Weird... for me it was quite an "easy" task... I had to go to a notary public (to get it
translated) n then to the ministry of foreign affairs (to get it certified). The docs were issued
here in Xiamen, but since we were in beijing, they did it over there for us.

Notary Public in chinese is 公证处 (Gong Zhen ?) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs is 外交部
领事司认证处 (Wai Jiao Bu something). But I believe this is to "convert" chinese documents
to foreign documents. For the opposite, I believe u need to send the document back to your
Embassy or Consulate to get them translated n certified. U call ur Embassy for that info.
