“We have been trying hard to improve our service and make it more comfortable for visa applicants while waiting for their interviews or to submit applications.

“We are happy to announce that China visa application centre will open on September  20, 2017. We hope that with the opening of the centre, we will improve our services for applicants from all walks of life.

“The centre would be located at Churchgate Plaza, Central Business District, Abuja.

“The centre is entrusted to receive visa applications on behalf of the embassy and we have a duty to oversee their operation,” he said.
