Chinese Visa Online Application Form (COVA).

To start, you should fill out the new Chinese Visa Online Application Form (COVA). This new application form is filled out online and is 8-10 pages depending on the applicant’s situation.  The new form will ask applicants for detailed information on family members, education background starting from high school, and employment histories. Therefore, we advise the applicant to complete the form, but do not submit and generate the final printable PDF form.  Although we cannot fill out the form for you, but we can review and help you to check over the form by using the Application I.D and passport number before the information gets submitted.  We cannot guarantee the form to be error free or 100% be accepted by the Embassy, but we will do our best to catch any errors or flag any issues on the form. Once the form is submitted online, the Embassy will ask the applicant to complete the form again if any edit or corrections on the form is needed. The Embassy does not accept any handwritten corrections on the generated PDF form.
