I assume that you are in Malaysia, in which case as you haven a local student visa you apply through the visa issuing office there: in some countries this will be the Embassy or Consulates, in some it is outsourced to a separate business group:n either way check on the internet tho it might only be in the local languages.

For any limitations being applied to Iranians generally, check the Iranian Chinese visa agency website.

I hope this helps and I hope any other group members with knowledge will also reply.

Good luck.

I don't know about the 6 months for a student visa, but I am not surprised. You must also have 6 months remaining in your passport and at least 2 free pages. Otherwise just go to the embassy and see what they say. If you have questions after that, please post again. If you are successful please also post so we can keep abreast of the situation.

Good luck

I agreeit's strange, but people are being denied visas in some countries where they have no residency or long term visa. While in others it is not a problem (eg in the UK) tho you cannot get such a long visa. I do not know what the logic is behind this.

I suggest that you go to the embassy and apply. If you do not meet the core requirements, you are not charged a fee. With China, outcomes are never sure, so give it a go!!

Good luck if you try :)

Thanks Enkid for providing info

I think though, that this is not a new rule but one that has been there some time and is applied to certain nationalities or to individuals they feel it appropriate to apply it to.

I think Iran nationals will have this rule applied to them routinely and that's why you came across it while others haven't.

However, China does make changes from time to time and I might find it now applies to Australians as well!!

I'll be applying for a visa soon and will report back....anyone else got a visa recently?

Heya

Thanks for letting us know know yr experiences.

I think you have found out how the Chinese system works: sometimes strict, sometimes not, but there is no way of knowing which it will be. So you do the best you can with providing information, then TRY! They hate to tell you in advance, so it's the only way.

Yes, there are different prices for different countries: the US prices are high because the prices are high for Chinese wanting to visit the US.
