Chinese Visa Online Application Form (COVA)

To start, you should fill out the new Chinese Visa Online Application (COVA form).  This new application form is filled out online and is 8-10 pages depending on the applicant’s situation. It will ask you for detailed information on family members, education background, and employment histories.  We advise all applicants to complete the form, but do not submit and generate the final printable PDF form.  This way, 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 , but we will do our best to catch any errors or flag any issues on the form.  


Processing time

The visa turnaround time is affected by many factors.  If your application is prepared correctly, we can have it processed within 3-10 working days.
