Introduction of the Chinese Visa Application Service Centre(CVASC)
2008/07/24

 To provide a better service for visa applicants, the Chinese Embassy has decided to outsource part of the administrative work of its visa processing to the Chinese Visa Application Service Centre (CVASC). Operated by VFS Global Services Pvt. Ltd., CVASC is a commercial entity completely independent from the Chinese Embassy, neither its visa office, nor part of it, nor its subordinate. The CVASC has no involvement in the visa assessment and decision- making process. Whether a visa is to be issued or not, and what type of visa to be issued as well as its period of validity, number of entry and duration of stay shall be decided by the Chinese Embassy in the light of China's relevant laws and regulations. The Chinese Embassy reserves the right to request applicants to provide supplementary documents or to come to the Embassy for an interview.

At the beginning, the Chinese Embassy will continue accepting some visa applications submitted by individual ordinary passport holders after the CVASC opens, but these applicants will have to log on the Embassy's Official website to make an on-line appointment before submitting. Applicants without the appointments will not be served. The visa categories include L(Tourism), F(Business), X(Study), Z(Employment), G(Transit), C(Crew), and D(Residence). This will last for a period of time till the date is announced by the Embassy through the due website when all ordinary passport holders shall submit their visa applications to the CVASC.

Holders of diplomatic, service (official) passports, or applicants qualified for the Chinese diplomatic, service, courtesy visas, or journalists and media employees applying for Chinese visa or applicants applying for Hong Kong SAR visa/entry permit or attestation can still submit their applications directly to the Embassy without making online appointments.

Travel agencies or other agents can still receive visa applications. However, all the applications received by them should be forwarded to the CVASC.

Applicants from Maharashtra and Karnataka may continue to apply at the Consulate General of China in Mumbai. Applicants from West Bengal, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Bihar may continue to apply at the Consulate General of China in Kolkata.

Basic information about the CVASC:

Address: Second Floor, Southern Park, D-2, Saket District Center, Behind IFFCO Sadan, New Delhi 110017

Tel: +91-11-4109 5601/4109 5602

Fax: +91-11-4109 5603

E-mail: delhicentre@visaforchina.org

Website: www.visaforchina.in

The CVASC will charge every applicant an additional amount of service fees other than the visa fees to be collected on behalf of the Embassy, regardless of approval or rejection of his or her application by the Embassy. The normal service fee is Rs.510 (inclusive of service tax) per passport. The next working day (express) service fee is Rs.660 (inclusive of service tax).

Applicants can contact the CVASC through the above-mentioned channels or go to the website of the CVASC: http://www.visaforchina.in for further details.

More information will be released on the official website of the Embassy: http://in.chinaembassy.org
