• Visa to China

    A smooth visa to China application process requires a clear understanding of the step-by-step lodging procedure as well as the necessary set of the documents. Using our 20 years’ experience, we ensure that all your forms are in the right order and completed in accordance with the standards of The Chinese Embassy. This minimises the possibility of visa rejection.

    We advise you to apply for a visa approximately 1 month in advance, but not earlier than 3 months. Usually, a visa is issued for a period of 3 months. However, for some types of Chinese visa, its validity can be 1 month or less; in this case, it would be advisable to apply 2 weeks prior to your trip.

    We offer assistance with the application process for the following categories of visa to China:
