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

I am an American residing in Austria. I am going on a study trip to China. Do i need to go to the Consulat in Vienna twice (once to drop of the application and once to pick it up)? Or is there another way for me to do this?

I think you can go to the CVASC in Austria. Or you can send the application by post.

If you apply from the CVASC in Austria, you can submit the application by post. You can find the application form from the official website of the CVASC. There is no family-friendly price, and you need pay 126 per person.

Austrian visiting Hongkong, Macao, Shenzhen and Zhuhai
I was planning to fly to Shenzhen then visit Hongkong and Macao after that i planned visit Zhuhai.
But there are three different visa-typs, one-time entry, two-time entry and multiple entry.
To be on the safe side i would prefer the multiple entry visa, but i'm not sure if there is any multiple entry one for Austrian tourists?.

There is any multiple entry visa for Austrian tourists. You can apply it from the CVASC in your country before the trip.
