Find Your Cruise
Hopefully this is not further confusion but the cost here appears to be around £90 but it might be the sight you are using ... http://www.5starchinesevisa.co.uk/?gclid=CLP36veli5gCFQxHQwod8Rx9eg.
Many thanks for your answer. I've downloaded the form and will use this visa company as they are the cheapest at £105 for a double entry visa. Thanks again.
We went to china in Nov 08. We got our visa from the Chinese consulate in Manchester....It wasnt anything like £105 for double entry. It does involve two trips though..one to apply...and another some days later to collect (they will not post). I seem to remember it was about £45 pp, worth taking on the trip to Manchester.
Thanks for your reply, you're right it's well worth a couple of trips to Manchester. I've just been on the website and got the address and telephone number so I will give them a ring during their visa enqiries time slot of 14.00 to 16.00. That's really good advice as I hate trusting our passports to Royal Mail. I did try to find the information but I was googling the embassy instead of the consulate. Thanks again.
Hi again, just thought I'd add another comment following your advice about the consulate in Manchester. We drove over this morning and it was excellent, no queues, easy to find, plenty parking spaces - we were there and back in under two hours and have saved ourselves approximately £120 plus. If I knew you I'd send a bottle of wine! Thanks again, your advice was just in time as the envelopes for 5starchinese visa service were written and the applications wereabout to be posted today. Did you enjoy China by the way? Were you on a cruise?
