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.

Please let me know what documents to be prepared by myself as well as my family in Sri Lanka? and also requirement of Covid-19 Vaccination any specific name?.

Answered by David | May. 17, 2021 23:35

Your family should apply for S visas, not tourist type. The requirements include their passports, recent photos, application forms, invitation letter from you, copy of your Chinese resident permit, the marriage certificate/ birth certificate.

If they accept Chinese covid-19 vaccines, the possibility of success will be higher.

Answered by Leona | Feb. 17, 2021 17:16

As the situation is not clear, it's hard to say whether you can get a visit visa for going to China in June this year. Plus, a tourist visa usually only allows a stay or 30 days.

Answered by Nishantha | Mar. 03, 2021 02:31

Answered by Leona | Mar. 03, 2021 17:21

If you have enough documents to prove that you do need to stay for two months, you may get an extension. When you will be able to travel to China is unknown at present.
