Mika, which passport do you plan to use? If it's the British passport, you need to fill in the application form online for visa on the website of the China Visa Center in the UK. You need to prepare your passport, print out of your visa application form, and a work permit, which should be obtained through your employer in China.

Is there an online tourist application form?
From what I understand there is no online application form for getting a tourist visa. I f I am correct do we use the old traditional application form with the passport photos clipped on it? What other documents are needed apart from air return ticket and hotel booking? And then come and submit it or do we have to make an online application?

Dear, you should fill in the application form online, print it out and make an appointment. Bring the required documents including valid passport, application form and recent photo, round trip air tickets and hotel reservation and then submit to Chinese Embassy in Cyprus at the appointment time.
