Hi All,

I know on Packet Three, it lists that:

"Persons who have served in the military in any country must provide an original copy of their military record. If exempted from military service, the applicant should also provide an original copy of the exemption record."

Do any of you know how this works in Algeria? My fiance has never served in the military in Algeria, but does this mean that we would need a copy of the exemption record? Does such a thing exist? Perhaps someone who has gone through the consulate at Algiers can explain this to me a little more clearly. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi, I'm in same case as your husband, did they ask for his military record at his interview? Keep me in touch please :)

PS: I think you're husband is right, "carte militaire" is enough.

Well, I emailed the Consulate in Paris, and they request a translated copy of the carte militiaire (into English), and then just to show them the original at the interview. We haven't had our interview yet!

Are you filing in Algiers? Or Parid also?

Nope, I'm filling in Algiers. Been student for almost 11 years, so they never called me to do my military duty. The problem now is that I don't have exemption card or any other paper related to that. According to an old topic here in VJ, they don't ask for it...but it still worries me. If I go now and try to get the card, probably they'll force me to do my military service and I'll be stuck for a whole year.

Good luck for your interview guys, I wish you all the best of luck. You're almost there:)

Once the interview done, pls keep me in touch, especially if they'll request the military record or nope. Thank you:)

My husband hasn't served in the Algerian Military either and now I am worried that he might have to.. That will mess everything up! Did anyone find out for sure if you need the military card or not?

It shouldn't be a problem, but since you're doing spouse visa which takes more than a year to get, if I was him I'll do my military service and get rid of it ( it's just 12 months now). That's my own opinion, right now I cannot do it cuz I don't have 12 months.

Good luck :)
