Dear sir
i like to visit to china how can apply visa pls inform me what are the documents needed
Thanks hameed

 Answered by Ms. Hannah
You can apply for it from the Chinese embassy. For a tourist applicant, in principle he need to provide his passport with blank pages and at least 6 months validity left before expiration; a truly and completely filled application form affixed with one passport-sized photo; evidence of his financial capability of covering the travelling expenses there, and when necessary, provide the air, train or ship tickets to the heading country/region after leaving. For the applicants who come to visit relatives, some are required to provide invitation letters from their Chinese relatives.

If they don't apply for a tourist visa, the only choice is S2. Your university admission may be of some help for their application. Just have a try.

Hi, you should ask your trade partner in China to write an invitation letter for you. You should provide valid passport, application form and recent photo, invitation letter, copy of your incorporation certificate, copy of bank statement and copy of your inviter's Chinese ID. Plus, the embassy is not open on June 7, but you can go there from June 10 to June 14.

Hi, you can switch your student type to work type at local Public Security Bureau Exit and Entry Administration without leaving China. You need to provide your passport, application form and recent photo, a registration form of temporary residence and work permit. I don't have any information about the fee.
