Application fees

TLScontact collects three types of application fees:

+ Visa fees, which are collected on behalf of the consular authority for the application processing.

+ Application Service fees, which correspond to the standard application processing service provided by TLScontact.

+ Added Value Service fees, which correspond to optional added Value Services you have used during application process.

Attention: Payment of the above fees does not guarantee that a visa will be granted. The visa fee and the service fee are both non-refundable and non-transferable after the application is transferred to the consular authority, visa application is denied by the administration or the applicant decides to terminate his or her application.

Visa fees

The visa fee is mandatory for all visa applications unless you are within the exemption categories.

*The visa fee is only collectible in RMB, and may change as a result of currency fluctuation. The Visa  fee is fixed in euros but payable only in RMB. The exchange rate between these currencies is decided by the Consular Authority and is updated periodically, therefore the RMB amount you are requested to pay may differ from those quoted above. Please note that your Visa fee receipt will only quote the fee paid in euros.

Application service fees

The service fee, mandatory for all visa applications (unless you benefit of an exemption), is 95 RMB. This corresponds to the standard application processing service provided by TLScontact (i.e. Information provision, appointments booking, visa application reception, data processing, etc.).
