Visa application from Trondheim
Hello, I am a German citizen living in Trondheim and want to go to China for a week long vacation in the summer. I see it says the mail service has ceased but I do not want to fly to Oslo to submit my visa application if I do not have to. Is it possible to submit and collect it another way? Thank you.

Kat, you can submit the application in person but you can use the post-return service so that you only need to go to the visa center in Oslo once.

Appointment for Visa Application Submission (AVAS)
hi, I'm trying to get an appointment in EMBASSY OF P.R.CHINA IN NORWAY. But the nearest available date is 1 of January (today is 29 of august).
how can I get time for applying at least in one month?

Answered by Wendy from NORWAY | Aug. 30, 2019 00:14

If you book an appointment, you cannot choose the nearby dates as they are fully booked. Therefore, I advise you to call the embassy to see whether they will allow you to submit the application without making an appointment.

Thy, you are required to have visa to Hong Kong. Plus, you can't apply online. You can apply at Chinese Embassy in Norway, or submit the application to Hong Kong Immigration by mail.
