Chinese visa service agency in Canada for Canadians and AmericansIn Canada, it may still be possible to apply for Chinese visa directly with the Chinese embassy in Ottawa and the consulates in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal. However, it has become increasingly difficult to do so because they want all applicants to go through their appointed sole agent called Chinese Visa Application Service Centre.

This change means higher cost for the applicant and probably has resulted in improved customer experience. Nevertheless, for many applicants navigating the whole process remains daunting. In fact, it is not uncommon for some applicants to have to take two or three trips just to get their application accepted. The requirements change often and some of them make little sense. For example, the visa form has to be completed on a computer, not by hand.

Canadian applicants who live outside the aforementioned urban centres or whose time is too precious can now enlist our service to obtain their Chinese visa. Our Chinese visa service is also available to Americans whether they live in the United States or Canada. Please go to our Chinese Visa Info page for full details.
