 Asked by Mr. humphrey 
I’m based in Hong Kong. I would want to know about the new passports. Pls can anybody help me with the information? I am trying to get it but I can not

 Answered by Mrs. Ceile 
I find that there is no consulate-general in Hong Kong. Maybe you have to renew your passport in your home country, since you will have to apply for a visa if you renew your passport at your Embassy in Beijing or Zambia’s oversea commissions in other countries or regions near to Hong Kong.

  Asked by Ms. Odei 
I had admission to read mbbs at a Chinese university before, but I failed to go after I got the visa due to some inconvenience. And now I have gotten another school. I want to know if I have to re-apply or renew my old X for the new school?

 Answered by Mr. Elliott
Yeah, you have to apply for a new visa with the documents provided by your new school in China.

Amp, you can't extend a China visa outside China. If your trip is postponed, you should apply for a new visa.

Natasha, you do not need an invitation letter, but you need an original and photocopy of the Adimission Letter issued by a school in China.

As I know, if you can submit the round trip air tickets, hotel reservation, you don't have to provide invitation letter for the application.
