CVD is not part of the Chinese Embassy, and you can get your visa direct from the embassy cheaper on the slow service. However, CVD will minimise errors and common pitfalls and get you your visa in the shortest time possible. And we'll return it to you by courier or Royal Mail Special Delivery - included in the price! Downloading the application form is free (click here)



QiLinChinese Business Visas now come in several flavours:

Business Visas for commerce and trade - M Visas

Single entry;
Double entry;
Multi entry - 6/12/24 months.

Get this visa if you are going to do business in China, e.g. visiting a trading partner or a trade fair etc. The length of stay for each entry is usually 30 days. You can ask for more than 30 days, if needed and if supported by documentation. You will need at least two previous business visas before you can apply for a multi entry visa - based on our experience, UK passport holders have a better chance of getting a multi entry visa, certainly at the Chinese Embassy in London.

Business Visas for visiting a non trading entity - F Visas

Single entry;
Double entry;
Multi entry.

This visa is for when you are invited to China for an exchange, or a study tour by a non trading entity, like a public body, for example. The length of stay for each entry is usually 30 days. You can ask for more than 30 days, if needed and if supported by documentation.

Always bear in mind that the type of visa and length granted for each stay is always at the discretion of the Chinese Embassy, which will grant you the visa they deem is most appropriate as determined by all the circumstances (especially the documentation in hand).
