Q: How and where can I get translated documents notarized?

I'm helping my Chinese friend prepare a visa application to Ireland and not quite sure how to go about the translated documents. I've personally translated his housing contract into English, but now I have to get it notarized? Where can I get this done in Beijing and how much does it cost? If anyone has any advice in general or experience helping Chinese with their visa app, any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Apparantly a number of consulates in Beijing offer these services. I've heard that the US consulate does but you should call and check first.

You could also try the Beijing Notary Public Office:
206 Jixiangli Chaowaidajie, Chaoyang District. Tel: 6553 8989; 6553 8988
Open: 8:30-11:30; 13:30-16:30

Some translation companies may also offer this service. Try China Translation and Publication Corp, 6F Wuhua Complex, A4 Chegongzhuang Dajie, Te: 6800 2558

These companies are really expensive though and you may be asked to pay 1000 kuai per page. You should double check to make sure that notarization is really necessary, as I'm sure some embassies don't require this.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
