Examples of the tailor-made services from Visa Service Desk

  • The importance of a visa

    If you travel within the EU as a Dutch passport holder then you don’t need a visa.  Because of this, many travellers are not used to thinking about visas for travel.  If you are planning a temporary stay in China, then it is mandatory for you to get a Chinese visa.  The only time that you can enter China without a visa is if you are in transit to another country – in this case you can stay for a couple of days without a visa.  The exact number of days depends on which city in China you are passing through.  Because there are several specific rules to these regulations, we advise you to apply for a visa at all times before you leave so that you will not be faced with any surprises.  The requirements for getting your visa depend on your reason for travel.  If you travel for business, the requirements are quite different from those for a tourist visa.  You can find a clear overview of all requirements on our website.
