FAQs about Visa to China

1. Who can apply at the Visa Centre?

You can request the application yourself or give consent to a third party (e.g., friends) to do so.

(1) The Visa Centre accepts visa applications from Singaporean citizens or citizens of other countries staying in Singapore with appropriate legal status. However, note that we cannot accept the application if you are not physically in Singapore when your application is being submitted.

If you are not currently in the country in which this centre is located, please apply from where you normally reside, or apply after you return to the country. Application coverage is ONLY available to travellers lawfully residing in the country in which this Visa Centre is located.

(2)The Chinese Embassy and Consulates-General have their own jurisdictional areas formally known as consular districts. Only those who reside within a particular consular district of the Chinese Embassy in Singapore can carry on application through this Visa Centre. Please click here to visit sites about the service areas of this Visa Centre.

2. How far in advance should I submit my application?

You should make your application well in advance of the planned travel date. Please note that you are advised to apply ONE month in advance but no earlier than THREE months.

Visa processing time varies with location. Please click here to monitor the applicants’ processing time of this Visa Centre. However, you should be aware that actual processing time for visa to be approved may be longer than that posted on the web site in certain circumstances. If there is such a delay, you will be notified by the Visa Centre consular officer.

3. Is an appointment required to submit the application?

To ensure a smooth operation and smooth out the flow of applicants over the working day, you need to make an appointment well in advance for submitting a visa application. Based on experience, please note that the submission peak hours are between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., so please try to avoid this period if possible. The Visa Centre allots a certain number of appointments in each 30-minute timeslot. Upon arrival, either show a printout of the appointment information or e-mail or simply mention your name, and you will then be given a queue number on a first-come-first- served basis. This should guarantee a wait of only a few minutes. Visiting the Centre without an appointment is NOT allowed.

4. What should I do after arriving at the Visa Centre?

On the day of your visit to the Centre, please be punctual. Upon arrival, you will:

  • Obtain a queue number for your application submission; please wait for your number to be called

  • Submit your application at the counter designated for handling the particular queue number

  • Receive a pick-up form, which is a receipt showing the information of your application and expected date for collection

  • Please CHECK all the particulars on the pick-up form; should you have any questions about the information printed on it, please contact the consular officer and our staff immediately. Always carefully retain the pick-up form as it must be shown when collecting your passport

5. Can I track the status of my application?

The Chinese Visa Application Service Centre provides a 24-hour online facility website to track the status of your application. 

6. Is the service fee the same for a child?

Yes. The visa processing procedure is the same for a child, who is an independent applicant or an accompanying applicant sharing the same passport with the principal applicant. Therefore, the child incurs the same amount of service fee.

7. Does a child need to fill out a visa application form as well?

As an independent applicant, the child applicant needs to fill out a separate visa application form. However, if the child shares the same passport with a principal applicant, this is not required.

8. Can I extend the duration of stay of my visa in China?

You may ask for an extension of the “duration of stay” of your visa at a local public security authority before it expires. Please do not assume that the application will be automatically given the consent. Please note that overstay violates the laws of Chinese government and foreign affairs and will be punished.
