. So, You had a significantly big party. So, if you took some pics, attach them. Then honemoon or vacation pics, etc. You social network announcement/posts, chats, video call logs, etc. etc. Everything will together will help your application. Not just one priest standing topless or a white gown is gonna help your application.

Thank you so much for the reply.

yes, we were dressed for the ceremony, we have provided the photos of rings exchanged, family photos clicked together and casual outing pics.
But yet they are asking for traditional marriage pics.

All I have now is the flight tickets of my spouse visiting me in Oct and our honeymoon booking details which we've planned in November.

Write an explanation letter why you did not do traditional ceremony and why you don't believe in it. If your spouse visited you before marriage, you can attach those flight tickets and passport stamps and any selfies during your meetups. Also, social network presence would greatly help. Attach the comments from your friends. You can make your post visibility public and provide the link in your application.

You got any facebook posts u made during that period? Any whatsap chats with dates prior to or during that period? Any chats or exchanges with friends and or family prior to or during that period? Provide them all. Our wedding had less than 200 people and we were approved from first shot. Just make sure u dig deep. Ask friends and family if they got anything related to the fact that there wasnt any traditional marriage etc. As proposed above, social media proof is highly essential. Good luck.

Honesty is the BEST policy. SO provide what ever you have with a letter of explanation attached. In the past when a fiance was allowed to come here ; 1 piece of paper with nothing more did the job. Unfortunately rules are gone very strict ,they suspect us all. Cant blame them either but as you know ppl have misused the system

Yes. We have instagram posts. Going to submit this.

1.We have proofs in our work location where we've declared each other as husband and wife in our company portals by providing the marriage certificate.
My husband has made medical claims in my name in his company.


Can we submit these? will they accept them as valid proofs?
