About:China Visa on Arrival


Last week I used my last entry on the China visa and now I have to go back immediately again. I am a Finnish citizen and currently in Vietnam on a business trip. I have already learned by reading these posts that at Guangzhou airport VOA is not possible.

Can I get a VOA at Guangzhou East Train Station when arriving from HKG with high speed train? Or alternatively can I take a ferry from Hkg airport directly to China (which port?) and get a VOA that allows me to travel to GuangZhou and DongGuan for 4 days? I have several previously used Chinese visas in my passport.

If the answer is yes, what are the business hours in the VOA office? Are they open on Sundays too? Or do I have to narrow my arrival time to weekdays 9am - 5pm?

You can't get VOA at Guangzhou East Train Station or port of Guangzhou. Please apply for a China visa from China embassy in Hanoi or China Consulate in Ho Chi Mihn City, if you don't have time to apply it in Vietnam, you can obtain the visa in Hong Kong and apply for rush service.
