Re: Greetings and Questions from Sudan

Yes, check with the authorities first. If they turn around and say they won't accept the financial arrangement then there's no point in applying at present. You'll have to find some arrangement that they will accept.

How long for the permit? Anyone's guess. The authorities will do their investigations into the finance, marriage, etc, before granting a permit for you which will trigger acceptance of your visa application. If there are no hold-ups or extra checks then maybe 6-8 weeks. Anything you have in the way of letters, pictures, rental contracts if you lived together, etc, will help prove your relationship.

If you got married in the Sudan, then you need to get your marriage certificate translated into German or French for a start. The migration office will tell you what other documents will need translating, etc. Bear in mind this could add to the time factor too.
