Chinese Visa Application Service Center (CVASC)

From September 29th, 2015, the Center is responsible for receiving applications of ordinary passport holders for visiting mainland China. Postal service for applications is currently not available. Online appointment is not mandatory but strongly recommended.

Applicants holding Diplomatic, Service or Official passport, or who apply for Hong Kong/Macao visa/entry permit, should still submit the application directly to the Embassy.

Meanwhile, the CVASC office in Thailand provides document authentication service at a certain cost. Foreigners in need of this service should go to the CVASC instead of the embassy while Chinese applicants are still required to apply for the authentication service from the embassy.

Applying Z visa from Thailand

I'm from the Netherlands. I currently live in China. But my current residence permit is expiring soon.
Is it currently, despite the current situation, still possible to go from China to Thailand to apply for another Z-visa?

Jef, I'm afraid not. If you need to continue your work, please renew your residence permit at the local exit and entry administration.
