You can either apply for a business or tourist visa to go back to China, but not now, because the border has been closed.

can I apply on paper?

I am Greek citizen residing in Greece and I plan to travel in China on the beginning of April. Is application only made online now, or I can just print the pdf form, fill it, and take it along with the rest of the documents to the visa centre in Athens?

Thank you in advance

If you can arrange your trip well, like Ireland - Beijing - a third country (but not Ireland), you may use the 144h visa-free transit in Beijing, so visa is not required. Otherwise, you need to apply for a visa in advance.
