About the Visa Centre

1. Background to the establishment of the Visa Centre
China’s rapid opening up in recent years, amid the ongoing globalization process, has led to a remarkable increase in its people-to-people exchanges with other countries, creating a great demand for Chinese visas(mainland only).


Chinese Embassies and Consulates-General have been working hard to improve the quality of their visa services; however, with limited staff and available space, many have become overwhelmed with the increasing quantity of visa applications.


In recent years, many countries facing such problems have chosen to introduce the Visa Application Service Centre system offering a wider range of more efficient services to visa applicants; Chinese Embassies and Consulates-General handling a large quantity of visa applications in certain key countries decided to follow this trend.

Up to now, dozens of Chinese Visa Application Service Centres have been thus established in Europe, Asia, Oceania, and North America to provide quality Chinese visa(mainland only) services. 

2.What the Application Center offers
  The Chinese Visa Application Service Center (hereinafter referred to as the “Application Center”) is a commercial service organization registered in accordance with local laws and regulations and recognized by a Chinese Embassy or Consulate-General to handle the daily routine work of processing ordinary visa and authentication applications. However, it operates independently of diplomatic missions and is neither a branch nor an affiliated organ. Its main services are:
(1)  To receive visa or authentication applications and ensure their application documents meet Chinese Government requirements for smooth processing in the various categories.
(2)  To provide applicants with intermediate business services, including computer entry of basic information, and transmission of the passport, visa, document of authentication and other application documents between the Chinese Embassy or Consulate-General and  the application Center.
(3)  To collect visa fees and authentication fees, whether for normal, express or rush service in accordance with the requirements of a Chinese Embassy or Consulate-General and, on their behalf, deliver the passport, visa, documents and document of authentication to the applicant.
(4)  To release visa and authentication information in a timely manner, answer customer inquiries and provide assistance through the Application Center’s website, information desk, telephone, and e-mail.
(5)  To provide the applicant with other necessary services in accordance with requirements of a Chinese Embassy or Consulate-General.

In addition, applicants can obtain all kinds of visa information from leaflets and posters and enjoy visa consultation services through telephone, fax, and mail.
