If you want to apply a Q1 type, you need to prepare the required documents include your passport, the application form, passport-style photo, an invitation letter from your spouse and copy of her/his Chinese ID card, as well as your marriage certificate, and other documents the consular officers consider necessary. Next, submit the application to the visa office.

Usually, you need to provide a filled-out application form affixed with a passport-style photo, your passport and its photocopy, your identity certificate, round trip air tickets and hotel reservation. You need a invitation letter from your Chinese business partner if you want to apply for the business M type. You may need to pay TZS 200,000 per person for each application. Just for reference.
