Learn Chinese in China

Chinese Embassy In Hong Kong Took My Visa Documents. Is This A Good Sign?


Recommended Posts

I  am American who has been hired to teach English in China. I am in Hong Kong and applied for my work visa this morning at the embassy in wanchai. I had all the documents stamped by the federal bureau, etc. The lady who took my paperwork said having a new passport (2017) was ok. But I am still unsure.


Do you think my visa will be approved?

I don't think anyone here can tell you that, only the relevant authorities can. Accepting your paperwork is a necessary first step in getting your visa, so in that sense it's a good sign: the first step has been taken succesfully. Did they tell you when to pick up the visa? That's when you'll know for sure.


Good luck!

What documents did you need for the HK visa application? 


If you don’t mind my asking...


I’ve got friends who might need to go. It would be very useful to have fresh info.
