Hi, it's possible for you to get multi-entry business M type in Malta for that.
First, prepare your passport and copy of its data page, the completed application form attached with a passport-style photo, your Malta visa and its copy, an invitation letter, and other required documents.
Next, submit the application to China embassy to apply for Chinese business M type.
You can choose the rush service to get the result within 3 days.

question about Spouse visa
My (future) French wife has secured a job in China. We have been advised that as a spouse I may be attached to her working Z type. Is this correct? If no, which type of entry permit do I apply for? I am a UK citizen.
Many thanks,

Drew, I’m afraid not because according to what you said, you two haven’t gotten married yet. And the spouse S type is issued to those who visit their family members work or study in PRC.
Considering your case, I think you can apply for tourist L type.
Answered by Drew Garlick from MALTA | Feb. 04, 2016 05:00

Hi Dylan,

we will be married by the time we go to China, hence I will be a spouse!

Thanks for your help on this.
