Individuals who had their fingerprints taken by the Chinese Embassy in the preceding five years while using the same passport, or those who were less than 14 or older than 70, were formerly excused from the requirement.-Indians won’t need to submit fingerprints
Until December 31, 2023, Indian nationals are now eligible for single-entry or double-entry visas for business (M), tourist (L), short-term family visits to Chinese residents (Q2), transit (G), and crew (C) reasons.
Indian citizens must pay between Rs 3800 and Rs 7,800 for Chinese visas, depending on the kind and length of the visa requested. Applicants can call or email the Chinese embassy in New Delhi with questions about visas at 9999 03673 or email@example.com.
Prior to Thursday’s statement, the regulation did not apply to anyone who were younger than 14 or older than 70, or to those who had their fingerprints taken by the Chinese Embassy officials during the previous five years and were using the same passport, or to those whose fingerprints were deemed “uncollectable.”
Following “positive” border negotiations just a few days prior, the Chinese embassy in India made the news on Thursday. At the Chushul-Moldo border meeting site on the Indian side of the LAC, the 19th round of negotiations between the Indian Army and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of China took place on August 13–14.
A week out from the BRICS conference, where Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi are expected to participate, the news regarding adjustments to visa regulations was made. Since the Galwan Valley conflict in May 2020, which resulted in at least 20 deaths of Indian forces and four deaths of Chinese soldiers, ties between India and China have remained tense.

The passport must have two or more blank visa pages.Additionally, a photocopy of the pertinent passport pages must be given.
