    These new regulations were sneeked onto the Chinese Embassy website sometime in January !

    Just to clarify, your Certificate of No Impediment still has to be legalised by the FCO and the Chinese Embassy.

    The new regulation, now requires you to get your divorce documents, or widows death certificate, (if applicable), legalised by the FCO only.

    All the above to be translated into Chinese, and photocopied, for submission at the PSB, in order to marry in China.
