That sucks, sorry man. Unfortunately, it's impossible to visit Iran independently as a Canadian. Ugh. I think I'll have to go to a Consulate in Asia.

Two Dutch citizens trying to apply for Chinese visa in Tbilisi. Our application was rejected straight away, as we did not have a Georgian residence permit. All other documents were in place (copies, full itinerary, flight tickets, hotel bookings etc). Stating that we are living for several months in Georgia and that as EU citizens residence permits are not needed did not persuade the Consulate. We either needed a residence permit or proof of employment by a Georgian company. Guess that they have tightened up the rules again after a period where they were not asking for the permit.

As for the queueing, we got there at 6:30 and were the first. In total only 10 people showed up, so it was quite calm (but that could be just this day).

Hope for better luck in Teheran.

As of June 2019, Chinese visa can only be obtained at the consulate in Tbilisi if you are a resident of Georgia or if you are working in Georgia. Thus I was informed on June 24, 2019. Even having an invitation letter from a Chinese National did do nothing to get around this new rules.

Today we collected two Chinese visas from the Chinese embassy in Tbilisi, *without* residents permits or proof of employment.
We are two foreign nationals, one with a EU and one with a CIS passport. We were asked questions about residency/proof of employment as per previous posts in this thread. We didn’t have either but pointed out a Tbilisi residential address and Georgian mobile number on our forms, and mentioned we’d been living in Tbilisi for a number of months. Double entry visa issued 2x30 days.
Maybe we got lucky 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♂️
We were also required to show: booked flights, full itinerary (which we were asked about), hotel booking for arrival, bank statement. We didn’t have an LOI.

Polish and English were not eligible to apply because we did not have a residence permit

German tried today to get a Visa for China. No chance without residence permit. I even said that I'm a freelancer - then I need a certificate by a Georgian company I'm working for, the woman replied.

Swiss couple, no chance beginning of September. We would have needed a residence permit.
