The Chinese Embassy is closed 1st – 5th October 2015. We’ll still be open though. What this means is that the intervening working days (Thursday, Friday and Monday) will not count as processing days for the purposes of calculating how long your Chinese visa will take. So, if we submit your passport on 30th September (Wednesday) on the express service, the soonest we will get it back is Wednesday 7th October.
Furthermore, sometimes after the holidays, there are restrictions on what can be submitted. Please therefore allow extra time. Get your visa application to us now!
