Visiting Cyprus - Can get China Visa
Hi there - I will be in Cyprus for 2.5 weeks visiting friends and wondered if I can process my China visa at the embassy while I am there? I am on a New Zealand passport and have previously been issued visas to visit China. Thank you in advance for clarification and hope that I am able to process while I am there.

It's hard for you to get a tourist visa not in your home country if you are not a long-term resident there. So you'd better apply one in New Zealand.

Thanks can I stay Shanghai 3 days and after I will go Thailand with? That I unterstand with free visa. How can I take.?
Answered by Gloria | Nov. 09, 2023 18:58

Yes, your understanding is proper. However, it requires you to have no other stops in China. You need to hold the onward ticket to Thailand on your hand. Upon arrival in Shanghai, get an temporary entry permit at the 144-hour visa-free transit counter in the airport.
