Marriage Requirements


It is normal for couples wanting to get married in China for one of them to be a Chinese citizen or to be a resident in the country. They will need to apply to get married to their local civil affairs office with a complete marriage registration form and all other documents need to be translated into the Chinese language. The Chinese partner will need to have a certificate of marriageability, birth certificate, household registration book, health certificate and a letter from their parents giving them permission to marry a foreigner. The partner who is a resident will need a passport, residency permit, health certificate, 3 photos of the couple together, registration fee and a certificate of marriage. The marriage office usually reviews the documents prior to approving the application in about an hour. They then issue a marriage certificate.
