You can try to apply from the China Embassy in Antigua & Barbuda. If it can be done, you don't need to go back to your country for that.

Jay, you can try to convert your current X type to a tourist L type at the exit and entry administration of the local PSB within China. If it can be done, you don't need to go to HK for that.
You should prepare your passport and its copy, the application form, a passport-style photo, valid registration form of temporary residence in China, return air tickets and hotel reservation. Then, submit the application to the local PSB.

You mean you want to apply for a business M type with multiple entries? If so, you need to find a supplier in PRC and then the supplier can get you the invitation letter. If you apply with the Antiguan passport in Antigua, the first thing is to prepare those document including your passport and copy of its data page, the application form, a passport-style photo, and an invitation letter from your business partner.

But if you are in Pakistan, you can only apply for it with Pakistani passport, aside from the above-mentioned documents, you also need to provide bank statement and an invitation letter of a duly authorized unit, and you can ask your supplier to get it for you; maybe the round trip air tickets and hotel booking record are needed, too.

Dear, you cannot apply for it online anyway. There is no such kind of service. If you want to apply for a tourist L type for sightseeing purpose, you can submit your application to the embassy of PRC in Kuwait. You need to provide those documents containing your passport and copy of its data page, the application form affixed with a passport-sized color photo, your residence permit in Kuwait, round trip air tickets and hotel booking record. If you work in Kuwait, you also need to provide the work permit and company covering letter.
However, it’s not likely for one to get an L type with multiple entries for a year.
