All travelers who plan to visit China, with the exception of Hong Kong, are required to obtain a China visa. The processing time for visas generally take within 3-10 working days depending on the option you choose.
A single entry visa and double entry visa is normally valid for 3 months from the date of issue. A multiple entry visa is usually valid for 6 and 12 months. The applicant may apply one or two months in advance, or one or two weeks before the trip to avoid visa expiration. After the applicant enters China, if his/her actual length of stay is longer than the visa given, he/she must apply for extension of stay at the local public security bureau before his/her visa expires. The applicant will be fined or subjected to other penalties if he/she stay beyond the specified date.
"Tourist Visa - L Visa" is the most popular type of China visa. It is issued to those who visit China for tourist purposes, family visit or other personal matters.
If you want to apply "Business Visa" or "Work / Employment Visa",
please provide original invitation letter issued by China local government.
