You cannot wear a hat or obscure your face in any manner for the visa photo to be accepted. Keep in mind that there is no recognition of dual nationality. This means that if a Chinese national has settled in another country and has acquired the nationality of another nation, they will automatically lose their Chinese nationality. So, a non-Chinese national is not eligible when applying for a Chinese passport or similar travel documents.

China is an ancient country filled with many attractions both historic and natural which manages to draw in millions of tourists and visitors every year. China’s passport and visa requirements have changed in recent years due to the growing concern over security. Today, China does comply with new biometric standards, yet they also have strict requirements over the photos used which means that there have been plenty of rejections.
