Chinese Visa Application Service Center (CVASC)

From September 29th, 2015, the Center is responsible for receiving applications of ordinary passport holders for visiting mainland China. Postal service for applications is currently not available. Online appointment is not mandatory but strongly recommended.

Applicants holding Diplomatic, Service or Official passport, or who apply for Hong Kong/Macao visa/entry permit, should still submit the application directly to the Embassy.

Meanwhile, the CVASC office in Thailand provides document authentication service at a certain cost. Foreigners in need of this service should go to the CVASC instead of the embassy while Chinese applicants are still required to apply for the authentication service from the embassy.

Does a Thai Passport qualify for 24 hour transit free through GUANGZHOU , BAIYUN AIRPORT?
We are one Thai passport and two Canadian passports traveling through GUANGZHOU , BAIYUN AIRPORT

We have a 19-hour layover in transit and would like to book a hotel near the Airport.

I see the Canadian passport is OK for 24 hours but not sure in regards to the Thai Passport.

Do we need a Visa for a Canadian or Thai Passport?

24-hour visa-free transit in China, also called the 24-hour transit without visa (24-hour TWOV for short), regulates that visa is not required for air, train, and ship passengers transiting in mainland China for a stay of no more than 24 hours before heading for a third country or region.
