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.

To apply for business visa, an invitation letter is a must. Maybe you can ask one of the suppliers to provide it for you. Other requirements include application form, whihc should be filled online, printed out and signed and your passport. Your acccount should have USD15,000 at least for 3 months.

How can I get Business a visa
Dear Sir/Madam
I am a Sri Lankan and working for a multinational company and one of our branches in China has invited me for business meeting. I have got the invitation letter but our travel agent said that the invitation letter should have Chinese red seal. But our branch in china doesn’t know it and they asked for a sample. May know what I can do

Answered by Olivia | Mar. 12, 2023 19:20

The red seal of your branch in China is OK. As for the content of the invitation letter, it should include your name, purpose of visit, places to visit, date of arrival and leaving, hotel and more.
