Dear applicants,

Please be advised that the TLScontact Visa Application Centre will be closed on the 25th and the 26th of December due to holiday season. Please be mindful of the closure dates and how they may affect the processing time of your application. 


Delay of express notice

Dear applicants,

Please be advised that packages delivered to Beijing require a longer time to be processed because of the additional safety inspections currently conducted. This might increase the delivery time of your application files. While you can keep taking advantage of the convenience offered by EMS services, applicants are advised to choose the most appropriate visa submission method according to their personal situation and departure date.
