Terms & Conditions

1. Our liability to you
The Company makes every effort to help customers to obtain Chinese visas valid for the destination, purpose, period of time and number of entries requested by the client. However, The Company is not responsible for any decision by the relevant authority not to issue the required visa, or to issue one different to that requested. Furthermore, it is the client’s express responsibility to ensure that the visa received matches their requirements. In the event that the visa does not match the client’s requirements, or the visa is refused, or the visa is delayed and should The Company have caused any of these situations through error or omission, then The Company’s liability is strictly limited to the cost of a replacement visa or refund of all fees paid and The Company cannot accept any responsibility for any other loss, damage, or consequential loss such as, but not limited to: lost profits, lost income, or lost airfares. Any such claims must be made within 90 days of the order being made.
The Company cannot be held responsible for any actions whatsoever by embassies/consulates/passport offices/visa centres. Such actions may include: unexpected and unexplained delays or refusals of visas, loss or damage to passports or other documents.
The Company keeps and maintains a database of information concerning the requirements and costs of obtaining different types of Chinese visas. This information is made available on this website in good faith and every effort is made to keep this information correct and up to date. However, The Company cannot accept responsibility or liability for any errors/and or omissions.
The Company cannot be held responsible for delays, damage or loss caused by any third party postal/courier company.
In cases where the client is refused a visa by the relevant consulate, the client is still liable to pay The Company’s fees and, where applicable, any fee levied by the consulate to consider the application.
