About:China Embassy in Argentina

Canadians, Americans, Mexicans and Europeans applying for Z visa in Buenos Aires

We are a Canadian company performing around the world with artists of several different nationalities. We occasionally need to apply for work Zs while on tour.
Our touring team is made up of Europeans, Americans, Mexicans and Canadians and we will be performing in Buenos Aires in early September and we would urgently need answers to the following:

We have an upcoming tour in China, following our passage in Argentina and we would like to apply for a Z type for China while we are in Buenos Aires. Is that possible?
Is it also possible for just one representative of the group to bring all applications and related documents to the Embassy or must each individuals bring his/her application in person?
We would be able to leave our passport for 5 business days to process it. Would that be sufficient? Can you confirm that express processing (1 to 3 days) is still available?
A speedy reply would be very greatly appreciated.

It is possible to have a try, but you need to have an approval document for commercial performances issued by the Chinese government authorities for cultural affairs or an invitation letter from Duly Authorized Entity. With it and proof of your legal status in Argentina. You can send one representative to apply for you all. The normal processing days are 4 work days and you are in an urgent, you can apply for a express or rush day service. If your requirements get approved, you may get yours in around 1 to 3 days.

Thank you for your answer. Can you tell me what is the method of payment? Is it a money order? If so, where must they be purchased?
Thank you again for your help.
