2. Round trip air ticket booking record;

For those who intend to stay longer than 30 days in China, they should apply for a visa in advance in Mauritius , or apply for an extension of stay at the exit/entry administration of public security organ (PSB) under the local people's government at or above the county level in China 7 days prior to the expiry of the duration.

No, you need a visa to enter China. Since you reside in UK, you can make an appointment with local China Visa Application Service Center to lodge the application.

Thank you so much for your reply. I contacted Chinese Embassy in Mauritius. They told me I am exempt however I think this applies only if I am travelling from Mauritius. Is that correct?
Answered by Nancy | Sep. 17, 2023 18:52

I think you can believe the saying of Embassy. As I know, citizens of Mauritius who intend to stay no longer than 30 days in China, shall be exempted from visa requirement, no matter where they depart from. But if you intend to study, work, reside or engage in media activities shall apply for a visa.
Answered by Pretty | Sep. 18, 2023 23:17

Thank you. I think that makes sense.

I am just visiting China as a tourist for 9 days. I have been advised by a visa application company to apply for a visa. However I am aware that I am exempt as a Mauritian citizen. My departure and arrival flight will be from the UK.
