Travel Permit
Hi, i need to get my child a travel permit, how long is the turn around time for this and is there a rush service?

Answered by Holly | Sep. 05, 2023 00:01

Do you mean a China visa? It usually takes 4 working days after all documents are submitted. The rush service takes 2-3 working days.
Answered by Mathew | Sep. 05, 2023 04:06

No, so china requires my son to obtain a travel permit not a visa for entry and exit from the country.
Answered by James | Sep. 05, 2023 18:46

Hi, Mathew, a travel permit generally requires the same time with a visa, 4 working days.

China Visa
Good Afternoon,

I am inquiring for someone who is an Australian Citizen currently residing in the United States and wants to go to China later next week. They would need a visa but how would I obtain that since they are currently not in Australia? Is there a way to expedite it online? Thanks in advance for your help!

If they are in US, then they need to apply from China embassy or consulate in US, by showing their residence permit in US. In principle, all applicants should be in the country where they submit the application.
