I am a former student of a Chinese University. I want to visit China again, this time for travel and to meet friends there. How do I apply for visa and what documents do I need?
I plan to meet some exporters in Shenzhen, China.
I am dual national of Pakistan and United Kindom.
I may travel from either London or Islamabad.
I would like to apply for a multiple entry visa.
What would be the best approach?
Thanks in advance.
