You need to get a tourist visa for China, which is classified as type L visa. However, due to the current covid restrictions, China does not issue tourist visas at present.

You need to submit your COVID-19 test reports and certificate showing that you have received the Sinopharm Vaccine to apply for a health code. If your visa was issued before November 2020, you may also need to renew your visa.
