Fortune Cookie says: "Old Chinese form is no good - use the new longer Chinese visa application form for best results!"
The Embassy of China in Ottawa has introduced a whole new and better visa application form, and a totally new supplemental application form for ALL applicants.
Starting now you must use the new forms (a total of six pages in Chinese and English), and all answers must be typed on the form on-screen, then printed and all pages signed in black ink.
The new form is far better in that the questions are clearer, and the space allotted for answers is larger and easier to use. Most of the longer form is taken up with the questions from the old form, but with better spacing for ease of reading and answering.
The downside is that it has gone from 2 pages to six pages. So start typing now for your visa to China.
