Unless you have heard differently from someone at the Ministry of Interior, it is true that a Saudi woman must be not less than 25 years of age when applying for the marriage permission. Sounds like you will be needing a wasta. Will it work? You will find that out only after you put your wasta to work. Insha’Allah he will be successful. For further reading, please refer to Saudi Marriage Procedure Guidelines and Marriage Permission? Not In A Million Years…Or Maybe Three Years.
Dear Tara, I am Portuguese man and she is a 20 year old Saudi woman. Me and her father went already to apply in the MOI [Ministry of Interior] in Riyadh, however, I have been reading she must be at least 25. Everything is ok, unless the age. You know if this is possible to accept? If not, i must use a wasta? That would work? I love her so much and so does she. We really need to get this permission inshAllah. I saw your blog and maybe you can help with some tips. Thanks you very much, Tiago
