Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Japan
Asked by Flimpoke from JAPAN | May. 06, 2020 20:26Reply
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

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.

Recorded message in Chinese
Today, about one hour ago, I received a telephone call with a pre-recorded message in Chinese.
I know a little Chinese and could understand that it was from the Chinese embassy, but do not know what the message was. I am a US citizen with a Chinese visa that is valid until 2025 and was issued in Tokyo.
What could the message have been about?

James, I also read it from another post stating the same situation as you. I think it's a scam and you just need to ignore it.

You need to provide your passport, application form, passport size photo, ARC of Japan, and evidential documents for your trip to China, like round-trip documents and hotel bookings.

Hi Dave, I’m a New Zealander who applied for a X2 visa for Mainland China in Tokyo last August 2019 and I was able to get one for 180 days. Ive read online threads that you can’t and the person at the office did query me as to why I am applying for one in Japan as I was only a tourist. But, I received one so no harm if you aren’t in Australia to try and apply in Japan.

Multi-entry tourist visas
I have friends in China who I would like to visit a few times over the next year. Will I be able to apply for a single "12-month Multi-Entry" visa without planning all of the trips ahead of time?
