    CNI in Beijing

    Post by Graham on 14/08/12, 01:30 am

    Hi all,

    We went to UK consulate last week, in Kerry center 21 floor, Beijing.
    We completed the "notice to marry"
    This cost 635 rnb after me producing the decree absolute.
    We go back in 21 days to same place to collect the CNI, this costs also 635 rnb
    Actually a friend who lives in Beijing will collect it for us, and post it to us, said friend needs letter of authorisation from me to collect.
    We have a provisional wedding date of 6th September in Haerbin
    Less cost than flying to UK, and doing the procedure there with the Notary public, the Legalisation office, and then the translation at the Chinese consulate in Manchester.

    I don't think that the Chinese Consulate in Manchester does translations.... and you would really need any translations done in the town where you are marrying in China which should be where your bride was born...

    Hello David,

    Perhaps I was not clear.
    The CNI is being done in Beijing.

    I have just received an email back from Kerry center in BJ as follows,,,,,


    Thanks for your email.

    Please make sure you are aware of below actions:


    Make an appointment with us for your CNIs collection by telephone or email

    the authorization letter needs to be signed by you, it has to be original copy.

    Hi Graham, when I was in Nanning to get married I had all my documents translated there, to save time when we arrived in Guilin. We checked with the Guilin marriage office, when we arrived, to make sure all the documents were ok. They weren't! The Nanning translations were not accepted, they had to be done in Guilin, Ying's home city! Great! We had to pay a premium to have them translated straight away for our wedding the next day.

    Congratulations to you both on your forth coming wedding,

    Cheers,
    Chris and Ying.

    A CNI issued by the British Embassy/Consulate in both English and Chinese will be accepted at any marriage registry office in China.

    There is no need to have further translations made in the home town.
    These types of documents are not questioned by any Chinese government office, because they are issued at the highest level, by the highest authority in China.

    Hi Graham and Fay

    Tina and myself wish you all best wishes for your big day.

    I hope next time I am over in China that we can meet up in Weifang, last time it was like ships in the night.

    When you say getting married in Hearbin did you Hardin in the North. If so I have tried to get Tina to go there in January and February to visit the Ice City, which I am told fantastic, but she say's it's very cold and can go down to -35C

    Regards

    Derk

    Hello Derek,

    Thank you for your best wishes.
    Yes, we will go to Haerbin, Heilongjiang.

    There they have the wonderful "Ice and Snow Festival"
    I seem to recollect it starts round about beginning of December, and ends around end of February.
    there doesn't seem to be fixed dates, as they will go "off the weather"
    Quite cold, but I don't think it was -35, probably just -30.

    While you are there, take a trip to the Haerbin Tiger park.
    Quite an eye opener.

    Gra.

    Hi Graham

    I am told the ICE city usualy last for around 6 weeks during January and February it all depends on how cold it is. People say its wonderful to go and visit Harbin during that time.

    One Tina's aunties was down in Qingdao 2 weeks ago. She lives in Hei he its about 500k north of Harbin. Which get even colder up there.
