Embassy in Manila: No email reply and not answering phone calls
Hi, please help. I’ve sent emails to the Chinese Embassy in Manila and I attached documents needed for work (Z) visa renewal but there is no reply. They don’t answer phone calls either. How can I request for visa renewal appointment then if they don’t reply to emails and phone calls? Thank you so much.

Jayson, you need to ask your employer to get a new work permit for you if it has been expired. The other documents you need for getting the new work visa are your passport, application form, recent passport size photo, and the expired residence permit of China.

Actually, I was wondering whether you can do the application in the Philippines as it is not your home country. Things are not clear for this winter.
