The UK is set to extend its network of visa application centres in China from 12 to 15 in anticipation of record demand this year.
The new centres will be located in Changsha, Kunming and Xian and will start welcoming applicants from next month.
The three new centres will be ideally located to improve the service’s geographical presence and make it even more accessible to as many Chinese people as possible. They will offer many of the premium services available elsewhere, including the popular 3-5 day priority visa service.
The UK’s commitment to expand the network was announced by Prime Minister David Cameron during the State Visit of President Xi to the UK in October.
