The Chinese Embassy is closed 2nd and 3rd October 2017. We’ll still be open though.
What this means is that these days, Monday and Tuesday, 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 29th September (Friday) on the express service, the soonest we will get it back is Thursday 5th 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!
This means that if you need your passport back before Thursday 5th (and remember, that’s when WE get it back in the office), then we need to have your passport on or before Tuesday 26th September. Get your skates on!
