Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Japan
Asked by Harold | Sep. 18, 2020 01:55Reply
Need PU letter?
Do you need a PU letter to make a working visa?
How do you make an appointment online?
The schedule doesn't open.
Is it possible to get a working visa with the notification of work permit?

Answered by Fiona | Sep. 23, 2020 19:46

Harold, at the moment, a PU letter is required to make a working visa. You can make an appointment for visa application on the website of the CVASC. I think you need to provide a work permit, rather than the notification of work permit, to get a working visa.

Visa appointment
When going into the embassy for a visa appointment, do all family members need to be present or just one adult representing the family?
Answers (6)
Answered by Lesly | Sep. 20, 2020 20:01

Actually, you can make the appointment by email. Address: visaoffice.dcgmail.com
Answered by Andrea | Sep. 20, 2020 21:45

That's not really what I asked... I was asking if my husband can take the family's paperwork to the embassy, or do we all have to go to the embassy for the appointment?
Answered by Lesly | Sep. 21, 2020 01:58

Yes, he can.
Answered by Andrea | Sep. 21, 2020 04:04

Thanks, Lesly. One more question: Why does the e-mail address you provided for making an appointment by e-mail end with gmail.com? It seems suspicious and uncredible for something as official as an embassy appointment...
Answered by Lesly | Sep. 24, 2020 02:16

Actually I found this email address from the website of the embassy, so I think it can be trusted.
Answered by Andrea | Oct. 11, 2020 18:57

My husband is at the visa office in Tokyo and he is telling me that my application is being rejected because I am not present with him. This may cost us dearly.

Visa applications during border closures
Hi. Do you have any details of who to apply to for a visa for China from Japan right now? I've tried the embassy and visa center but no email addresses are working.

I'm a British citizen and resident of China with a very good reason to return to China.
Thanks in advance

Answered by Janet from USA | May. 10, 2020 20:35

Dear, do you have a diplomatic or official passport? If not, I'm afraid you can't get a visa for China and neither can you enter Chiona even if you have a very good reason to return there.
