Answered by Andy | May. 15, 2023 00:31

To make your marriage legal in China, you should follow the 3 steps:
1. Entrust an international notary lawyer or notary public to notarize the marriage certificate registered in Dubai;

2. Send the notarized marriage certificate to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Dubai for certification;

3. Send the marriage certificate certified by Dubai's diplomatic department to the Chinese Embassy in Dubai for certification.

After getting your marriage certificate motorized by China, you can apply for a family reunion visa.

Visa for 2 years
I submit my application and I took an appointment but I need to know if it is available to take a visa to china for 2 years and how much it cost

Answered by Bruce | Mar. 23, 2023 18:31

It's not very possible to apply for a 2-year visa unless you have traveled to China very frequently before. Usually, a single-entry costs USD30.
