1. Mistakes in the visa application form
When applying for a visa, the application form is the most important document because it is the basis for the consular officer to decide whether to grant you a visa. Inaccurate information such as spelling mistakes, incorrect passport numbers or invalid addresses can cause your visa to be rejected.
2. Apply for the wrong visa category
Well, this is one of the most common mistakes people make when filling out visa application forms. It is very important to select the appropriate visa category in the application form and submit the appropriate documents. Different visa categories have different requirements. Read carefully and understand clearly the scope of application of each visa, and then fill in the visa category. Submit appropriate documents by category.
3. The submitted photos do not meet the specifications
Improper size, background color, texture of the photo paper, etc. will cause the photo to be unqualified.
4. Missing application documents
Before submitting your application, please carefully check the latest application requirements for your visa type and collect all the required documents. If any of these documents are missing, your application may be rejected.

5. From a sensitive country
Applicants from countries where wars, terrorist attacks, political turmoil frequently occur, or countries whose nationality often overruns their visas, or countries with strained relations with China will increase the probability of visa rejection.
6. The applicant has a criminal record
Having a criminal record does not mean that all applications will be rejected. However, if the applicant commits a very serious crime, the possibility of refusal will greatly increase. A misdemeanor usually has no effect, especially when you are only applying for a tourist visa.
7. Poor past visa records
The applicant has overstayed his visa or was blacklisted in any country.
8. Applicant is in poor health
The applicant has some kind of infectious disease. In most cases, short-term visa applications such as tourist visas and business visas are not a big deal. However, for work visas or student visas, this may be a problem, even though Chinese law does not clearly stipulate it.
9. Engaging in sensitive occupations
Applicants working in religious or military industries may have a higher rate of visa refusal because these industries are considered sensitive by the Chinese government.
10. Insufficient capital reserves
Another reason for rejection is that the applicant does not meet the financial requirements, that is, you need to have enough funds to pay for your travel expenses, living expenses and accompanying family members during your stay in China.
In addition to the above reasons, there are various reasons for the unsuccessful visa application. The most important thing is to prove that you will abide by Chinese laws and be able to bear the costs of your planned trip to China. If you prove this through the documents and information you provide, your visa is likely to be approved.
