 Asked by Mr. CHRISTIAN
I am Nigerian citizen, residencing here, I would like to take short visit to China base on varification and tie up business trade proposal, What are my requirment?

 Answered by Mr. Leo
A tourist visa is required for your entry into China. Since you are a foreign passport holder, besides the basic documents (valid passport, application form, photo), you should also hold a valid Austrian visa or resident permit. Other materials such as flight tickets, confirmation of hotel reserve and your bank statement of last 3 months may also be required.

  Asked by Mr. Puhl
Hi, I would like to do a 3 month internship in Hong Kong. I do not need a visa for visits and business for 3 month. But does that include internships? Or do I need an extra visa? Thank you for your Time.

 Answered by Mr. Nicholas 
You are free of visa to Hk for 90 days not 3 months.
I'm not sure whether that include intership, you can confirm this with the Immigration Department by enquiry hotline at (852) 2824 6111 or by fax at (852) 2877 7711

Thank you, Helen, to obtain visa in my own country is technically very complicated, even impossible for me.
