The Chinese Embassy is already applying the new rules to tourist visa seekers by demanding airline tickest and hotel bookings. And it is causing a massive line-up at the embassy.
This morning, Monday, the line was 2.5 hours long inside the embassy, and promises to get worse as the week goes on.
Under these circumstances fast service visas may become difficult to acquire for the next week.
Not since the Beijing olympics have we seen this sort of backlog.
Lesson: apply EARLY !
