    Hi,

    I'm from India. Last year I got a paper marriage in the UK in order to go to Germany on a spouse visa, but for personal reasons, I left my husband and came back to India and applied for divorce from India which I am getting soon.

    Now I have fallen madly in love with an Australian. We got engaged. As he is coming back to Australia, I just want to know when I can apply for a visit finance visa. Do I need to declare my old marriage? As I didn't declare it in the UK? What do you suggest?

    Hi tina,

    I don't see why you would not be able to get a prospective spouse's visa. You can read about the requirements here: Prospective Marriage visa (subclass 300)

    I'm not sure whether you are required to declare a previous marriage. It is the sponsor they place limitations on - they cannot sponsor someone under a spouse visa if they have sponsored someone within the last 5 years or have sponsored 2 people for visas before.

    Actually, it was just paper marriage back in the UK. We didn't live together actually nor did we declare it in anywhere apart from the German embassy. I don't want to lose my fiancé. He doesn't know that I was previously married. I will apply for a visit visa very soon, but please can you tell, will it be a problem to not declare my earlier marriage?

    I am very much worried.
