Elvis, it's hard to say. Sometimes even if you have all the right documents, your visa application is still rejected.

If you know some business partner in China, you can apply for an M visa; if not, you can only apply for a tourist visa. However, during the epidemic period, I'm afraid you cannot get the M visa or tourist visa. You can start the application after the entry ban of China is lifted.

You can only apply for a tourist visa if you don't know anyone in China. You need to book tickets, hotels first and then apply for the visa, but you should wait until China reopens the border for tourists.
