Dear All, Good news, the limit of applications accepted has been removed (sort of). All urgent applications will be accepted. As for the non-urgent service – the only change here is that we will not accept applications of people who will travel after two months, technically all those applicants who are travelling before 21st of July should be accepted. Many thanks!

The Chinese Consulate does not recognise Dual Nationality. I.e. If you possess a UK passport: You can either apply with your UK passport or with your non UK passport. Your non UK passport will be treated as if you did not possess a UK passport, therefore UK resident permits or entry stamps, obtained within the last 6 months, are necessary when applying for a Chinese visa with your non UK passport. We offer a ‘Second UK Passport’ service, in case you do not have the above mentioned in your non UK passport and are using your current UK passport to travel whilst your Chinese visa is meant to be obtained. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
