Questions & Answers on China Embassy in Turkey
Asked by D from FRANCE (TURKISH CITIZEN) | Sep. 19, 2019 02:45Reply
Chinese Visa for Conference
I am a Turkish citizen and I am applying to Chinese visa to go to a conference. I received an invitation letter with all signature and contact information and it works for most nationalities, however since I hold Turkish passport, the embassy is asking me for the official invitation letter (TE). The conference organizers are not helpful about getting a TE although it should take them a couple of days only. They say it is a busy period for paperwork as there is a national holiday and I won't be able to get it in time, they say the embassy can call them to confirm their IDs etc etc. It is really frustrating they just won't bother. Is there any way I can waive this requirement? I have my round trip flights, train tickets, hotels booked, I have a letter from my employee that says they will be covering all costs. I can get my criminal records, whatever is needed. It is not a training program but a simply conference.

If the embassy insists that you need this TE letter, I'm afraid you have to submit it.

Hi! I have a Turkish passport and need to travel from Netherlands to China for business.
The company in China can't issue me an invitation letter from the municipality because all their activities are registered in Hong Kong. What documents can I provide to safely apply for my visa? Many thanks in advance!

The invitation letter is required when you apply for the visa. if the company is registered in Hong Kong, you could only been invited to Hong Kong.

Lisa, you can apply from the China Visa Application Service Center in Istanbul. Apart from normal documents, you need to submit your residence permit, work permit, student permit or Turkish visa.
