  • I’m being told that my Nadra marriage certificate now needs a further ‘stamp’ from the Pakistani Government before it can be used to get a tourist visa for France (or any other country). This is based on my Pakistani husband with Leave to Enter the UK and I (a British born citizen, his wife and sponsor in the UK) wanting to go for a weekend away in Paris. How do we get this done?
