Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Japan
Asked by Kamrul from JAPAN | Apr. 24, 2019 04:28Reply
I am a Bangladeshi national now studying in Japan. How can I get Chinese visa?
I am now doing my PhD in Japan. I want to attend one conference in Japan in the coming days. Where can I apply for Chinese visa ? Is it the CVAC or the embassy? I asked the visa application center about it by email and they replied that I have to apply from my own country.

Kamrul, even if you apply from the CVASC, they will transfer your application to the Chinese embassy, which has a final say on your visa approval. So I think you may have to apply from your own country.

I'm Turkish citizen living in Tokyo. How can I apply China tourist visa?
Visa Application Center in Tokyo didn't accept my application and said I need to apply through an agency. But agency says the opposite. I'm confused and need to know what route to follow to make my application.

You can apply from the CVASC in Tokyo after you prepare all right documents. Their official website has the information for the detailed information, and you can check it there
Answered by Hndunl from TURKEY | Apr. 17, 2019 23:36

I have done that already, I prepared my file as instructed by the website. As I kindly mentioned that at my email to you the CVAS officer told me that I can't apply there. Unfortunately, still the application route is not clear to me.
Answered by Kelly | Apr. 18, 2019 02:54

If the area where you reside belongs to the CVASV of Tokyo, you can make the application from there. Otherwise, you are supposed to make the application from the CVASC in your residence area.

Indonesian passport transit visa

I’m holding an Indonesian passport residing in Denmark. I’ll have flights from Tokyo to Amsterdam via Xiamen. The transit in Xiamen is only 3 hours. I heard that I’ll need transit visa in Xiamen airport. Where can I apply that in Tokyo while I’m traveling?

Thank you 🙏

Answered by Taylor from GERMANY | Apr. 15, 2019 23:14

You would be able to get 24h twov in Xiamen. No visa will be required in that case.
