Applying in Manchester, UK

  • You must be available to visit the Manchester visa centre within 4 weeks of departure – to submit the application and your fingerprints.
  • You will need to research your flights before submitting an application for the visa. The visa application form requires you to submit the flight numbers of the flights you intend to take to and from China. However, it is best not to book your flights until you have actually received your visa.
  • You will need to book your own visa appointment, inform us of your appointment time and give your visa collection receipt to an Pagoda Projects staff member. We will then be able to collect your passport once the visa has been issued and post it back to you.
  • The cost of travelling to and from the visa centre in Manchester will not be covered by Pagoda Projects.
  • The visa application fee for British nationals is £151. (N.B. This fee may vary for non-British nationals).
  • If you miss the visa appointment, your application will need to be restarted and you have to book yourself a new appointment at a later date. So please make sure you turn up on time!
