According to the news from Ministry of Foreign Affairs, few Chinese citizen and foreigners registered their marriages in Chinese Embassy located in the country of the foreigner. However, it is stated in the Regulation of Registration of Marriage that where Chinese citizen decides to engage in a marriage with foreigner, they shall register their marriage in the authority located in the residential place of Chinese citizen. In other words, the registration made by Chinese Embassy will not be protected by Chinese Law.
Reminder from Ministry of Foreign Affairs: in order to protect their own interests, where Chinese citizen is going to engage in a Chinese marriage, the registration shall be made in accordance with the Regulation of Registration of Marriage. For further information and procedure, may inquire the local department of civil affairs or authorities of marriage registration.
