Starting March 2015, Canadian citizens have access to a China 10-year visa. A 10-year visa is much more convenient than going to the embassy and applying for one each time you need to travel from Canada to China. There are Chinese Visa Application Service Centers in Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Montreal, and Ottawa, but you have to admit that it is a tedious thing to go there before every trip.
Lucky for you, companies like iVisa exist. If you do some research, you will see that third-party organizations can apply for someone else, in this case, iVisa for you. However, that does not mean you do not have to apply yourself. The only difference is that instead of applying at the Service Center, you apply online on iVisa’s website. That means you do not have to go anywhere, which has the potential of making your life a little bit easier.
What do you need to do?
The answer to that question is simple. Instead of wasting time on a trip to the embassy or the Chinese Visa Application Service Center in your area, you access iVisa’s website and make the request for a visa there. The steps are easy to follow, and the entire thing will last 20 minutes tops. Now, just because the process is online, that does not mean you do not need documents to go through with it. The most important aspect is making sure that your passport is valid and will remain that way the entire trip to China. As for the other documents, they are easy to get, so there is no cause for concern.
The application form itself is easy to comprehend. You will be told what to do every step of the way. If you feel confused about something, iVisa provides a 24/7 assistance service that is ready to take your call and help you at any moment. As for the information you need to put in your application, that is simple. You need to write your name, phone number, address, passport information, or any other personal information that iVisa deems necessary.
After the basic information, you will be asked to choose a processing time, which is the time in which your visa will arrive. Why is that important? Mainly for you, because you know the urgency of the issue. However, the processing time you select will also determine the price of your visa. Basically, the faster you want your application to be processed, the more you will be charged. You can choose between Standard processing time, Rush, and Super Rush. The price for the visa remains the same in all three cases. It is the service fee that differs. You must make the payment before submitting the application, and you can do that using a credit/debit card or even a Paypal account.
You have to admit that an online service such as iVisa can spare you a lot of trouble. You are no longer required to leave work and go to the embassy; all things considered, you do not need to spend much money, and the visa will arrive faster than if you go to the consulate or Service Center. iVisa has proven to be highly efficient, which is why thousands of people who have already used their services are more than satisfied with their experiences. There is no reason why you should not as well.
