We are an international couple (I am from Italy, my partner is from Iran). Until now we always overcame Schengen visa requirements by meeting in Turkey, where we can both enter with just an ID card.
The Italian embassy in Teheran is plagued with corruption, it's basically impossible to even get an appointment for applying and this situation has not changed in 3 years.
I have a salary that could sustain both of us, a place to stay and we would like to be together for finally getting married here. Since Italy does not provide a marriage visa, the official guideline is to apply for a tourist visa. A proof of employment, property and an appropriate bank account budget are required in order to process and pass the visa request.
My partner is currently unemployed, and has no properties. Given the fact that these fair requests are made to avoid illegal immigration and overstaying under a tourist visa, but our purpose is to create a family and live together, is there a way to bypass these requirements that make no sense for us and also prevent us to accomplish one of the basic human rights like having a family?
I want to make clear that the Italian consulate in Teheran does not provide civil office services, so getting married in Iran is not possible, and the Iranian marriage has no value in Italy. Turkey provides a civil marriage under the Monaco Treaty but only for residents and Iranian authorities in Turkey do not allow a foreigner to marry outside the country, stating that they are not authorized to release the appropriate documentation.
What is going to happen if we just show up at the border without a visa but with the intention of marriage that will be confirmed by the marriage itself afterwards?
This is my only idea left.
Thanks for your replies. This is not meant to be a desperate or sentimental appeal, I just hope this community can help me like it always happened before.
