As of November 2018 the FCO have made changes to the China visa application progress.
This change means all persons (aged between 14-70) wanting to obtain a visa for travel in China will have to book an appointment at a visa application centre. The nearest centre for Jersey residents is in London. Visa applicants are now also required to provide biometric data (scanned fingerprints) as part of the process to obtain the visa.
HOWEVER, please note that these changes will not affect parties travelling with ThinkChinese on one of our China trips. This is because we apply for group visas which are not subject to the conditions of the new regulations; meaning our customers can travel with the same ease as last year.
