Visa for Brazilians abroad
Hello! I have a passport from Brazil but now I am working and living in Nuremberg - Germany. I have intention to travel in 3 weeks from Frankfurt to China in order to attend some business meetings during 4 or 5 days and come back. I need a "M" visa to do that, correct? I need to collect all documents requested and go directly in the CVASC in Munich to get the Visa? How to proceed by the right way?

Departure in less than 4 weeks
Hi. I plan to attend a scientific conference in Beijing, together with sightseeing. The intended trip is only for 4 to 5 days in total. Assuming I am flying out on 3rd or 4th September, is there still enough time to submit my application for further processing? I currently live in Berlin (for 12 months), hold a Malaysian passport and am also an Australian resident. Thank you.
