Hello I’m Khelma and I’m in the UK I want to get a visa for my mother as she wants to buy somethings
May I know all the procedures we will need to do

Answered by Marcy | Apr. 10, 2024 19:21

Buy somethings? I think she'll need a tourist L visa. Filling in the application form online is the first step, and the basic requirements are as following:
Visa Application Form (filled in online and printed out) and Photo
Documents showing the itinerary including air ticket booking record (round trip) and proof of a hotel reservation
With all of them prepared, you need to submit the them to the nearest CVASC.

You need to fill in the application form at first, print it out, sign it, and prepare all the requirements (also incluing passport and an invitation letter from your business partner in China) for visa type and submit all the things to the consular office. The visa fee is USD 50 for a single entry. For the round trip flight, it depends on which city you want to land in China.
