VISA to China. NEW RULES??? PLEASE HELP
10th January, 2012
I just found out by calling the Chinese embassy in the country I am visiting (Spain) that if I want to apply for a chinese visa here I either have to be a citizen of Spain or a legal resident. They told me if you're not a citizen or legal resident of the country where you are applying for a visa they would not accept the application, at least these are the rules in Spain. They told me the only way to apply is to send my passport back to my home country or legal residency and have someone apply for me there.
I was checking online and they apply the same rule in the United States.
Does anyone know if this rule is applied at the Chinese consulate in Thailand?

This rule certainly hasn't applied to the Chinese embassy and consulates in Thailand in the past - I have got a couple of Chinese visas in Thailand, most recently in October when it wasn't a problem. It could be the case in some countries though - for example you can't get a Chinese visa at the embassy in Phnom Penh unless you are a Cambodian resident.
