Asked by Mr. Ron Driscoll(Andorra)
I am planning a trip for my wife and myself to China in October/November 2009. we will fly into HongKong on 22nd October. We then plan to travel by Rail from HK to Beijing, then from Beijing to Xi'an, then Xi'an to Shanghai and finally Shanghai to HK. Dates of train journeys cannot be confirmed as I understand I can only try and book a ticket 3 days in advance of each train journey. Therefore, I also cannot confirm hotel bookings. Is this going to be a problem when I try and apply for our Visas?
Answered by Mrs.Wang
Sometimes, that may be kind of obstacles to your application. I advise you contact the consular office where you plan to apply for it to get an exact answer for this and ask for some practical help if possible.
