Hello all! I’m new here but I’m having a hard time finding answers to this online in the general pool. 
 

im getting engaged and potentially married to a Nigerian citizen in Ghana end of February. I know there’s certain papers I need to bring with me (birth certificate, divorce decree, etc.) but if I bring them and Ghana officials find them in my baggage, will it rouse suspicion like it would here in the US? I want to be prepared but I don’t want to ruin the whole thing. Thank you for any help!

Is this somebody you have met?

Not yet in person. I trust him and we’ve been together for over a year talking every day through messenger/video calls. I have lots of friends and family who know him as well.

Spend more time in person, getting married on first meeting is not a bright idea.

So is your plan to move, unclear.

Getting married on the 1st trip is not recommended  / can result in a denial

 

but if you do take important papers ,  keep them with you in carry on luggage /checked in luggage can and has been lost and you don't want these ID papers in the hands of anyone else

For what reason would anyone be sucpicious?  taking these papers to marry  is not an issue

Thanks. We don’t plan on marrying at this exact time. The original question: If such paperwork were found entering the US, visa fraud would be suspected.i was just wondering if it would be the same upon entering a country other than the US

I doubt the issue would arise, if it does just be ready to explain why you chose to bring such paperwork.
