Past Visas on Visa application

I am filling out a visa application in the UK and I am unsure what to write down as my latest visa. I have one tourist visa issued in the UK, a couple of X2 visas issued in China, and a few residence permits issued in that order. Should I put my last residence permit or the last visa I was issued?

I believe this is the portion of the visa application you are referring to:

2.9 是否曾经获得过中国签证?如有,请说明最近一次获得中国签证的时间和地点。 Have you ever been granted a Chinese visa? If applicable,please specify the date and place of the last time you were granted the visa.

 

Technically, this only requires you indicate: 1. Yes/No, whether you have ever been issued a visa; and 2. the date/location of issuance of your most recent one.

 

When completing an application a couple of months ago, I added more than the minimum required, roughly as follows (dates/locations changed for privacy reasons):

2003, TOURIST (L-VISA) — 2012 THROUGH 2016, LONG TERM STUDENT ZHEJIANG UNIVERSITY (X-VISA + RESIDENCE PERMIT) — 2017, TOURIST (L-VISA) — ALL VISAS GRANTED IN WASHINGTON D.C.

 

There is a limited amount of space, or on the electronic application characters; so, how much/little you decide to add is purely a judgement call.
