Q: Is a signed letter from her parents required?

There's an informative website that says that, in addition to the hukou, my fiance must also present a signed letter of permission from her parents? My fiance is over 20, so is this really necessary? It's not mentioned on any other relevant sites.

If you guys are ready to get hitched then getting the letter from her parents isn't an issue isn't it? Unless of course you are planning to elope?

And if she's only 20, I would definitely not even consider marriage (unless she's pregnant, in which case, you've both proven yourself to be too irresponsible to get married).
I should not have taken the bait. I wish the admin would do away with anonymous posting.

Unless rules have changed, you need a letter from the parents to apply for a spouse VISA from a consulate or an embassy. You will need the Hukou (here again, usually in the parent's hands) to apply for residency.

 

Why everything from the parents? Because in China, choices aren't yours to make, you always belong to someone else. Take it as a "warm tip".

A woman needs to be older than 22 in order to marry legally.

We didn't need that, but my wife was 26 when we got married.... oh, I think her mum was with us at the marriage office but only first attempt when they said one of our documents wasn't OK, so i got to take a bus to the embassy for a stamp and then we tried the next day again.

Nope, not anymore - you just need the hukou now. If you think about it, the hukou usually is a "signed letter," since it's usually in the hands of the head of the household, and you normally can't duplicate it, so the whole thing is redundant. If you can't get the hukou, sue for it, or apply for another one saying you "lost" it.

 

Married my wife at 22.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
