Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Saudi Arabia
Asked by Muhammad from PAKISTAN | Feb. 04, 2019 11:52Reply
Tourist Visa Documents.
Hi there,

I am a Pakistani by origin who is working as a Professor at a state university in Saudi Arabia. I intend to visit China with my family. While I was reading the details of the content of a required support letter by an employer, I came to know that the letter should contain (along with other things) the purpose of the visit, the planned date of entry and financial conditions. Normally, the governmental universities here only issue a letter named " tareef ratab" (salaray details letter) addressing your required agency. The letter has nothing to do with the 'the purpose of the visit, the planned date of entry and financial conditions' of an employee. What is the way out in the scenario. Can you share a specific format of such a letter. Thanking you in anticipation.

As far as I know, independent tourist from Pakistan is not accepted by China, so you have to join a tourist group to apply for a group tourist L type for China.

Thank you very much,Rachel. Can you comment further on how to catch and join a group for the purpose?

Hi, if you want to apply for HK visit visa in Saudi Arabia, and if you go there for tourism purpose, you need to provide copy of passport, the application form affixed with a passport-style photo, proof of your financial support, residence permit in Saudi Arabia, transportation and accommodation arrangement, and your travel plan. Then, submit the application to China embassy or consulate to apply for that.
