Invitation letter and travel visa
Hello! I recieved an invitation letter from a family in Beijing and would like to apply for a travel /tourist visa. What other documents do I need for that? I have read that I'll need bank documents and employment document as well, can the invitation letter cancel those, because I work as an online tutor so that's a freelance job with no contract I can provide

Feriel, you can't apply for a tourist visa by yourself. You have join a tour group organized by destinated travel agencies in order to get this visa.

What visa are you applying for?
Answered by Feriel from TUNISIA | Oct. 31, 2019 03:51

Student visa
Answered by Daisy | Oct. 31, 2019 18:32

In principle, the financial proof should be yours or your parents'. You can contact the embassy to see if the one from your host family works.

Feriel, aside from the acceptance document from the school, you need to submit your passport, application form printout, a recent photo, the JW201 or 202 form, and a financial proof with at least 2,500 US dollars per year to cover your study. If you have won a scholarship, you can provide a certificate of it.
