  3. Chinese Essential Documents - White Books Police Certificates for Foreigners Living in China If you need a police certificate for any reason from having lived in China, it may be possible to obtain one from the local PSB Entry and Exit Bureau. You will need a Chinese work permit and a letter from your employer. Contact the PSB folks for the details of what they need. You WILL NOT need one for the US visa process, unless you are notified otherwise. This thread from 2016 covers the (ultimately successful) efforts by a couple of foreigners - Police (criminal record) report process is broken from the British embassy http://ukinchina.fco...-other-services Quote A report on their services Jan., 2016 - http://candleforlove...ments/?p=626584 Someone on VJ (apparently a Chinese woman) reported that "You should specifically ask for a "无犯罪记录“, Chinese companies and schools require it all the time so it should not be something new, and have it notarized at the local notary." 无犯罪记录 (Wú fànzuì jìlù) translates to "No criminal records", according to Google translate http://www.visajourn...hina/?p=8314060 The police certificate posted by Kyle in 2009 (see http://candleforlove...books/?p=629619) shows 未受刑事处分公证书 (Wèi shòu xíngshì chǔfèn gōngzhèng shū) or - "No criminal sanction public certificate" according to Google, or "Notarial Certificate of Non-Criminal Records" according to the Notarial translation. According to this, the thing to ask for at the PSB is 未受刑事处分 (Wèi shòu xíngshì chǔfèn)

    Birth certificate problems

    For an experience of what happens when you submit "an affidavit of some sort in lieu of a Chu Sheng Zheng Ming Shu", I would refer you back to the original poster of this thread - YOURSELF - at http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/684336-birth-certificate-problems/ If you want to claim that your notarial certificate of birth is UNOBTAINABLE, you will need to make an effort to contact the notarial office that has/HAD your records. Start with a Google (or Baidu) search for "玉林. 公证处֤֤֤", using the name of your own city in Chinese characters. That should give you the contact information, and they should be able to tell you what to do

    Difficulty obtaining Birth Certificate and Hukou

    That hukou-ben should provide everything you need, including the mother's ID, through the Notarial Office where the hukou is located. The birth certificate would require DNA testing. Good luck with it!

    Difficulty obtaining Birth Certificate and Hukou

    Like I've said, your wife probably KNOWS which Notarial office will have her hukou. In her case, the records DO exist. Here's someone who DIDN'T know - Applicant Birth Certificate questions

    Difficulty obtaining Birth Certificate and Hukou

    To be clear, her hukou ben (or hukou book) is what I assume is in her father's possession. Her hukou is located at a provincial, or (most likely) prefectural level city, which is where her notarial certificate of birth would be issued. She obviously DOES have a hukou, since "She has a Chinese ID card and a Chinese passport". She most likely DOES know where this is - it is where she went to school, and can get medical and social services available in that area. You CAN contact that office, and find out what they will require for the notarial certificate of birth.

    Birth certificate problems

    Chinese birth certificates were not issued before 1996 - you will need a 出生公证书, or chu sheng gong zheng shu. See Chinese Essential Documents - White Books

    Renewing Chinese Passport of a GC holder in the USA

    That form is dated 2015 - you might check the Chicago site for a newer form.

    Renewing Chinese Passport of a GC holder in the USA

    Directions are in CHINESE, since people who hold Chinese passports ARE Chinese - check the consulate's website. You may submit a pre-paid self-addressed mailer (I believe they can take either USPS or FedEx) to have the passport mailed back to you. This form is from the New York consulate http://newyork.china-consulate.org/chn/zjfw/bgxz/hzlxz/P020150808092230717035.pdf
  11. No - no one does. The white book notarial marriage certificate has an indefinite life span. "The first type is a translation and an authentication of the marriage booklet. " This is the only kind that anyone is aware of. They may have been talking about the police report, which will also need to be in the notarial white book format and is only good for six months. Or they may have thought you wanted something else entirely. Just to make sure you're doing the right thing - There ARE no "notary publics" for Chinese documents - the correct term is Notarial Office, or Gong Zheng Chu (公证处). The notarial document is a 公证书, or gong zheng shu. These are CHINESE documents, NOT made to either your or the consulate's specification.

    No Criminal Police Certificate

    You can refer them to their own web site at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/Visa-Reciprocity-and-Civil-Documents-by-Country/China.html The title on the notarial certificate is 未受刑事处分公证书 (wei shou xing shi chu fen gong zheng shu) or "No criminal sanction public certificate"

    No Criminal Police Certificate

    The white book notarial certificate is an OFFICIAL Chinese document for use overseas, although it is occasionally not recognized as such.
