Nanning starts online marriage reservation
Nanning civil affairs bureau in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region officially launched an online reservation service for marriage registrations on Feb 18.
People can enter the registration page through channels such as the official website of Nanning civil affairs bureau, the official WeChat account of Nanning civil affairs bureau as well as the official website of the Civil Affairs Department of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.
Reservations for issues including marriage, divorce, replacement of marriage certificates and replacement of divorce certificates are available.
Reservations should be made two workdays in advance, while those who wish to cancel their reservation should do so at least one workday in advance.
A preliminary review of materials is available for marriage registration and the replacement of marriage certificates. People can hand in scanned copies or photos of relevant materials online in advance and finish the rest of the process at the marriage registration office, increasing handling efficiency. Those who haven't handed in the entire or unqualified materials will get a text message to remind them to hand in the rest of the materials.
On-site reservations are also available over the upcoming three months as a "buffer period", but all marriage reservations in Nanning are expected to be made online by May, with on-site reservations only available for special groups such as the elderly who cannot use the internet.
