I was wondering what kind of visa do you want to apply? If it's for tourism purpose, you need to submit your passport, application form, recent photo, temporary residence permit of Belarus, and roundtrip tickets and hotel bookings to the Chinese embassy.

For your HK trip, you don't need a visa actually if the stay is not more than 14 days, but keep in mind that you need to make a pre-arrival registration at the HK Immigration website.

For tourist purpose, the round-trip air ticket and hotel bookings are required. Basic requirements should be her original passport and a copy of bio-data page, application form, and photo.

Answered by Stella from USA | Aug. 15, 2013 03:51

As I know, invitation letter from a travel agency can be replaced by flight ticket and hotel bookings. If your friend will stay in your place, I think it is necessary for you to send her an invitation letter.

Hi, because you are not married yet, you can not invite her. But if she will work there, the best way is to find a position first, then apply for a work Z directly.
