Chinese Visa in Khabarovsk (Russia)

Post by NomadXpress »

Hello,

Following our previous failed attempt in Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia) as described in this thread:

http://caravanistan.com/forum/viewtopic ... assy#p7651

We have also tried to get it at the Chinese Consulate in Khabarovsk (Russia). The outcome was:

- regular employee there advised that only Local Residents can apply for it, even though there might be a chance to directly inquire their manager (aka the consul we believe) for a waiver. Unfortunately, since the manager was not in the office that day and was bound to be back only 2 days after, we decided not to bring it further (we were on a limited transit visa in Russia and could not wait much longer).

- even if possible (to be approved by the manager), you have to go through a lot of hassle and paperwork:

1)Application form only in Russian or Chinese (not English version) with picture
2) Bank statement showing you are able to spend at least 100 dollars / day during your whole stay in China
3)Registration from your hotel in Khabarovsk
4) Immigration paper for Russia
5) Letter of invitation from a Chinese resident or an agency
6) Travel insurance for the duration of your trip in China

- They said that there was no need of flight / train bookings to / from China but they might be required, plus the reservation of hotels.

- It was nonetheless hard to communicate, as only a girl there could barely speak a few words of English.

That's it. We will now try in Japan. Follow caravanistan and our blog for further updates:
