Notice of Payment

Chinese embassy refuses to accept Cash as means of payment. Applicants should make payments by VISA/MASTER Card.

How the aliens apply for the notarial deed that will be used in China?

Chinese embassy or consulate in foreign countries doesn't accept notarization application from the foreign citizens (including ethnical Chinese with foreign nationality), so aliens should first apply for notarization to concerned authorities in their own countries. Then they take the Notarial Deed to apply for authentication to Chinese embassy or consulate.

Mutual Visa Exemption between China and Qatar

According to Mutual Visa Exemption, Qatar citizens with ordinary passports may stay in China for less than 30 days without visa. Within the 30 days, the Qataris can visit families and friends, conduct a short business trip or travel in mainland China. If intending to remain in China for more than 30 days, or visiting the country for studying or working purpose, a visa should be applied from the Chinese embassy beforehand.

Group Visa to China

Chinese Group Visa is for foreigners who come in tour groups. The biggest difference from other types is that it is issued on a separate paper instead of on the passports. Moreover, all the members of the tour group should enter and exit the Chinese border together. One tour group has at least five people.  

Requirements for Applying Chinese Tourist L

Besides the passport and application form, Qatari citizens also need to offer the certificate of financial capability of burdening the expenses. If necessary, the air ticket, train ticket or ship ticket to destination after leaving China is required. For people who come for visiting kin, the invitation letter from their kin should be provided.

 Please contact Embassy of Qatar in China if Qatari citizens are in troubles there.

Dear Sir,
I am writing to seek clarification regarding the application process for a tourist visa to Guangzhou, China.
As an Indian national currently residing in Qatar, I am planning to visit Guangzhou for a period of 3 to 5 days as a tourist. Could you kindly advise me on whether I require an invitation from China or if I can apply directly online?
I greatly appreciate any assistance or guidance you can provide in this matter. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Thank You

You can either apply in Burundi or Qatar, depending on where you are, which means you need to show up to lodge the submission at local China embassy or consulate.

Before going, you need to fill in the application form and make an appointment online: cova.mfa.gov.cn

Generally, for business purpose, an invitation letter issued by a Chinese business or trade partner or Chinese authorities is necessary.

You can get an visa application form from cova.mfa.gov.cn. It is hard to find the fee in Qatar. However, in Lebanon visa center, it costs USD 30 for a single-entry visa and the service fee is USD 44.4.
