The Sino-foreign couple must go together, in person to the appropriate marriage registration office and submit a completed marriage registration application form (available at the marriage registration office). Together with the application form, the couple must submit a number of other documents:
 
Chinese Partner
A certificate of marriageability (obtainable from his/her danwei)
A certificate of birth
Household registration book (hukou)
A health certificate (obtainable from a regional-level local hospital)
A letter from the parents of the Chinese partner giving permission for their child to marry a foreigner (this letter should include the index fingerprint of both parents below their signatures and date)
 
Foreign Partner
A current passport
Chinese residence permit
A health certificate from a local hospital designated by the marriage registration office
Three photos of the marrying couple, taken together
A registration fee
A certification of marriageability

The certification of marriageability requires further explanation. Basically, the marriage registration office needs a form from the foreign partner’s home government stating he/she is not already married in his/her home country. Every foreign government has its own version of this type of form with its own requirements for obtaining one. Couples will need to check the embassy website of the foreign partner’s home country in China for details on how to obtain this kind of certification. (Chinese translations must accompany foreign-language documents.)
 
Application requirements may vary from office to office. When an individual visits the appropriate marriage registration office to pick up an application form and find out which local hospital(s) the foreign partner must get checked at, he/she should also check to see if the office¡¯s requirements differ from those listed here.
 
After the establishment of the new marriage law, it now takes the marriage registration office about an hour or so to review the submitted documents and approve of the application.

Once the marriage registration office approves of the application and registers the marriage, it will issue a marriage certificate to be picked up by the couple.
