Country notes

China - People's Republic of China consulate in Dubai (PR of China)

China = People's Republic of China (PROC), and includes Hong Kong and Macau, but HK and Macau have different visa regulations. HK and Macau visa applications are not done at the Chinese consulate in Dubai. Apply directly to Hong Kong or Macau immigration departments but most nationalities are eligible for visa on arrival or visa-free entry to HK and Macau.

Taiwan = Republic of China (ROC), and visas for Taiwan are not applied for at the Chinese Embassy, but from Taiwan Commercial Office in Dubai, or eVisa online.

20 Nov 2016 update (contact information valid from 06 Jan 2005)

Previous information (news references from WAM)


Previous location

Chinese visa applications (as of 20 Nov 2016) - reference for Chinese visas from Abu Dhabi Embassy website.

Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan have separate and different visa rules from mainland China, and also have their own border and immigration controls. Having a visa for mainland China does not automatically allow you to enter Hong Kong, and vice versa (same for Macau and Taiwan). Apply for HK and Macau visas but not Taiwan at Chinese Consulate, apply for Taiwan visas at Taiwan Trade Office in Dubai, or eVisa online.

The island of Hainan has more relaxed visa requirements than mainland China but still falls under the jurisdiction of mainland China immigration. There are other visa-free entry possibilities to various cities, zones, and regions, for example the Pearl River Delta for tour groups originating in Hong Kong and Macau, 24 hr transit visa, several cities with 72 or 144 hour airport issued transit visas, Special Economic Zone (SEZ) visa on arrival (VOA). Check carefully with an official source (don't assume Wikipedia is 100% accurate e.g. it omits Philippines from nationality list ineligible for SEZ visa on arrival) which rules apply to which nationalities and be aware that they can change unexpectedly. Remember a transit visa is not possible if you fly from China directly back to your origin country (e.g. HKG > PEK > HKG no transit visa, HKG > PEK > DXB can use transit visa if PEK > DXB flight does not stop in HKG, HKG > PEK > PVG > DXB no transit visa because PVG still in China).
