My fiance sent her police certificate that she got from the gong zheng chu. We just got an email from Guangzhou that says:

Please provide a Police Certificate that covers your entire period in China from the age of 16.

Where can she get this? We are at a loss. She lived in multiple cities since she was 16, does she need to get a record from the gong zheng chu in every city she lived in since she was 16? I don't know if that is even possible. Did anyone else do this?

She thinks she needs to go to the police in the city of her registered address and get the certificate, and then take it to the gong zheng chu to translate + notarize.

Does this sound correct? We don't want to waste any more time with this.

Thank you

Did she obtain the certificate that was submitted from where her household registration is? If not, then that may be the issue.

well, living in different places has some consequences, aye?

for example - a hukuo change is needed when going to university in other city.

a hukuo change is needed when working in other city for more than a year.

if she not do this, then how to show it? I'm always perplexed by this. I suggest engaging with Eunice Wang of Marc Ellis' china office, ask her this question - she can guide you about it.

I rarely suggest attornies and consults - but for this - IME Eunice can get you sorted. Google 'Marc Ellis Immigration' for the china office # and his website.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

My wife went to university in shanghai, and went back to her home town after graduation. When we went through the visa process, we only have to get police certificate aka (white book) from her home town as that's where her current hukou is located at.

You guys are right, she is living in a different city than her registered hukuo. So, tomorrow she is going back to her hukuo city to get the proper police record and then she will bring it to the gong zhen chu to translate. This should be the last step.

if she registered hukuo each time,

then the last place will have records going back , easy for them to check it.

seems the OP not get it done at hukuo city anyway, so gotta overcome that and quickly.

Yep, that was our mistake. So far it has cost us at least a month extra time. It will probably take 6 extra weeks because of this.
