First Chinese Visa Application Service Centre in the Netherlands

On April 22, the first Chinese Visa Application Service Centre opened in the Netherlands.

Chinese Visa Centres have been successful in other countries and thus, next to London, Paris, Brussels and Madrid, the Netherlands now has its own (Rijswijkseweg, The Hague).

The centre was introduced by the Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands due to the growing demand for Chinese visas.

Chinese Visa Application Service Centres (CVASC) provide services such as receiving visa applications for ordinary passport holders who want to visit mainland China, collecting visa fees, returning processed visa applications as well as providing information about travelling to China.
