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.

Obtaining a visa for travel in China
Can a US citizen living in Thailand obtain a visa for travel in China from the Chinese Embassy in BANGKOK, or do I have to get the Chinese visa before leaving the US?

Answered by Joey | Sep. 09, 2020 20:40

Jeff, in normal cases, you can apply for a visa in Thailand, but at present, if you travel to China for sightseeing, I'm afraid you can't get the visa, no matter in Thainland or the US.

Chinese overstay

My wife is From China and we currently came to Pattaya.
10 days ago we came to the immigration office Chonbiru and they told us that for now Chinese citizens do not need to apply for an extended stay.
They said only overstay and there will be no fee.

Today we are back at Chonbiru to extend my stay as an American. We asked them about the Chinese stay and one worker told us at the airport when you leave there will be a fine....
but then another worker said No there will be no issue or pay.

We feel we don’t know who to believe now.
Please help us out

Jay, considering the current virus situation in China, I think your wife does not need to apply for an extended stay, and the immigration officer has told you so, so you don't have to worry about it too much.

You can call 0066-76-304180 to see if the consular office in Phuket can handle your HK visa application. If not, you can send the documents to HK Immigration Department by yourself. It normally takes about one month for visa arrival. The documents may include your passport, application form, photo, round-trip transportation arrangements, hotel bookings, and a financial standing proof.
