It is usual for couples getting married in China that one is a Chinese citizen or one is a resident. They will need to apply to their local civil affairs office taking with them a completed marriage registration form and other documents which all need to be translated into the Chinese language. A Chinese citizen will need to produce a certificate of marriageability, birth certificate, household registration book, and a letter from their parents giving them permission to marry a foreigner. A foreign partner will need to produce a passport, Chinese residence permit, health certificate, 3 photos of the couple taken together, registration fee and a certificate of marriageability. It takes about an hour for the marriage registration office to review the documents before granting approval, after which they will issue a marriage certificate.
