I'm a French & British citizen, currently living in Beijing (no residence permit though). Considering 2 trips to Russia within a 90-day period, so applying for a business visa seems like a reasonable option.
A few questions for Those Who Know:
• Any idea of the normal consular fees for a business visa here? Both for a French and a British passport. (I've found that page ( Protected content ), but I'm not sure whether the prices quoted are also valid for biz visas)
• My current Chinese visa is on my UK passport. Would it be a problem if my Russian visa is on my French passport?
• The embassy's website clearly states that the consular fees will not be refunded in case my application is rejected. Given that should be a lot of money, does everyone confirm it's OK to apply here despite the fact that I don't have a residence permit?
