      yes, Nav,
      you need to apply a Chinese visa for your Shenzhen tour, but if you going with a tour group organized by a local travel agency in Hong Kong and stay in Shenzhen less than 6 days, you do not need to apply the visa.

      2. a completely filled out visa application form
      3. a recently taken passport size photo,
      4. the original NBI Clerance valid for travel abroad.

      Hi Joy,
      all those documents you said are required, and you also need to submit the original NBI clearance for traveling abroad as this is your frist time to apply a China visa.
      i think you can get this visa, just take it easy.
      Good luck!

    Hi guys, thanks for this site and great free advise. My filipina wife has been visiting me every month in China for the last year, as I have been there on business. She has no problem to renew the visa herself every second month, it is always approved. This time however, I do not want her to stand in line again and wait 2 days in Manila for her visa. Is there an agency that can help with the renewal of her visa? She already has 5 L visas in her passport but we still could not get a multiple entry visa, only a double entry visa every time. Your help will be greatly appreciated! Salamat po!

      Your wife may entrust a reliable travel agency or visa agency to help to apply for the visa for her, but she has to pay service fee to the agency.

    We are embarking on a cruise that visits Hong Kong for 1 day and ends up in bejing where we stay for 3 nights before returning to the UK. We are british passport holders but are residing in spain over the period of the chinese visit>

    1, Can we obtain a tourist visa from the Chinese embassy in madrid, and how do we do that?
    2, For those to entries into China will we need multiple entry visas as we will be residing on the ship?
    3, Do I have to go to the chinese embassy in person or can it be achieved another way?

    • Replied by: Lisa   Feb. 04, 2012 23:37

      1. You should apply for the China visa from the China visa application center in Madrid in fact.
      2. Although you will reside in the ship at night, but you will walk down the ship and to visit Beijing City at daytime, right? Then, you do have to apply for a Hk visa and a China visa (one entry is ok, since you will only visit Beijing).
      3.You can either go to the center in person to aubmit your application or just post yoru application to the center. The detailed information can be got from the official website http://www.visaforchina.org/MAD_EN/

    Hi,can i be granted a 24hr chinese visa since we already have our airline tickets confirmed on feb 4,2012 for Shanghai? We are tourists and only have our hotel reservations. Do we have the chance to secure a chinese visa considering that we only have 5 days to go? Do you know of a travel agency that can help us process our chinese visa? Thanks

    • Replied by: Cathy   Jan. 29, 2012 18:20

      yes, there is urgent visa service in the Chinese Embassy that you can collect your visa on the next working day with an extra serice fee.
      in this case, you need to prepare the following documents:
      your valid passport, a fully filled visa application form, your recently taken passport size photo, your hotel reservation, and original NBI clerance valid for travel abroad.

    good day!my friend who is a chinese national is inviting me to visit him in april this year. im holding a philippine passport, what are the requirements for me to apply for a tourist visa?and how much will it cost me?

    • Replied by: Brain   Jan. 28, 2012 18:40

      it is suggested to apply the Chinese visa one month prior to your departure date.
      you can ask your friend you provide you an invitation letter,a photocopy of his or her passport information page or Chinese National ID Card.
      the documents you need to subway are:
      your valid passport, a fully filled out visa application form which you can download from from the official website of Chinese Embassy in the Philippines, a recently taken passport size photo, and the original NBI Clerance valid for travel abroad.
      the visa fee is 1,300 Peso for a single entry visa.

    Hi, Terry, thanks for the reply. I would like to ask another question. How long does it take to travel by tourist bus from Macau to Guangchou? How much does it cost for the travel and an overnight stay in a hotel? Many thanks.

    • Replied by: Ashley   Jan. 08, 2012 18:33

      it takes about 2.5 hours and costs CNY 70 for the bus trip.
      the hotel rate in Guangzhou is usually around CNY 200 -300 per night.

    Hello, I woould like to inquire if Phlippine Passport holder can apply for a chinese visa, me and my family wanted to cross the border to visit Zhu Hai for a day of sightseeing.Please give additional information. Thanks.

    • Replied by: Terry   Jan. 04, 2012 18:54

      of course, you can apply the Chinese visa, but you need to apply the visa through the Chinese Embassy in the Philippines before you go.
      usually you are supposed to start to apply the visa one month's before you go.
      as you mentioned you are going to "cross the border", i guess you are/will be in Hong Kong or Macau, right? if so, you can not apply the Chinese visa in Hong Kong or Macau, but need to go back to the Philippines to apply the visa.
      to save you the time and money for going back to the Philippines, you can join in a group tour organized by a qualified Hong Kong or Macau travel agency to Zhuhai, then if you stay in Zhuhai less than 6 days, you do not need to apply the Chinese visa.
      Gook Luck

    Hi, My family already bought tickets for Beijing tour on Dec 31- Jan 6th. My parents and 2 siblings already got their visas in the United States so it'll be just me and my brother here in Manila who'd be getting China visas. My stepdad is sponsoring this trip. What documents should I present during visa application? Would it help if I bring photocopies of my parents' approved China visas? Thanks a lot!

    • Replied by: Ginger   Dec. 14, 2011 18:03

      you'd better apply the visa as soon as possible. i think the time is very tight for you to apply the Chinese visa.
      you can check at the official webside of Chinese Embassy in the Philippines for the requried documents.
      kind reminder: try to get an invitation letter from a person in China, as well as the photocopy of his or her valid Chinese residence visa and passport information page or Chinese national identity card.
      as this is your first Chinese visa, you also need to submit the orginal NBI clearance valid for travel abroad.

    • Replied by: Ashley   Dec. 14, 2011 17:20

      Hi Pearl,
      you can try to extend your visa before it expires in the Exit and Entry Bureau in Wuhan, if you have to apply a new one, you can not apply the visa in Hong Kong, you need to apply it in your country.

      you can ask your mom to apply a tourist visa and come to China, and then change to a dependent visa when she is in China.

      Hi Ryan,
      filipino passport holders are exempt from Macau visa for 30 days, so you don't need to apply a visa for your tour to Macau, an invitation letter is also not necessary.

  • ReplyGina   Philippines    Nov. 26, 2011 19:46

    Does the scanned copy of invitation letter is acceptable?
