    Certificate of No Impediment

    Post by ESSEXBOY25 on 11/02/10, 04:40 pm

    Hi all,
    Just wondered if you could answer a couple of questions and clarify some things about getting the CNI in UK before getting married in August in China.
    I have read quite a few of the posts on this but I would just like to confirm that I can do the following: (1) Write a CNI based on the template given on the website and have it Notarised (2) Go to Milton Keynes to have it authenticated (3) Take it to the Chinese Embassy in Manchester to get it authenticated by them.
    Also, should I write my intended wife's name in pinyin and chinese characters?

    Any help appreciated,
    Cheers,
    Scott

    I just wrote my wife's name in English characters and didn't have any problems. I had it notarised by a solicitor then legalised in London and at the Chinese Consulate and it was accepted OK in Nanning.

    If you know a Notary in your area, check the website for the links to the Notary Society. Have it done by a Notary, they may offer the service to get it Legalised at Milton Keynes, then you will get it back and can take it to Manchester.
    I can't remember if I put my wife's name on the document, I think it was just about me. If you tell the Notary / Solicitor what it is for, they may or may not ask you for her name.
    But I am sure you just need the documents to prove who you are and if you have been married before.

    Hi, just on the subject of the Statutory Declaration
    I am trying to get my ex wife's passport number and issue date to prove her Nationality. I can then add this information to the Stat Dec. She is not being too helpful here !!!. She is insisting on contact details of the marriage office in Nanning so she can contact them and confirm this is needed. Does anyone have the full contact details ? or any suggestions re the ex wife !!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks,
    Kev

    Visit a Solicitor and have them write her a letter asking for the details, explain why and that contacting nanning would do no good.

    Kev,
    Ask your wife if she speaks Chinese, if she does then give her the phone number the Marriage office in Nanning.

    She is being a little awkward. You could give her the Chinese Embassy's phone number and tell her to contact them with her questions as they do speak English and would be able to answer her questions.

    Many thanks Al and David. It's nice to have it confirmed. I'm sure the Notary will know more as you've said Al, so I will wait for their advice.
    Cheers,

    Scott, could I ask have you ever been married before ?
    If not, then get your CNI at a registrar office - much cheaper.
    If yes, then go to a Notary who can include more details in your CNI.

    Which draft CNI did you see on the site ?

    I have not been married before. So this being the case, should I contact the Registrar Office?

    PS. I found the draft at http://www.nanningandchinainfo.co.uk/marriage/before.html

    Kev, In Nanning details of your ex wifes nationality is NOT required.
    A Health Certificate is NOT required.
    I confirmed this on Wednesday.

    The information given by the Chinese Embassy on Marriage covers all of the regulations in China, but each province sets it's own requirements.
    In Nanning, in the case of divorced/widowed applicants, provided all of the divorce/death details are clearly stated then the CNI will be accepted.
    If the divorce/death details are not clearly stated on the CNI, then they will ask for the divorce/death certificates as proof, and these must also be legalised by the FCO and the Chinese Embassy/Consulate.

    Forget the ex mate !

    Hi Scott, A registrar is a lot cheaper if your single, never married. They will issue your CNI after 21 days. It is valid for 3 months thereafter.
    Once legalised by the FCO and the Chinese Consulate it is valid for 6 months.

    After obtaining your CNI you can use an agent to have it legalised by the FCO and CE in London in one go. Why do you want to go to Milton Keynes ?

    The Chinese Consulate no longer accept personal visits for Visas or legalisations, (unless your Chinese). You must now use CVASC, their authorised agents.
    You can make an appointment, and go in person, or send it by post. Check the CVASC website http://www.visaforchina.org.uk/visaen/visaView.html?method=index

    With your location (Leeds) you may find it more conveniant to have your CNI legalised using China Visa Direct in London.
