CHINA - strict regulations and delays
06/02/2023 08:34

Dear Sir or Madam,

Due to the massive volume of visa applications, the Chinese consular provider is currently experiencing a delay in the release of appointments (2-3 weeks) as well as longer waiting times for the submission of fingerprints.

Therefore, we kindly ask you to allow enough time for fingerprinting appointments as well as a general time buffer between application and departure for upcoming trips to China.

In addition, the consulate is currently very strict regarding the information in the visa application and requires that ALL items in the visa application are complete and correct. Incorrect and incomplete applications will result in rejection of the application.

Thank you and best regards

Dear Sir or Madam,

Visa applications in which an academic title (e.g. Dr., Mag., Ing.,...) is indicated in the name will NOT be accepted as of now.

Therefore, we kindly ask you to omit academic titles in the visa application and to enter the name in the visa application as it can be found in the reading line of the passport.

Thank you and best regards
