To apply for a China tourist visa, UK residents need to complete the online application form and schedule an appointment on the Chinese Visa Application Service Centre (CVASC) website. This appointment will enable you to submit your application in person and have your fingerprints collected. Please note that this biometric data collection is mandatory.
