Assistance with the Chinese Visa

Your tour price includes ALL consular and visa processing fees (standard processing)

Note – urgent visa applications are subject to a surcharge

Once you book a tour with us, pay your deposit and provide your passport details, we order an official tourist invitation from China. We also email you the guidance notes on how to complete the Chinese visa application form. You will then need to fill in the required forms yourself which is quite straightforward. Our dedicated visa specialists will be happy to provide assistance should you have any questions or difficulties in completing the form.
 

BIOMETRIC DATA - APPLICATIONS MADE IN THE UK

Note regarding applications made in the UK: from 01 December 2018 all applicants aged between 14 and 70 years (inclusive) need to visit the Chinese visa centre in London, Manchester or Edinburgh in person to provide fingerprints (based on reciprocal arrangements between the UK and China). Again, there’s no need to worry – we will guide you through the whole process.
 

UK, USA, GERMANY, FRANCE, SPAIN RESIDENTS

Your Chinese visa is included in the price of our Trans-Mongolian tours and we can process Chinese visas in the UK, USA, Germany, France and Spain, meaning you do not need to pay any extra visa fees unless your application is urgent. All urgent visa applications are subject to additional costs which will be reconfirmed to you at the time you submit your documents.

You can post your complete application pack to our office. We will check the paperwork on your behalf and submit it to the Chinese consulate. Once the visa is issued, we post your passport back to you. Note: normally if you book a Trans-Mongolian tour with us, we process your Chinese, Russian and Mongolian visas at the same time, so you do not need to post us your documents several times.
 

RESIDENT IN A DIFFERENT COUNTRY

If you live outside the countries listed above we will provide all required paperwork for you enabling you to apply for your visa at the Chinese consulate in your country of residence. As part of our fair dealing policy, we will of course deduct the consular fee (standard processing fee) from your invoice as you will have to pay for your visa at your local Chinese consulate.

We will email the official Chinese invitation to you. You then need to apply to the nearest Chinese consulate yourself where you need to pay the correct visa fee. You will then need to collect your passport from the consulate or arrange to have it returned to you by post.  Feedback from previous clients means we can reassure you that these procedures run smoothly if you follow our advice. As usual, our visa team is always ready to help.
