Do you retain our passport for the visa application?
I am a airline crew staff and is applying for L-Visa to Shanghai in July 2023. Do you keep my passport during the application? If yes, how can I get it back within 1 or 2 working days? I need my passport for work.
Please advise. Thank you very much.

As I know, they will keep the passport during the application. You may apply for a rush service whose processing time is usually 2 working days.
