Hello @pk

Nice to hear from you again.

Did I understsand that correctly, that your fiancé needs your documents as well in order to apply for Ehefähigkeitszeugnis? If so, I think there is not much you can do at the moment. The problem is that German authorities rely on Pakistani lawyers in order to verify your documents. So they have to send them there and they only have limited ressources on-site. That's why this procedure takes such a long time.

The German embassies also usually ask you to not inquire about the progress of your case since that won't speed it up anyway. As far as I can see, the only option right now is to be patient and to wait for your documents to return.

Best regards,
