Asked by Bleze moleke from ANGOLA | Apr. 19, 2015 09:09Reply
My name Moleke, i visited Chinese consulate in Angola to apply for my first time visa to china.
A sua Excia. Senhor ambassador,
i had invitation letter from one of the chines company, we have to attend a business meeting on this month of April. before my move, i did get all the info in your website, getting there its otherwise. i submitted two passports with the same process, because both we have to attend the invitation, one was accepted and other one rejected. my question is 1) do you read the submitted process of individual or not? 2) Do you have information center, so that people can interact with you in order to know what's missing to his process so that its can be fixed?

I've been to some embassy, when you come with your process their always be info center to interact, to let you know what to rectify.

frankly speak, i had a difficult time there, no where to get information. i went back home with my confusion. i do not know what wrong with my process and i have to find out my self to fix it. on Tuesday i'm going back again.

Best regards,

Bleze, first this isn't the official website of Chinese embassy in Angola. According to my knowledge, it is the consular officers who decide whether to approve or reject people's applications. To some extent, it's subjective. That's why some people who provided all required documents but finally got rejected. However, they still reserve the right to make a decision. Even when you fail, you won't be informed why your application was turned down.

What's more, those who were rejected are suggested to reapply after three months.

Mr.Manuel Alfredo, I also hear the news that Chinese government lifted a two-decade-old travel ban on foreigners with HIV/AIDS on April 19. I think that you can return to China for study, you can first contact the Guangxi University to enquire it.
