Hi All,

 

I applied for china visa and it got refused. They gave me the attached document. When i asked why they told me the reason is written. I said i dont speak Mandarin and was told thats not their problem.

 

Can someone translate and tell me why i was refused?

It says 不受理 which simply means they’ve not accepted it for processing outright.

 

I’m no visa expert but it seems kind of lazy to write “rejected” under “Other:______” and then tell you you need to figure it out yourself.

Have you been to China before?

 

Or do you work in a media-related company?

 

Were you born outside the U.K? Are you ethnic Chinese? (If not, it's odd they refused to translate the notice.)

 

Were you applying for just a standard tourist visa, or a student visa, etc?

 

Lots of ways an application can go off the tracks, but some more background would be helpful.

 

(By the way, to my ear 不受理 doesn't sound like they formally rejected your application, but simply refused to accept it. The distinction is important: if your application has been formally rejected, then you need to disclose that on any future visa application.)

Yes, 不受理 is “not accepted for processing”. I was flippant in calling this “rejected” in my comment re: clerk laziness.

Perhaps you should take the document to a visa centre/embassy or similar and get someone skilled in procuring visas for China, they may be able to tell where you went wrong.
