You need to submit his application to the CVASC in Canada or the Chinese embassy in Iceland. You don't need to use the payment authorization form because it's only used when you apply by post, but unfortunately, postal applications are not accepted at present.

Usually, the stay duration of a tourist L type is 30 days, but someone may get 60 days. The consular officers will give her a proper duration based on the actual days she needs.

You both need to apply for a visa in advance according to your purpose of visit. For your husband, he is required to provide the original and a copy of his permanent residence or work permit if he works in Iceland. Otherwise, he needs to apply in Philippines.
