Only Online Application for Chinese Visa Sierra Leone
The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Republic of Sierra Leone has formally launched the China Online Visa Application (COVA) system and the Appointment for Visa Application Submission (AVAS) system on 10th April, 2019. The COVA and AVAS will effectively facilitate the visa application, and an increasing number of applicants are taking this new application method. However, we noticed that some applicants were still unaware of the available online visa application. The Embassy wishes to inform once again that:
From now on, all the applicants applying for a visa for China (Mainland Only) in Sierra Leone are required to complete the online application form and make online appointment. THE HANDWRITTEN APPLICATION FORM WILL NO LONGER BE PROVIDED, NOR WILL IT BE ACCEPTED.
To access the guide to online visa application, please go to: https://www.fmprc.gov.cn/ce/cesl/eng/ywzn/lsyw/qz/t1090078.htm or the visa service page of the official website of the Chinese Embassy in Sierra Leone (www.fmprc.gov.cn/ce/cesl/eng).
Also, based on the online application forms we have received, some applicants tend to write their middle name or maiden name in the “Other names” column. For this, we suggest that applicants ignore the “Other names” and “Middle name” columns, and fill the “Family name” and “Given Name” columns with exactly the same names on the passport.
Applicants are advised to fill in online application form and make online appointment 7 days in advance. We look forward to providing high quality application service to every one of our applicants.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Republic of Sierra Leone
