The Embassy of China is closed in celebration of Chinese New Year!

Published on Wednesday, February 10, 2016

In celebration of Chinese New Year, the Embassy of the Republic of China in Ottawa will be closed from February 8th to 10th, 2016. Consular services, such as the legalization of Canadian documents, will be unavailable until they re-open.

Consular jurisdiction with the Peoples Republic of China in Canada is quite strict. The origin of your documents will determine whether your documents need to be authenticated by Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa or by the appropriate provincial body. Once your documents have been authenticated, you need to determine which embassy or consulate holds jurisdiction for the legalization portion of the process.

For embassy and consulate jurisdictions and locations, visit the website of the Embassy of the Peoples Republic of China in Canada.

You should be aware that the embassies and consulates of the Peoples Republic of China in Canada will not accept documents submitted by mail, even if they are sent directly from Global Affairs Canada. Any documents requiring legalization by the Peoples Republic of China in Canada must be submitted in person.
