USA citizen applying for a tourist visa in Lisbon Portugal
I am a resident of the USA. I will be in Lisbon for a vacation, and I am planning to process a Chinese tourist visa there instead of using a visa agency in the USA. Is this possible in Lisbon's Chinese Embassy/Consulate right now?

Well, you can have a try but generally the rejection rate would be high if applying in a third country.

Louis, you should keep close attention on the website of the China visa application center in Lisbon. Once it reopens, there should be notice on the net.

UK Citizen, living in Portugal

I'm going to China early next year and need a visa - can I come to the Lisbon office rather than flying back to the uk?

Do I need to make an appointment?

Answered by Frank from PORTUGAL | Nov. 17, 2019 19:20

Yes, you can go to the CVASC in Lisbon to apply. You need to make an appointment on the website of the CVASC. You can enter the "quick entrance" on the homepage and click "online appointment" to schedule the appointment.
