Default ANY AUSTRALIAN RESIDENTS MARRIED OVERSEAS?

Hi,

I'm English (now an AUS citizen) looking to marry my Dutch (PR) girlfriend in The Netherlands. I was wondering if anyone on here has had experience of the application process. There's guidelines online but I'm finding it a bit overwhelming.

We both have a NO RECORDS RESULT cert from the Victorian Births, Marriages and Death dept. Now, we have to send that to the DFAT in Canberra...and here's where I get confused because I don't know what else they want and whether my UK birth certificate is relevant to them, the Dutch Consulate, or if I have to get it signed in the UK.

Any relevant advice would be much appreciated.

Regards,

John

Not too sure what you are asking, you are British and have the right to live and visit the Netherlands as you are STILL an EU citizen, your simplest way is to find out what a British Citizen needs to marry in the Netherlands, using your Aus citizenship is likely to and an extra layer of complications.

Bit confused as to why its being sent to Canberra? While I aree that getting married on your British passport is probably a lot easier, can you point me to the instructions you're following? I think the chances of finding someone else on here who has married in the Netherlands, and therefore had to meet their requirements, if pretty slim.

If you weren't born in Australia then the fact that you now hold Australian citizenship is irrelevant.
