    You are lucky that you “got a slip to pick it up a week later” on your first visit. I heard stories where people made a mistake on the form and they’ve been told to come back again with the new form. It’s difficult if you don’t live near the office. Also the form is getting bigger and longer with so many unnecessary questions.

      I agree Tara! Yes, the Vancouver Consulate is very efficient. So much so, that if you didn’t come up with your number in 20-30 seconds, they moved to the next number and you had to take another one.

      I have heard that if you don’t live near a Consulate, you have to pay someone (or a service) to look after it for you on your behalf. I can only imagine what a headache that would be.

      I thankfully had the person who was going on the trip with me, had a residence in China, listed as a reference on my application. This probably made things easier as well.

      Are you going to China?! Details 🙂
