[quote=CHRISTINE,387302]The Marriage Application The application is equivalent to a civil marriage in many western countries but it is entirely administrative, there is no ceremony at all. The event normally takes well under one hour, sometimes as little as 15 minutes. You should obtain the forms and complete them in advance. So then you can attend the Civil Affairs Bureau – and in some cities you will have a special section for 'international marriages' - and submit the application with the following (there are notes and explanations after the list): • Both: Single Status Certificate, If applicable, finalised divorce papers or death certificate of ex-spouse for the widowed • Both: Birth certificate • Together: Three official style photos of the couple together – shops doing visa photos do these and know the required format • Together: The fee • Chinese person: Household registration book (hukou) • Foreigner: Passport • Foreigner: Notarised translations in Chinese of all originals not in Chinese (except the passport. There are official translators who provide this service in China. When everything is completed satisfactorily, you will leave – as a married couple! You will either be given you marriage certificate as you leave or you might be asked to collect it in a few days. [/quote]
