Masi, the embasy will not open until the global pandemic situation is controlled. As your visa has already expired, you cannot extend it any more. Just wait and see if the Chinese embassy will do something for you later for remedy.

Thanks Eric for your response, wish you health and happiness.

You can have a try, but the result for granting visa or not is not assured. The process usually takes four working days. I advise you to apply for it in your home country if possible.

Thanks Jerry for response. I will try 😉👍

Well, something changed for Irani citizens, but I'm not sure whether it's the same for citizens from other countries. Nowadays, the documents for L, M, and F visa are more than before.
