New visa application centres to open in Changsha, Kunming and Xian.
The UK is set to extend its network of visa application centres in China from 12 to 15 in anticipation of record demand this year.
The new centres will be located in Changsha, Kunming and Xian and will start welcoming applicants from next month.
The three new centres will be ideally located to improve the service’s geographical presence and make it even more accessible to as many Chinese people as possible. They will offer many of the premium services available elsewhere, including the popular 3-5 day priority visa service.
The UK’s commitment to expand the network was announced by Prime Minister David Cameron during the State Visit of President Xi to the UK in October.
The UK is also enlarging its existing visa application centres in Beijing and Guangzhou in preparation for the peak application period.
The launch dates and locations of each centre are:
10 June: Xian – Room 1103, Building A, Mole Collection Centers, Cross Road of Keji 6th Road and Fenghui South Road, High-tech Zone, Xian City, Shaanxi Province 710000 China
15 June: Kunming – 1502B, Building 5, Xindulongcheng, No. 1079 Beijing Road, Kunming City, Yunnan Province 650000 China
1 July: Changsha – No.1-3 Conference Room, 2/F, White Swan Hotel, No.258, Xiangfu Zhong Road, Tianxin District, Changsha City, Hunan Province 410000 China
Customers applying online will be able to book appointments at the new centres from the beginning of June. Further details will be provided in due course.
