application for Chinese visa in Perth

I am holding an italian passport and after a trip to Australia I have plans to go to China. Perth is the only big city where I can apply for chinese visa. Do you know if I can do that, not being an australian citizen or resident? How long does it usually take to get a tourist visa?

I don't know the logistics of applying for a visa on an Italian passport sorry, however I do know that the Chinese Consulate here in Perth process visa applications. I'm pretty sure it takes around 5 working days, however you can pay exta to have your application processed faster.

Also (on past experience) they require supporting documentation - eg. hotel booking confirmation, flight arrival/depature info and these dates should match exactly to the dates on your visa application form.

On the lead up and during the Olympic Games they were very thorough with everything, it may have relaxed a bit since then.

There is an Italian Consulate in West Perth (not open every day) but they may be able to assist you further.
