2. Visit https://avas.cs.mfa.gov.cn (Appointment for Visa Application Submission, AVAS) to choose a time slot.

3. Submit the signed application form, confirmation page and other required documents (please see How to make a visa application) at the Consular Section of the Embassy (118 Merrion Road, Dublin 4, please do not post) according to the time slot.

4. From 10 April to 9 May 2019, applicants can continue to use the existing physical paper application form (no appointment is needed in this case).
