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.

Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Thailand
Asked by Chhorng sreyleak from CAMBODIA | May. 24, 2019 00:56Reply
Hi I’m Cambodia passport and I holiday in Bangkok .can i need visa to Hong Kong in Thailand?
Asked by Mark Verne from USA | May. 13, 2019 20:50Reply
How can an American citizen living in Thailand obtain a chinese visa while abroad?
I live in Thailand while still maintaining my U.S. citizenship. I am getting married this month to a Thai citizen, so I will have Thai residency + US citizenship. I am accepting an ESL job in China.

For my Chinese employment, I need:
1. FBI check with fingerprints etc.
2. Diploma checked for authenticity
3. TEFL certificate checked for authenticity
4. ??? I think that is it as far as I know right now

I do not want to travel to the US to complete the FBI check, document authorizations etc. necessary for my future Chinese job. I have found that I can do all of these things in China, but can I also complete these tasks in Thailand? Bangkok? Chiang Mai? Does Thailand have the same connections with US agencies in order to complete these necessary tasks for a Chinese visa?

Thank you,
Mark Verne

Hi I am a Singapore passport holder currently on a holiday in Thailand, can I apply for a Chinese visa here?

Answered by Cherry from USA | May. 12, 2019 17:38

Yes, you can. Singapore citizens can enjoy visa-free if they stay in China for no more than 15 days, so check whether you still need to apply for a visa.
Answered by Rain from SINGAPORE | May. 13, 2019 03:34

Would like to travel for more than 15 days. If I apply in Bangkok, how long would it take to be processed?

Does a Thai need to apply for tourist visa if only transit in Shenzhen to go to Hong Kong
Do I need to apply for a tourist visa if I fly into Shenzhen then leave within 2 days to go to Hong Kong?

Answered by Lee from UNITED KINGDOM | May. 07, 2019 20:16

Well, two days is too long to use the 24-hour TWOV. So you need to apply for a transit visa.
