It's not impossible to get a Chinese visa in Hong Kong, however the rules and requirements can change like the weather. Unless you are a HK resident, don't count on it.setell wrote: ↑Dec 10th, 2012 3:55 pmHave never had to provide birth certificate. I just have to write my chicken scratch chinese name for them to look me up in the system.
I thought you couldn't get a visa in HK anymore? I got it in HK a few years ago since it was easier and faster but then the last time I went in 2010 I couldn't so I got it in TO which was like a zoo there and took forever. Is it faster now?
EDIT:...guess they do want travel information before issuing a visa. Why would I want to stay in China
I believe there are still visas obtainable at the border from Hong Kong for visiting the Shenzhen area only.
