Answered by Nick from UNITED KINGDOM | Sep. 11, 2019 19:50

For work visa, the educational certificates and non-criminal record should be authenticated.
The procedures are as follows:

Before submitting a legal document to the Chinese Visa Application Service Center, an applicant must have the document notarized by a local Notary Public Office in India and attested by the CPV Division of the Ministry of External Affairs of India (Add: Patiala House, New Delhi), or the Branch Secretariat of the Ministry of External Affairs in Chennai, or the Branch Secretariat of the Ministry of External Affairs in Hyderabad.

After the above has been done, the document should be submitted to the Chinese Visa Application Service Center along with the following documents:
1. A duly-filled Application Form for Attestation. Signature or fingerprint of the applicant is required.
2. Original and photocopy of the legal documents (both sides for the signed and stamped page). If one document has 2 pages above, it should be stapled properly and sealed and stamped by the Notary Public Office or will be refused by the Embassy. (Applications will not be accepted if the contents of the documents are against Chinese laws.)
3. Signed Covering Letter with attestation purpose and the list of the attestation document from the applicant himself/herself if it is for civil use. (Example: Attestation for educational certificates, non-criminal record, etc.)
4. Original and photocopy of applicant’s passport or other legal ID.

If you stay in a hotel, the hotel will help you to register, so that you don't need to visit the police station.

how much is group visa fee for china
Answers (1)
Answered by Bonnie from USA | Aug. 07, 2019 01:14

Do you plan to join a tour group? I ask so because only those joining tour groups organized by travel agencies can apply for the group visa. As for the fee, you need to inquire at the embassy.
