About:Chinese Embasy in Ireland

Resident in Ireland - Non-Irish (Polish Passport) - applying in person

I am living and working in Ireland, however I have Polish passport. I will apply for a Chinese visa in Embassy in Dublin, therefore I need to fill in the 'Supplementary Visa Application form' (form v.2011B). One of the questions on this form is to provide a number of residence permit and expiration date. As a Polish citizen, I do not need a residence permit to stay in Ireland. Will it be enough if I tick option 'None' and explain in the form that I am not required to have a residence permit?

I am going to China with my wife. Do we both have to bring our applications in person or can I drop mine and hers on her behalf? If so, do I need to present any written authorisation from her to do so?
Thanks for your help.

Yes, it is ok for you to tick option None with explaination. Don't worry, visa officers know that you are not required residence permit or visa to work/live in Ireland. You can apply for both of your visas to China if your wife does not want to visit the office in person. Personal appearance is needed only when visa officers ask for. Authorisation is not needed.
