  Asked by Ms. jaay  
Hi, I have been in china on internship and business since 2011. I have been in and out and now I want to go back again for business and the company is providing me with the invitation letters and all. However, I hear that the Chinese embassy is only giving 30 days even for business trips or internships yet mine is for about 5 months as I am attached with a voluntary organization in Beijing. So what do I do then if I need a 6 months visa with double entry as I often go in and out for the sake of the program I am under. Thanks.

 Answered by Mr. Bob
If the voluntary organization in Beijing can apply for an notification letter from the Beijing Foreign Affaires Office for you, the notification letter prescribe that you need to stay for 5 months, exit and enter frequently for the program, then you can obtain a multiple entry valid for 6 months at the embassy.

It does not matter how long you are going to stay in China, you need a visa to enter. For the purpose of tourism, a tourist visa is needed and the requirements include your passport, application form, flight and hotel bookings in China.

Maybe you can submit the previous JW and the latest admission notice from your university instead to try to get the visa. Tell the official your situation about obtaining a new JW paper.

It's not very possible for you to get one in 7 days. You need to fill out the application form here and then make an appointment to submit it together with other requirements. Recently, it's not easy to get an appointment for it's always full.
