I'm a Canadian citizen who will be an exchange student in Hong Kong this fall, studying on a Hong Kong student visa. On the website of the Commissioner of China's Foreign Ministry in the Hong Kong SAR, it states the following:
"Visa applicants are increasing in a large number and need longer waiting time in the visa office recently. If you don't reside or work in Hong Kong permanently, you are required to apply Chinese visa from the Embassy or Consulate-General of Peoples' Republic of China in your resident country. You are welcome to China for tourism, business and visit." (Address/Office hours/Enquiry service)
Does anyone know if as a student on a Hong Kong student visa, I can still apply for a Chinese visa when I'm in Hong Kong, or if I have to apply for a Chinese visa while I'm still in Canada?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
