China Requires Previous Passport

Applicants MUST provide their previous (cancelled) passport in order to apply for a Chinese visa of any type. Applicants without a previous passport must now wait up to 30 days for a visa. This became fully effective as of 12 September 2017.

We are hoping that the very extreme rules will be relaxed after the 19 Party Congress held in late October in Beijing.
