      If it is your first time to apply for the visa, I advise you entrust a reliable visa agency to help you. If you have had a China visa before, then you can just go to the China Embassy to apply for it yourselt. Thus you don't need to pay any service charge any more.

    Hello, I plan to meet up a friend in Beijing middle of January 2012. My Philippine passport will expire July 2012. Do you think my passport will still get the visa if I have to apply next month?

    I have used Chinese visa in my passport (Z and F), proof that it is not my first time to enter the mainland, do I still need to present other documents like bank certificates?

    I would appreciate a reply to my email. Thank you.

      Hi An Lin,
      don't worry,
      you can get the China visa.
      you don't need to provide documents like your bank certificates, just your passport, visa application form and Previously used China visas.
      the China visa is usually valid for 1 month, so i suggest you apply it in December if you go to China in January.

      you need to book a tour package through a Chinese travel agency so that the agency will provide the invitation letter for you.

    We are a family travelling to Hong Kong, Macau & Disneyland for about 7 days.
    1. Do we need separate visas for HKG & Macau?
    2. Can we get the visas done before we fly out of India?

    • Replied by: Candy   Sep. 26, 2011 19:51

      Indian passport holders are exempt from both Hong Kong and Macau visas for certain periods. you may refer to the following two pages for the detailed information.

    Good day, I was invited by a family friend to visit him in china for 15 days and he will shoulder all my expenses while i'm there in china but currently i'm unemployed. I already have these requirements:
    1. Passport
    2. NBI Clearance for Travel Abroad
    3. Original Bank Certificate (personal)
    4. Roundtrip Air Ticket
    5. Invitation letter from the person who invited me together with his Bank certificate, copy of sponsor's valid residence visa and passport information page.

      you don't need to apply for visas for Hong Kong and Macau.
      there will be stamps on your passport.

    I am from Malaysia . Do I need a visa to Macao? What about a trip to the border of China.. i.e. Choo..something which is a walking distance from Macao only? it is only a day trip

    • Replied by: Rebecca   Apr. 24, 2011 02:20

      Malaysian passport holders are exempt from Macau visa for 30 days, so you don't need to apply for a Macau visa. but as long as you enters the Chinese border, you need a Chinese visa.

      hi helarie,
      you can not apply the China visa in Hong Kong, but apply it in your country.
      actually, if you go to Shenzhen with a tour group organized by a local travel agency in Hong Kong and stay in Shenzhen less than 6 days, you don't need a China Visa.

      if you want to stay longer than 14 days, you need to apply for the Hong Kong visa. and the Hong Kong visa can be obtained within one month.

      you need to make sure the validity of your child's passport is at least 44 days by the day you arrive in Hong Kong, if the validity is less than 44 days, you need to renew the passport.

      hi Vinay,
      if you still want to go to mainland China after your tour to Hong Kong, you need to obtain a China tourist visa through the Chinese Embassy in India before your departure, and you are suggested to apply it one month in advance.
