Hi TAI, do you need us to arrange the transportation to and from Zhuhai?Whitney Liao Replied on 2013-04-15
Hi Angela, it is a convenient visa for visitors from Macau or Hongkong entering into the Pearl River Delta. Usually it takes 1-2 working days to complete it. To apply for it, we need the scanned copy of your passports. But right now, I am afraid that we are not able to offer a hand for this situation.Whitney Liao Replied on 2013-01-31
