All documents issued by the Cameroonian local authorities and intended to produce their effects on Chinese territory must be legalized by the Cameroonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs before being legalized by the Chinese Embassy.

As for making an appointment, it is suggested to contact the embassy directly because there is no related information about it on its official website.

I guess that is the issue, how to contact the Cameroon Embassy in China. They don't answer email or even the phone. So can you just go and hope someone is there? We've contacted Foreign Affairs in Yaounde and they assure us the embassy is open, but a lot of my information seems to indicate they aren't. Has anyone actually successfully contacted them recently, and if so how?

Hello, its Alfred from Cameroon and appointment for visa submission platform isn't opening.
I have been trying to book an appointment to submit my application at the embassy for the past ten days to no avail. My business trip is planned for beginning July and I am worried about if the platform will open early enough if at all it opens (keeps telling me number of people registering is 0) . Please if it opens and I booking dates are too far like 2 days to the date I put when filling the visa application form, does it pose an issue? Thanks.

In fact, it keeps open. If the number of available reservations is 0, it means the reservation is full. A normal visa application takes at least 5 working days, and I'm not sure if you can have a enough time. Anyway, it is suggested to call the local embassy for more information:

You can issue a letter of authorization and entrust an agency to handle it for you in China. Prepare scanned copies of the first page of your passport, all visa pages, first entry stamp page, and the last exit stamp page, the temporary accommodation registration form during your stay in China, your work permit or student ID card.

The agency should go to the Exit and Entry Administration Center of Changsha Public Security Bureau to apply for the Police Clearance Certificate for you, and then go to the local notary office to notarize the certificate, for you to use it in your country.
