In the world outside of China it is straightforward to transfer personal money from one bank account in one country to a bank account in another country if you have the account numbers of both as well identification and proof of address.

In China is it different.

It can depend on what bank you have your account in China and the country you want to transfer to.

The Chinese bank might tell you that it 'does not recognise your country' and make it impossible for you to do this.

Check before-hand that you bank in China will do this - bring a trusted local friend if you can not speak Chinese sufficiently.

I only brought my passport and tax compliance information with me (i was told that was all i would need), only to be told that my home country 'did not exist'.

Your bank can also tell you what if you need to bring anything else.

I just transfered 50000 euro online - no big deal just have to tell them a reason otherwise it will be blacklisted. The reasons you can choose are stupid anyways i just took housing fund. 2 Days later they called and ask what is the reason. Anyways i transfered with ICBC, you just need your IBAN and BIC and you can just do all by urself online, no papers etc needed

Please do not give out answers to questions like this. If you want to be able to move money out of this country, be smart. and keep your mouth shut on public forums.

I use Western Union. It is a bit more difficult. I found a Western Union near my parents home in the USA. And, I found a Western Union in my town in China. Many Postal Banks in China have Western Union. You can find the locations on the Western Union websites. I pay a small fee. But, it is nothing more than a bank fee. Once I transfer the fee, I email my parents with the acceptance code the bank gives me. My parents go to their Western Union locations, present their ID and the acceptance code, and they leave with the cash in hand. The first time you transfer, it will take about an hour for all the paperwork at the China WU locations to finish. But, after you have all the paperwork done, the next time should take less than 30 minutes. Just take all the papers fromt he first time with you so they can copy the information.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
