hukou cancelled, how to obtain Chinese birth certificate?

11 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I read some posts here about obtaining Chinese birth certificate. I noticed many people said they can get one by going to the hukou register office.

However, my 'hukou' is cancelled when I moved to Hong Kong when I was 6.

I asked my mother go back to the hospital I was born and see if they could give her anything. But all she got is a small paper saying 'She gave birth to a boy on that day'.

The only thing to show our relationship is her divorce certificate, which mentioned my name as her child.

Is there way I can still get my birth certificate?

Thanks! :)

What's her birth year?

There are 2 options I can suggest:

1. 1980 or younger, her record can be found in chinese Hukou even cancelled.

2. Asking her parents in Hongkong to apply the affidavit birth certificate of her under oath the facts surrounding her birth.

1990

do you have any equivalent document issued in Hong Kong? If you still live in Hong Kong, I'd attempt to get something from HKSAR government, somehow.

I can obtain a 'Certificate of Registered Particulars' from HKSAR Gov. But can this replace the 'birth certificate'?

Under the Registration of Persons Ordinance, you can apply for a Certificate of Registered Particulars showing the particulars registered in your identity card records, such as your name, residential address, date of birth, place of birth, marital status and name of spouse. The fee for the certificate is HK$385.

If the Hukou record can still be found, then what is the next step?

I am now living overseas. My mother told me she went to the notary office in China and was told that I need to go to a lawyer in HK and sign a letter to 'authorize' her get documents for me.

You should be able to get a Chinese Power of Attorney form at the Chinese consulate in the U.S. for this purpose, although the Secretary of State certification (a la the single certificate) may be required - inquire at the consulate.

See Apartment Certificate in China, Foreign Spouse Must Appear? about a different type of legal document.

I am actually pretty confused with the whole process now.

So if my hukou record can still be found, what do I do next? (>what should I tell my mother to do next?)

As for the power of attorney, I live in the middle east right now on a 'visitor visa.' There is a Chinese consulate here and I do travel often. But can i still get the POA even I am on a visitor visa? What is the POA for? Police office? Hukou office? or for the notary office?

You said, "My mother told me she went to the notary office in China and was told that I need to go to a lawyer in HK and sign a letter to 'authorize' her get documents for me."

This letter of authorization allows her to go to the notary office on your behalf. It is called a "power of attorney", since it allows an attorney or other trusted individual to conduct legal business on your behalf. The "business" is with the notary office in China, so it needs to be authenticated for use in China.

The Chinese consulate where you are should be able to tell you what you need to do for this. No need to go to Hong Kong.
