Questions & Answers on China Consulates in Italy
Asked by Arianna from ITALY | Jun. 01, 2019 09:05Reply
Should we need an inviter in China
1. Should we need an inviter in China? I see we need to put a name in the application. We don't know anyone in China so it can be complicated.

2. Is it a problem if we enter through the mongolia by train?

1. Invitation letter is not necessary as long as you can provide round trip air tickets and hotel reservation.
2. You can enter China by train from Mongolia.

Thank you very much for this answer. Last question. Do I need to show also the train ticket from Ulan Bator for the VISA application? The problem is that I cannot buy by myself the international ticket in advance.

Best regards,
Arianna Minelli

Hi, you need to show the ticket from Ulan Bator when applying. So you are advised to buy in advance.

Hi, if you will make the application it in Italy, first, you are supposed to provide your passport and its photocopy, a filled-out application form affixed with a passport-style photo, residence permit or valid visa in Italy, round trip air tickets and hotel reservation. Then submit the application to the CVASC.
