If you go to China for sightseeing purpose, you need to prepare all the required documents including passport and its copy, a completed application form attached with passport-style photo, travel itinerary, round trip air tickets and hotel reservation as well as others. It usually takes four working days for the processing. You may need to pay CUC30 per person for that.
