Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Netherlands
Asked by Frans van Diessen from CHINA | Jul. 13, 2021 21:35Reply
Best I have a question about the VOG Netherlands.

I am in China and my wife ( Chinese ) and I are working on a residents permit (Green card).
The VOG must be authorized by the Chinese embassy according to the authorities here, but I am not in the Netherlands.
I sent this to a friend, but my question is can he have this authorized by the embassy or do I have to provide more information?
Can he make appointment for that.

Hi, Melissa, it depends on what type of visa you want. At present, China does not issue tourist visas.
