In order to get married in China it is customary for one of the couple to be a Chinese citizen or to be a resident. To get married a couple need to apply to their local civil affairs office. They will need to take with them a completed marriage registration form and all documents in a foreign language will need to be translated into Chinese. A Chinese partner will need to have a Certificate of Marriageability, birth certificate and a household registration book (Hukou), health certificate and a letter from their parents giving their child permission to marry a foreigner. The foreign partner requires a passport, Chinese resident permit, health certificate, 3 photos of the couple taken together, registration fee and a certificate of marriageability. It only takes about an hour for the documents to be reviewed and the application approved. Once the Marriage Office has approved the application they will issue a marriage certificate which the couple can collect.
