 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

Yes, you need a transit visa.
Answered by jozef.sarina from SLOVAKIA | Jul. 02, 2019 03:47

Hm, and what about this rule?:
"24-hour visa-free transit in China, also called the 24-hour transit without visa (24-hour TWOV for short), regulates that visa is not required for air, train, and ship passengers transiting in mainland China for a stay of no more than 24 hours before heading for a third country or region"
"Besides, in Urumqi Diwopu International Airport, most travelers only enjoy visa-free transit for a maximum of 2 hours and are not allowed to get out of the airport." So?
Answered by Rita from USA | Jul. 02, 2019 18:37

Dear, it is fine for your transit in Urumqi. Just calculate your entire time by counting the hours from your first scheduled arrival in China until your last scheduled departure from China. Just do that and you will know whether you will travel visa free or you will have to obtain a visa in advance.

Hi, your both ways are actually eligible for 24h visa exemption transit in Beijing, so you don't need any visa.
