Registration of my marriage
Dear Carlos

You Never asked me this question but I thought I will answer it anyway.

The answer to your question is simple...

You can register your marriage in only two places....

1) Either directly in Portugal by giving someone the Power of Attorney, the couple need not be present or
2) The place where the married couple are residing. for eg. if you both are in Goa you can register in Goa (It takes time though), if you both are in London you can do it in London (normally is done in a day), etc....

Unfortunately your sister in Europe will not be able to do it even if you give her the Power of Attorney, as you Guys will not be present there... Also one more hitch is that where ever you do the registration other than Lisbon you have to show that you have a valid visa or permit to stay that... (tourist visa is not valid). You have to show that you are a resident of that place.

For eg if you guys are in London.... to register in London you guys need to prove that you have a valid Visa and a valid proof of address otherwise they don't accept. You will not need a visa as you will be on the Portuguese passport, but your wife will need.

I dont know what your plans are but My suggestion.... is that why don't you go to UK or whichever European country you want to go to... then take your wife as a dependent on a Spouse visa and then apply for your marriage registration.... you will spend peanuts if you do this and it just takes a day... at least in London.

Hope this information throws some light on the process

Best Regards

Alternate documents...
Dear Richard Fernandez

I read that you cannot find your grandfather's marriage Teor and looking for an alternative....

Are you sure your grandfather was married in Goa..? if yes.. do you know which church....? if yes is it possible to get the church marriage certificate or marriage transcript. This will work in the absence of a Teor. Second if you trace your grandparents baptism certificates (assuming your grandmothers is also from Goa) there will be a small note on the baptism certificate register stating to whom they got married to. This could be a supplementary proof.

Let me put a quotation to you.... are you sure your father does not have any old document....?
Provided he has a birth Teor you could try these things...
if he has studied in Goa in a Portuguese primary school prior to 1961 there should be a record...or else if he has ever gone out of Goa before 1961 there should be a record...
If these options do not help... then you have to stick to Grandfathers Birth Teor and Marriage.

As long as you can get a letter that the Marriage Teor does not exists and is destroyed... you should be good to go. Assuming they were married in Goa and you can prove that by a church certificate and Baptism certificates...

Well my name is Remie Antao and I am based in UK... if you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me on the number provided. I am on WhatsApp as well

Hope I have given you some new information.

Best Regards

@Curious reader: NO RESULT NO FEE Policy
Dear Curious reader

The Money I take is not for giving you a job.... but getting your birth/marriage registrations done.... that too within a time frame. If I can't do this My commitment is that I will return 100% of your money without keeping a single rupee (which in fact will be a loss to my business).

Now about helping you settle in the UK, this is a added bonus which come for FREE for all my clients... If you need it you take or leave it.

I have seen lot of people coming to the UK and spending 2-3 months getting a job.... by that time there would be a loss of earning of at least for 2 months which is like 2 Lakhs in Indian money... I make sure that I put you on to a job with the first 15days to 1 month, by which you can start earning almost immediately and recover atleast half of your investment into the Portuguese passport. One thing to note though is that if you are a doctor, engineer or any other highly skilled profession, then I can't offer you a job in that capacity. The types of jobs I'm referring to is hourly paid jobs.... which can serve an a good starter job and then you can always search a job in your field, my support will always be there.

Now about taking money upfront.... If I know you personally then I will NOT take money and only do once I deliver, but that's not the case most of the time... So I take money in phases... first phase ... then I show you the result .... then next phase.. etc....

seems like you have too many questions.... why don't you text me your number I can call you wherever you are....

In Goa we operate from Vasco Da Gama and you can find our advert in Lharam (Monthly Magazine of St. Andrew Church, Vasco)

Hope this answers your questions....

Best Regards

@Remie: NO RESULT NO FEE Policy
Does your " NO RESULT NO FEE Policy" mean that you don't take money until the end when the person has obtained a job and work for free until then?
Or you take money from the start either in one go or multiple installments, but "promise" to refund it if things don't work out?

You can send it to Lisbon directly it will take up to 3-6 weeks! I would suggest you to go through a attorney he is based in Lisbon his fees are quite reasonable.

His name is Pedro Rodrigues: pedrorodrigues2009@gmail.com

Just an Indian style affidavit make sure the affidavit is in Portuguese. Mention all the errors you have in all the documents you have use SDL Translator its one of the best so far!

Request for clarification
Hi Shayne.

Thanks for hosting this forum.

I trust you will excuse me for perhaps asking something that you may answered ad nauseum. But I'm looking to clarify what my mum needs to do once she gets her Portuguese passport. She is on her own, and I'm looking forward to have her join me in the UK. I gather from one of your comments posted earlier that her Indian passport should be surrendered asap. I presume she then needs to apply for a 'surrender certificate'. Does it mean she's then got to leave India asap? Or does she have room to manouevre, to apply for the OCI in Goa itself? Which in itself raises a question, as one of the requirements for the OCI seem to be an entry/exit date on a current visa. I'm confused with all the mental juggling with various facts and requirements. Could you advise?

Many thanks in advance.
