 Answered by Ms. Lilian
Mr. emmatex, in principal, applicants whose spouse, children or parents reside in China can apply for multiple entry L visa. You may go back to your country to have a try with your marriage certificate and other basic requirements. However, the decision is subject to the visa officials anyway.

Hi, you can make the application from the embassy in Gabon.
Usually, it needs five working days to process the application, and you should pay XAF32,000.
There is no express service.
You need to prepare your passport and copy of its data page, the completed application form attached with a passport-style photo, an invitation letter of a duly authorized unit, round trip air tickets and hotel reservation.
