Hi Everybody,

I'm a newby on this forum ! Hope I'll find my answers.

I'd like to know if, as a foreigner in Malaysia, I can apply for a Chinese Tourist visa. I'm actually in China and have to go out before the end of the month. I know I can renew my visa in HK but already went there several times.

I'd like to visit KL and some nice Islands. It could be a good opportunity if I could do both: Visa and tourism.

Any clues for me ?

Cheers.

It should be the case. I was in KL and I was waiting till the 19th, end of paraolympics.

People can get in Laos, so I'm sure you can get one in KL. If the new policies imposed during the Olympics season are history?

Oh so you are telling me that it's 100% sure that it's possible to get on in Laos ? In Vientiane I suppose.

A Singaporean old man told me.

Welcome to Travellerspoint, Dav! :)

Yes, you can apply for a Chinese Visa in Kuala Lumpur. The Consular Services of the Chinese Embassy is located at the Bank of China tower located next to the Ampang Park shopping centre, which is about a 5-minute walk from the Petronas Twin Towers. If you're taking the LRT (underground), get down at the Ampang Park station.

I would double check the situation for applying for visas in Laos and KL. My friend (British citizen) recently tried to apply for her Chinese visa in KL and was told that she had to apply in her home country. So she ended up having to FedEx her passport back to the uk, get her boyfriend to take it to the consulate in Manchester and FedEx it back to her once the visa was issued.

On their webpage, they listed the visa fees for non-Malaysians so I assume that it's possible. I read somewhere on another thread that before the Olympics, they temporarily stopped accepting visa applications from non-locals in all their visa processing centres worldwide. Did she apply during that time?

The Malaysian news reported last week that the temporary additional rules for Chinese visa have "been relaxed" since 8 September. But I agree with you, it's better to check with them first.

Opospa is in the Malaysian travel industry. Perhaps he knows about it. He's been missing in action for a while though.

It's possible she applied during that time so perhaps that was the problem.

I got my Chinese visa in Auckland (during the Olympic period) even though I'm a British Citizen, but perhaps it's because I'm living here at the moment and have NZ residency.

I just joined the very long list of foreigners who went to the Chinese embassy in Bangkok, only to find out from a flirtateous girl and the security guards that I NEED TO GET IT FROM MY OWN COUNTRY... Unless i have a work permit, the AIRFARE TICKETS, and the hotel reservations...

FANTASTIC! can the UN send IT specialist from India to teach some people how to UPLOAD INFORMATION AND UPDATES about VISA POLICIES....

A SINGAPOREAN IN LAOS, said the embassy showed him a letter stating that by SEPT 19, things get back to the ussual and that this Singaporean citizen can travel by land to KUNMING and beyond.

SO MAYBE LAOS is the answer. BUT how can I VERIFY this wirthout crossing the border?
