Procedure change for visa application

On 4 October 2018 the Chinese Visa Application Service Center in Copenhagen changed their procedure for requesting a visa for China. The center now has to capture applicants’ fingerprints on behalf of Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Denmark in accordance with Chinese laws and regulations.

This means that you will have to show up in person at the center in Copenhagen in order to get the application process underway.
