Marriage Certificate Apostilation

After 4 attempts by DH and I to submit our marriage certificate for apostilization at the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), since the submitting hours are 11am-1pm, it was submitted Friday. We had always been just a few minutes late. DH submitted it and he was given a receipt to pick it up Tuesday between 4-5pm. We received it today. :-)

This took us 1 month and 24 days. The guys at the FRRO said it should be a 15-20 day process. Now, if all goes well we should be going to the MHA in Delhi shortly! :-)


  1. Finally! lol. Glad you've gotten through this step and can move toward a final resolution.

    1. I know, right?! :-) I'm glad, now either DH gets his surgery or we go to Delhi...since apparently this apostolization is only good for 6 months? (But some countries will accept it for life, but it depends...) So we kinda wanna get both conversions (Entry visa and PIO) without having to do that again...*sigh*

      Now I will have idli (DH is making them) and vegetable stew for lunch...yummy
