Applicant who plans to go to China for marriage registration shall apply for a Single Status Affidavit Authentication, also called Affidavit of Marital Status or single/non-marital status certificate

Important Notice: Local marriage offices in China may have special preferences in the way you fill out your affidavit. Please check with the respective marriage office in China for details. We strongly recommend you send a draft copy to China to check for acceptability before you submit your application to us. VisaRite is not responsible for your error and/or the content of your document, nor the way you fill out your document. Authenticated Single Status Affidavit is normally valid for 6 months from the date of signature.

STEP 1 - Complete and Notarize Affidavit of Marital Status Form

  • Download and fill out the pre-formatted Affidavit of Marital Status
  • Please sign it in presence of the notary. The notary should add an acknowledge statement such as "Signed and sworn (or affirm) to before me this__________day of_______________, 20___." and complete with notary seal and signature.

STEP 2 - Apostilled by the Secretary of State

  • The notarized Affidavit of Marital Status form should be apostilled by the Secretary of State. Once apostilled, the staple(s) must not be removed, or it will invalidate the document.
