How to Apply China Visa in Malaysia

When we, Malaysians travel to China for holiday, we do need a tourist L-VISA. The office is on 2nd Floor, Plaza OSK and located opposite Menara MCA, Citibank and near KLCC, Corus Hotel and Ampang Park. Since there are many direct flights to many cities in China from Kuala Lumpur such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guilin, Nanning, Kunming, Cheng Du, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, it is easier for Malaysians to visit China. For those who wants to apply China Visa on their own, you can read on.

When I applied, it didn’t take me a long time. It is advised to apply online first (for faster application process) and apply the visa in the office. Download the form at http://www.visaforchina.org/KUL_EN/visainstruction/251836.shtml

Just go up to level two with all your documents ready and take a number. What do you need to prepare?
