Vaskar Khan, who is 43 and lives in Carlton Street, Portadown, is charged with seeking leave to enter or remain in the UK by deception.
Monica Fernandes Bathala, 30 and from Portugal, is charged with assisting unlawful immigration.
The pair appeared at Lisburn Magistrates' Court on Saturday after their suspected sham marriage was busted by the UK Border Agency in Dublin.
Khan, who was also charged with having two pieces of false ID, was remanded in custody to appear again at Craigavon Magistrates' on 23 March.
Bathala was bailed to re-appear at the same court on the same date.
Earl Aiken of the Border Agency in NI said: "We will investigate any instances where we believe immigration offences are being committed and bring our case before the courts."
