China visa fees vary enormously according to your nationality, the number of entries required, the country you are applying in, and whether you want an express service. It is normally paid on visa collection, but in some localities it must be paid when you apply.
 

Visa Fee for Application from Chinese Embassy

In most countries, the embassy and consulate charge fees according to the number of entries on the issued visa. Usually, the more entries you get, the more expensive your visa is. While Americans need to pay fixed fee of USD 140 no matter how many entries they apply. Besides, extra money is required for rush or express services.

 Note:
1. You can click the links of the Chinese embassies to know more about visa fees. 
2. The prices in CNY listed in the form may be different from final payment because exchange rate changes at times. 
3. Applicants in Angola, Canada, and the United Kingdom are required to apply from the CVASC, so they need to pay the visa fee as well as the service fee to the CVASC.

The application fees of China Visa on Arrival and the cost of getting or renewing a visa at the exit and entry administration of the local PSB within China are the same as a single-entry visa, ie., CNY 168 for most countries.
 

Visa Fee for Application from CVASC

Some countries are set up with Chinese Visa Application Service Center, also called CVASC, such as Australia, Canada, and Indonesia. Their citizens holding ordinary passports are supposed to apply for Chinese visa from there. The CVASC offers postal service for applicants in some countries, that is to say, applicants are permitted to submit the required documents and pick up visa by post. Accordingly, they should pay for that. Total payment charged by the center consists of visa fee, application service fee and tax as well as postage if you choose the postal service.
 

Visa Fee for Application from Visa Agents

They operate in China and in some other countries. At the simplest they can take over your application and handle it for you. This is convenient if you do not live in a city where there is a consulate, or if your situation is more complex, especially when you apply within China.

Visa agents will be helpful for they can provide supporting documents such as invitation letters. The agent is genuine in being able to deliver the application more flexibly than the individual applicants. A disadvantage is that they will charge higher fees from you.
