British visitors visa for China

Can anyone kindly outline the procedure for obtaining a visitors visa for a short trip to China.
So far I have conflicting advice. One advisor is saying its OK to abtain a visa from the PRC Consulate in Zurich and another is saying it must be done in London. I tried calling the PRC Consualte in ZH but cant raise anyone there who speaks English.
Please advise me. FK

Re: British visitors visa for China

Berne or Zurich makes no difference, Chf 80 for 1 entry + Chf 50 for express service. No posting, in Berne you have to physicaly go, or send somebody and same for pick up. I got one last week, got to consulate at 09.00hrs 09.55 i was walking down the street with a Chinese visa (i took express service) If you go later than about 10.0hrs express can take upto a day.

If you have a Western European passport, incl Suisse you do not need to show a return airticket if you have a busineses invitation letter.
