Foreign students in China want to visit Portugal
Hi. My boyfriend and I would like to travel to Lisbon next summer for a 10 day festival. We're South African, residing and studying in China. What type of visa should we apply for, as obviously we cannot get an invitation letter. Tourist Or cultural? Also, what about bank statements etc? Thanks

Hi, maybe you can apply for tourist visa for that, and you need to prepare your passport and its copy, the residence permit in China, the application form, 2 passport-style photos, studying certificate, round trip air tickets, hotel reservation as well as other documents the consular officers consider necessary. You can contact the Portugal embassy in China to ask if you need the bank statements for that.
