About marrying a saudi man

Hi, im filipina but currently living in rome italy. I wanna ask few questions about marrying a saudi man/how to get married to a saudi man. Obviously speaking im involved to a saudi man for almost 7 years and we are planning to get married. He's telling me its hard to get married in saudi(riyadh) so the first plan is to get married here in italy or in philippines then after that he's next plan is to process something in Saudi government so he can bring me there as a wife. I dont know if he's not that knowledgeable about the rules in his country because i read some articles and saying need permission first from the Saudi government, by the way he's 37years old (single and never get married to anyone)and i am 31.
Sorry if my message is too long just want to explain everything and i hope someone can help me to understand everything. Thank u so much 🙂

Yes dear he need a permission to marry you from the government. This permit give him the right to bring you as a wife usually it takes a long time to issue such one (need some justification) . The permission can be issued only from the ministry of
Interior.

Hi! I am a filipina married to a Saudi. Tama, kailangan ng marriage permission from their government for a them to marry non-saudi. Tell him to apply in the emarah or MOI.

It's a hit and miss actually but nevertheless, he MUST apply first before saying that it is hard. My husband applied and alhamdullilah it wasnt that hard as what others are saying.

Your saudi has the approved permission na ba? Medicals and others are to follow na kasi after the permission will be granted. If not yet, then you dont have to do anything.

First things first, tell your saudi to apply sa emarah or MOI. You dont have to do anything at all but to wait.

Hi po. I am Filipina. Me and my Saudi man is planning to get permission in MOI. But my question is there any  possibility na ma approve Ang age gap po nmin is 12 years. Mas younger po sia sa akin. Ask ko rin po siya Kung inform Nia muna family or parents Nia before we proceed to MOI. He told me once he got approval from MOI that's the time he will inform his family. Is it right? And do I need to accompany him in MOI? Please help me..

How young is the Saudi man? My husband informed his family about me before we got married. It didnt have any bearing with his application for the permission since the permission will be his alone. He applies alone and you dont apply with him. He does all the papers alone without you.

My husband applied at the emarah in ha'il city and not directly to MOI in Riyadh.

Anyway, feel free to private message me.

He can marry you in Italy without the marriage permission (civil+islamic) and this marriage will be valid worldwide apart from Saudi.
Thus even if he marries you without the marriage permission he still needs to get it at some point before the marriage is legally recognised in Saudi (eg. to get you a visa/residence permitt, to have inheritance rights, to register you in the family card etc). Without the marriage permission Saudi Embassies are not allowed to legalize the marriage certificate for use in Saudi.

Despite not being an easy/fast task he needs to start to consider applying for the permission as soon as possible as it could well take from 1 to 3 years to finalize it (maybe even less if he is lucky).

He can even apply through the Saudi Embassy in Italy for the permission and they will forward his papers to MOI for the processing. Then every time he is in Riyadh he can follow up on his papers.
As he is male the marriage permission process does not need his family consent-it is something that involves him alone, but if the family knows they can help along with visiting MOI to follow up on his paper.
