New 2011 Chinese Embassy Visa Application Form 2011 China V 2011B Visa Application Form.pdf Dowload
I just moved out to China a few weeks ago and I thought as my first post I would do something to help all those out there who are thinking about visiting China and need to apply for a visa. The Chinese visa application process has changed a lot since their latest update in 2007. You can not use the Q2007 form anymore, in fact the guards check to make sure you have the right form at the door and won’t even let you into the embassy if you are using an older China Visa application form.

A few tips for filling out the new China V2011B Visa Application Form
1) Make Copies! Make 2 copies of your passport (you can make copies at the embassy but they only take coins, and there’s usually a long line. Save yourself time and make 2 copies prior to visiting). They should only ask for one copy and you should keep the extra copy for yourself for safekeeping (give it to a friend who isn’t travelling with you).
2) Best time to drop off your visa application (New York Embassy): The good thing about the new form is that the line is a lot shorter now that most people are turned away at the door with the older form, however as more people figure this out, you’ll start seeing the huge line soon. Most people go on a Monday and pickup on Thursday. I like going on Friday dropping off, and then picking up on Weds. Either way, if you are dropping off your application, you should expect to arrive around 8:45AM in order to get a good place in line.
Hope this helps you with your Chinese visa application! Next post will definitely be food related as I am beginning to try out lots of new and local restaurants here in Beijing.
