Chinese Visa Application Service Centre (CVASC) started its operation on 30th of November, 2009. Thereafter, the Consulate General stopped to accept applications from ordinary passport holders. The vast majority of applicants are kindly requested to go to CVASC. CVASC also collects visa fees and returns processed applications on behalf of the Consulate General. A service fee will be charged.
Applicants who hold Diplomatic, Service or Official passport, or who apply for Hong Kong visa/entry permit, or who apply for Chinese passport/travel document, or who apply for authentication/notarization should still submit the application directly to the Consulate General and don't have to make online appointment.

Can I lodge my application at your Chinese Consul General for a Tourism Visa?
If yes, do I need to make an appointment or can I just turn up?
You can either make an appointment or just turn up.
I would like to get off in each Chinese port.
Do I qualify for either the 72 or 144 hour TWOV or do I need to get a Tourist visa?

Also for the rush service if submitted before noon when will the visa be ready, the next day or the same day?
Thank you in advance.
If you use the rush service and submit before 12 o'clock noon, you can get the visa on the next day.
Can i present the required information in the Sydney consulate to obtain a tourist visa, but get the visa sent by mail? Because i don't live in Sydney, but i will go there soon just for 2 days.
Is it mandatory to be present at the CVASC (SYDNEY)? Or the required documentation can be sent by mail?
Also, since I don't live in Sydney, how do I apply to get an appointment ?
