1. Applicants are advised to apply for a visa about one month before their intended date of entry into China, and not to apply more than three months prior to their journey. Applicants should take upon themselves any consequences resulting from their failure to submit visa application at an appropriate time, which may lead to either their already-issued visa becoming expired or it being too late to get a visa before their planned departure date.
2. Whether coming to the Embassy in person or consigning visa application to others, the applicants must sign on the application form (except the minors younger than 16 years old). Any information correction by the consignee is supposed to be confirmed by the applicant.
3. Once submitted, the visa application cannot be corrected or cancelled. No visa application documents will be returned, the applicants should make copies themselves in advance if necessary.
4. It is the consular Officers who make the final decision on whether a visa is to be issued or not, what type of visa to be issued, the visa's validity period , duration of stay and number of entry according to China's laws and regulations. The informed date of visa collection is only applied to the general. Consular Officers may request an applicant to provide additional supporting documents or have an interview when needed. Therefore, the visa collection date may be postponed as well. The applicants should not take it for granted that their applications are surely to be approved. The Embassy is not responsible for any related economic losses if your visa application is rejected.
