updated on:2019-02-20 09:16

According to the Civil Affairs Department of Jiangsu Province, since February 20th, parties involved in foreign-related marriage matters can bring relevant documents and supportive materials to the marriage registration office that is stationed in the locality(county, city or district) where the residency (hukou) of the Chinese citizen is registered. This policy also applies to marriage matters involving parties from Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan and overseas Chinese.

As more foreign-funded enterprises enter Chinese market, our social environment has become more open. People are treating "foreign identities" in a more rational way. Foreign-related marriages are nothing new. In recent years, the number of foreign-related marriage registrations in Jiangsu has been holding steady at around 1400 annually. Marriage partners of Jiangsu residents come from more than 50 countries and regions while “foreign sons-in-law” outnumbers “foreign daughters-in-law”.

Prior to this, the foreign-related marriage registration in Jiangsu can only be handle by Jiangsu Province of Foreign-related Marriage and Adoption Registration Center in Nanjing. This policy change is expected to bring great convenience to the parties involved in foreign marriage issues. As a result, the 14-year-old Jiangsu Province of Foreign-related Marriage and Adoption Registration Center will terminate its historical mission and stop handling this service.
