Since you didnt have any luck with responses so far.. I would suggest that you go and get a letter from your pastor since you are a christian stating that you are a member of the church and that he knows you .. for however long and then that you are an unmarried bachelor and have him sign it.. You can get it notarized to make it even more official. Or try getting it attested at the regional atestation office you mentioned. I have gottten such eligibility certificate because I got married in a different state and not a different country.

One other thing is whoever required you to produce might have a template of the certificate.. which I think is best if completed by your pastor and then attested by a government official. Or go to chinese embassy where you got the visa and find out if you can get it attested by the consular officer even.

Good luck,

VJ

i believe that you can find out more about this by going to your local marriage registrar, since i am christian i had to get the certificate from the church, for you i would advise finding out whether the one your notary made is the proper one. next send it to the ministry for external affairs to get attested and then i believe that it would require further attestation from the fijian embassy and you could call them to find out. after all that is done then i believe the document is valid to use as a certificate of single status.

Hi Vincent,

have read your comments here.Can i ask you one doubt in single status certificate matter?.is'nt it acceptable, i mean affidavit with attorney.I'm a hindu guy and planing to marry a bulgarian girl.I also need this certificate.I got an information from district registering office that it is not possible to give such certificate.What am planing to do is get an affidavit from district notary then it get attested by state home ministry then apostilled from external affairs ministry.Will this procedure work or not? or do i need to attest the docs from notary with district registrar? please let me know your thoughts.If you have the format of this affidavit can you please send me?.

Thanks in advance,

sorry for the late reply

well in my experience the procedure for me to get the certificate was different, the best way for u to find out how to get the certificate would either be for u to go to the state home ministry and ask them the procedure or goto the marriage registration office and they should be able to help you. I had also gotten an affidavit from a notary but i was informed that the rules had changed and therefore the procedures also. i strongly suggest you first enquire first at the marriage registration office, i am quite confident that they should be able to help you out. Some other adivce would be for u to give the certificate to an agent, i used UAE Xchange and they got the apostilles and attestation done very quickly. One more thing when u do get the right certificate you have to take it to get attested by a district notary hope that this helps you.

Hello Kunal,

In the former soviet union they can easily get single certificates. What would be a good plan is for the both of you to get the civil marriage done in India (easier) and get the Church marriage in Kazakhstan

Single Status Certificate for Marriage

Steps
1) Get a notary attestation on the stamp paper declaring your
single status
2) Get it attested by SDM (Sub Divisional Megistrate)
3) Get APOSTILLE from Ministry of External Affairs
4) Get APOSTILLE from Embassy of the concerned Country

This works as Single status certificate.

Hi Vincent,

I am in a similar situation. I am based in the UK, but an Indian citizen and a hindu. I am planning to marry my girlfriend, who is from China. After reading all the responses here, I am a bit confused. Could you kindly give me a suggestion? Do I get a letter from a religious body or from the local council/corporation, and then get it attested? Because, now all such event have to be recorded in the register at such local bodies.
