Visa question for Work Authorization and Admittance into China for US citizens living in Croatia
Hello. My family is planning a move to China this summer. My husband has already been working remotely for a Chinese company for almost a year. We are US citizens living in Croatia since last summer. We are here legally as our residence papers are in process, but yet to have final approval. I know we need to have the consulates back home authenticate our documents, but may we do our final interviews to be allowed entrance into China from the Zagreb consulate?

It is suggested to apply for your visa just in USA after your documents are authenticated as the Zagreb consulate may not accept your application.

Applying for Chinese Tourist Visa (L) in Croatia when you are a Canadian Citizen
Hi, I will be traveling to Croatia for 2 weeks for work. Due to time constraints, I would like to apply for an expedited chinese tourist visa in Zagreb. However, I am a Canadian citizen with a Canadian passport. Can I still apply for a visa there?

Thanks for your feedback. However, I’m confused about this requirement “5. The citizens of other countries in Croatia should offer the Croatian Resident Permit.”

I’m in Croatia for a business trip, but I don’t have any specific permit to verify this.

If your travel plan meet the requirements of 144-hour visa-free transit, you won't need a visa. If not, you can apply for a tourist visa at China Visa Application Service Center in Toronto.

Brazilian in Croatia.
Good afternoon,
The chinese tourist visa (L) for Brazilian citizens is valid for up to 5 years. It also allows multiple entries into the country for stays of up to 90 days each. I can still extend my trip for another 90 days (totaling 180), every 12 months from the date of first entry.
I still have all this benefits when I apply for VISA in at the Chinese Embassy in Croatia?

Answered by Elinor from USA | Jul. 30, 2019 18:26

Dear, you may mean that every 6 months from the date of the first entry. Plus, it is possible for you to enjoy all the benefits.
