This question is from a foreign friend asking. Actually, I don’t really understand it, but I really want to help him, and those who needs.
Therefore, I have searched informations online and wrote this article, I hope I can help you! If any detail has not been written, please let me know by leaving a message.
What Do I Need When Marrying A Taiwanese In Taiwan?
The Legal Age
First of all, you must meet the minimum age limit of “male must be at least 18 years old and female must be at least 16 years old”.
If you are under the age of 20, you must first obtain the consent of a legal representative (usually yours parent), otherwise you cannot marry in Taiwan.
In addition, if your country has a minimum age for marriage, for example, 21 years old, then you must also abide by it.
When registering your marriage with the Taiwanese Household Registration Bureau, foreigner will need to provide:
- 護照: Your passport
- 單身證明: A certificate from your country showing you’re not already married, translated to Chinese and certified by a Taiwanese foreign mission
- 中文姓名申請書: A certified Chinese name declaration
- 身分證照片: ID photo within two years ( related regulations can be viewed here )
Please Note: The certificate of celibacy should be issued within three months. If it expired, you should apply for a new one.
And Taiwanese will need to provide:
- 身分證: Taiwan identity card
- 印章: Seal ( foreign spouse can sign on the spot )
- 戶口名簿: Household certificate
The above documents are checked and returned. So after checking, remember to take it away.
Process of Applying For Documents
Process of Applying For Certificate Of Celibacy
There are not many documents that seem to need to be prepared above. However, I searched it and found that it is very troublesome to apply for the certificate of celibacy. ( According to different countries, the application progress will be different )
Foreigner needs to apply in the Household Registration Bureau of your country. Some offices of countries or embassies can also apply it.
Each country has different regulations, so it is recommended to ask your own national unit first.
After the application for the certificate of celibacy, it must be stamped and certified in the foreign country national certification unit. This can prove that this document is ” true “.
The process of application and verification is very complicated, and the validity period of the document is three months.
Step1: Foreigner needs to apply for your certificate of celibacy from your country
Step2: The document must be verified by embassy of your country in Taiwan
Step3: The verified certificate of celibacy is handed over to the translation agency for translation into Chinese
Process of Applying For Chinese Name Declaration
I checked it online. The Chinese name declaration can be provided a standard form in the Household Registration Bureau. You can also click here to view the file.
If You Don’t Have A Chinese Name Yet:
Step1: Foreigner needs to take Chinese names first, you can consider translating English names into Chinese.
Step2: And please try to write the Chinese name if it’s hard to write, if you need to sign the Chinese name in the future, there will be no problem.
Jane has found two good websites here to help you know that which Chinese is the same pronunciation as your English name. I hope these can help you.
1) Foreign Name Comparison Table
You can use this website to compare which Chinese phonetic transcription is appropriate for your English name. ▲
2) Phonetic Query
Once you find the phonetic, enter this site, fill in your phonetic, and press the button of “開始查詢”. ▲
After pressing the start query, you will see the same-pronunciation Chinese, which can help you as a reference. ▲
I suggest that the Chinese name can be discussed with your Taiwanese spouse, as this will be permanently on the identity card.
The above is the content I collected on the Internet. I hope this helps you. Maybe some information is not organized, please leave a message to tell me.
Although the application process is cumbersome and there are pressures on deadlines, I have seen many people still successfully enter the auditorium.
I found that one of the couples didn’t even want to get married. But encouraged him because of a sentence:
These processes are all tests of marriage between you. If you give up, then the love of both of you can’t also stand the test.
This sentence is for the people who are about to get married, and I wish you a happy wedding.
