How to authenticate Single Status Affidavit for use in China?

Any individuals who are planning to register for marriage in China are required to apply for an Affidavit of Single Status authentication, or sometimes called Single Status Certificate/Statement/Affidavit.

As local marriage offices in China may have special requirements or preferences for filling out your affidavit, it is best to check with your respective office for details. We highly recommend to send a draft to the office for approval before you proceed with the authentication. CEV is not liable for any errors or discrepancies in the contents or completion of your form. An authenticated Affidavit of Single Status is usually valid for 6 months starting from the signature date.
