Going to The East Asia

On Monday morning (December 13, 2010), I went there, filled the form (if applicants haven’t got downloaded it then can ask from the officer at front desk), attached my pics (one piece, 4×6 cm), then I got my Chinese visa on Thursday morning (December 16, 2010). No interview, the officer didn’t ask me any documents (such as hotel booking or return tickets like normally required). Fee = IDR 540,000 to be paid cash at CVASC.
