Article how to legalize documents in the Embassy of China It's not a secret for anybody that China is a very popular country for Ukrainians. The full-fledged and legal migration to the PRC takes place not without the participation of the Chinese Embassy in Ukraine, because China has not signed the Hague Convention (excluding Hong Kong and Macao), therefore, all documents pass the procedure of consular legalization.

In summer, the Chinese Embassy in Ukraine is "glorified" by its queues for documents submission for obtaining a visa or the consular legalization. So we decided to share our experience of documents submission in this Embassy in the hottest period of the documents legalization - the period of obtaining certificates and diplomas by our former school-leavers and students.

This article will be interesting for the people, who want to deal alone with the documents legalization for China. If you are not such - for you, too, something useful will be found;)

How to submit documents in the Embassy of China?

We do not want to give you false hopes, because working in this field for over 10 years, we are constantly facing with the "huge" queues and difficulties on the way to the cherished "window".

Example of the consular legalization for China

Mark about passage of the consular legalization in the Embassy of China

As you have already guessed, there are 2 variants for passing a certain procedure in the embassy - independent, and with the help of the company, representing your interests, like our Company - Jur Klee. All details on the procedure of documents legalization for China are given on a separate page with documents samples, possible prices and terms, and now we will talk about the independent submission.

Step 1: Define yourselves with the urgency

A man is inclined to do everything at the last moment, and such an important event as migration, or rather the preparation for it, is not the exception. We are talking about a visa registration or the consular legalization for China.

Before you decide to independently register documents for China you need to define yourselves with the deadlines. If you are a responsible person and in advance thought over legal points – you can independently pass to the practice, to be interested in the procedure and the possible deadlines, the necessary package of documents. If the deadlines are quite limited - this is the first signal to reflect on the transfer of such a responsible task to the specialists.

Step 2: See in the calendar

If the need for the legalization or a visa obtainment fell down at the first half of the summer – stand firm, the queue before Embassy doors will not make you happy.

The most convenient time for the documents legalization for China or a visa obtainment to this country - it is the winter period after the New Year. During this time you will not have to drop from the very morning and wait for the cherished 9:00 – the reception beginning. Otherwise, go to bed early, because tomorrow you will have to "look through the dreams" under the Embassy doors...

Calculate the costs for traveling in the Embassy

The Embassy of China in Ukraine, unfortunately, is only one and it is in Kiev, therefore, if you live outside the capital – it is worth to calculate the cost of travel, meals, accommodation and other expenses, which you will incur.

We constantly observe the situation when after the documents receiving to the acceptance window run people, who furiously begin to explain that they had come from another city, for today are bought the tickets on the train, plane, they have nowhere to live, and so on. Of course, the employees of the embassy will not greet you with a smile, and will not say, "of course, give your documents, we will do everything in the best possible way." This situation happens constantly, of course it is a pity to look at these people, and we want to offer our services, which, to the point, will be much cheaper than a trip to the capital. For example, we calculated the approximate costs of a trip in Kiev (for 2015). We indicated the minimal amounts, so to speak the "economy variant". The cost of our services for the trip in the embassy is only 200 UAH. You can find out the full price on the page about the documents legalization for China.

The long-awaited trip to the Embassy of China

If you are tired of hearing the general concepts - move on to the specifics!

In one of the days of July we dropped in the Embassy for documents submission for the consular legalization since 05:30 (a.m.!). If you are surprised - it's not all, because having come so early, we have been the 17th in the queue. The reception in the Embassy begins at 9:00 a.m., therefore, we had to sit under the doors of more than 3 hours, and hope that the queue would come to us. Yes, we were lucky, we have submitted the documents, and our clients remained satisfied of our work, but the reception ended on us, that is, totally per a day the embassy accepted 17 people. Accordingly, all who come after us (after 5:30) will return home with their documents and will try the luck tomorrow.

The quietest day in the Embassy of China (Kiev)

We hope this story will be useful for you, and you will come dropping in time. It's worth noting that we have submitted documents for legalization, the visa direction is more competitive, so if you need a visa to China – it will not be superfluous to come much earlier.
