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.
