The applicant himself or herself, except the holders of diplomatic or official passports, should come to the embassy for interview, in line with the appointment. He or she who fails the interview will be turned down; Submission of fake documents may result in restriction in entry in the future. However, to pass the interview does not necessarily mean that the applicant could finally get it.

He or she who is granted one should pay the fee with ATM card or debit card in the consular hall, and then pick up his or her passport. He or she who is not granted visa would get back the passport directly without paying any fee.

You can see whether they have flights to China before Feb 18 and take the flight to China. If you travel to China after Feb 18, you will need to apply for a new visa.
