uk, marrying a Taiwanese in Taiwan.

Hi all,
We plan to marry early next year. I have just sent my Certificate of No Impediment to the Taiwan rep in Uk for it to be stamped(it has been notorised).
Do I need to get this translated and stamped again?
Do we need to get Name Chops?...What are they?
Do I need a police check here or Taiwan?
Do I need a medical health check, here or Taiwan?
I have my original birth certificate.
We plan to marry, then I will return to Uk and I-ling get her visa for uk.
Any 100% help would be appreciated.
Thx
Daveemitchell

You don't need anything to marry in Taiwan. Health, police and impediment checks are for you to get a residence visa in Taiwan, it sounds like you don't need one.

Don't think so, I imagine they stamp and translate it at the same time.

Do we need to get Name Chops?...What are they?
Most people seen to get by without them.

Do I need a police check here or Taiwan?
Do I need a medical health check, here or Taiwan?
Only if you want a residence visa to live in Taiwan. If you do, get a police check from Scotland Yard (if you've been living in the UK), then same procedure as your No Impediment Certificate. Health checks are cheaper and more tailor made in Taiwan.

... I think.... maybe.

Best to check with the Taiwan Office.
Er.... thingy.
