Prepare your passport and its copy, a completed application form, and passport-style photos, residence permit, as well as other documents the consular officers consider necessary, and then submit the application to the embassy or the consulate where you resides. You can contact the embassy to inquire the details.

Rush Service. I plan to travel to China
and I was wondering whether the Rush Service is available for anybody that is willing to spend the extra 20 Euro fee. Or you have to have special circumstances? I will be flying to Cyprus on a Saturday night but then I have a flight out of Cyprus the following Friday (needing my passport back) and thus I will not have a week to obtain the visa. Thanks!

If so, you can try to apply for the rush service when you submit the application.
