      it will be Ok if your boyfriend have a bank statement account, as you are going to visit China together. but remember that the hotel reservation should include both of your names.

    Can someone help me? I am an indian of 19 years of age. For the visa application to China they have asked for a bank statement of 6 months and IT papers. However my bank account is only a week old and I am a student so where will the IT papers come from?! Moreover my mother has a income tax exemption.

    • Replied by: Hebe   Jul. 08, 2013 19:26

      the bank statement and IT papers can be your parents' if they are your sponsor of this trip.

    Hi, this is my second year in China and my visa expires in July as I'll be graduating from school. But I wish to spend the August month here and achieve something I've been waiting for. My school is unable to give me the one month extension. The only way out now is a tourist visa. Please, how do I go about it?

    • Replied by: Bonnie   May. 27, 2013 19:31

      you can consult the exit and entry department of local public security bureau, or a travel agency. another option is to apply the Chinese touris visa in hong Kong.

    • Replied by: Nancy   Apr. 23, 2013 18:35

      the invitation letter can be a written or typed one with the signature of your bf, and it can be faxed or posted to you, or a scanning one, but can not be an email. the letter should include the names of you and your bf, the addresses of both of you, the relationship of you two, your purpose of visiting China, period of your stay, and whether he will shoulder your expenses and provide you accommodation in China. there are samples of invitation letter on the internet.

  • ReplyKelly    Apr. 23, 2013 11:40

    I wanted to apply for a Chinese visa but my bank Ac.'s name n my passport name doesn't match so is it possible to obtain a visa without a bank statement ....if not then is there any other way ..please help ...I wanted to visit my bf in August ...

    • Replied by: Tom   Apr. 23, 2013 18:14

      then you can ask your bf to write an invitation letter for you and states that he will shoulder all of your expenses in China.

    • Replied by: Olivia   Apr. 15, 2013 20:15

      since you have the invitation letter duly from authorized unit, you do not need the ADB of account and ITR.

    • Replied by: Anthony   Apr. 16, 2013 21:21

      Hey its me again, the company failed to apply me a invitation from authorized unit, can the invitation letter from the chinese company can support my visa application?

    • Replied by: Bonnie   Apr. 17, 2013 18:40

      im afraid the invitation letter from the company does not work.

    • Replied by: Anthony   Apr. 17, 2013 18:43

      The company is based in HK and they will base in in SZ. How can the company based in hk apply for the invitation letter duly from authorized unit for business visa?

    • Replied by: David   Apr. 18, 2013 18:21

      usually it can be an invitation letter offerred by the company and then confirmed or approved by the competent authorities.

    Hello. I find your page very useful. Thanks for the information. I just have a question, however. I and my two other friends are planning to visit Shenzhen for at least a day (not exceeding 24 hours) from Hong Kong. I know for a fact that we need a Chinese Visa to enter the province. I just would like to confirm if applying through a travel agency will somehow aid us from avoiding the ‘bank statement’ part of the requirements? Also, if we need a ‘show money’, how much specifically do we need to show? Do you have any idea of the minimum amount required for a bank statement? In addition, it’s a BANK STATEMENT and not a BANK CERTIFICATE, am I correct?Thanks in advance for your reply. We would appreciate your tips.Arvin

    • Replied by: Frank   Apr. 01, 2013 19:32

      if you go to Shenzhen from Hong Kong, then i suggest that you book a tour or consult a travel agency in Hong Kong, then you will not need to apply the visa to Hong Kong, and no bank statement or show money will be required.

      you need to prepare your valid passport, a fully complete visa application form with your recently taken passport size photo, the invitation letter attach your fiance' personal ID copy, and your previous Chinese Visa . since you have applied China visa, you should be clear about the procedures. for detailed information, please consult the Chinese Embassy.

    Hi! Im from the philippines! I would just like to ask some concern regarding visa application for china. I dont have an itr form coming from bir. I can only provide a bank statement, passport Is it possible for me to still obtain a chinese visa? Its my first time to go to china.

    • Replied by: Bea   Mar. 11, 2013 22:34

      Hi Mitch! I read your query here. I just want to ask if you were being approved on your application without showing the Bank Statement, BIR and just showing the Invitation Letter from the Authorized travel Agency in China. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks po! Godbless

    • Replied by: Della   Oct. 08, 2012 00:39

      as this is your first time to China, you must submit BIR-stamped income tax return form,bank certiifcate, statement for recent 6 months and original bank receipt. If you are a student, please provide student ID, sponsorship letter and sponsor's bank statement. If you have the Invitation Letter for Tourist issued by Authorized Travel Agency in China, you do not need to submit income tax return form and bank certiifcate, statement.

  • ReplyBeatrice Mac    Mar. 10, 2013 03:51

    Hi, I just want to ask if you happened to know a valid travel agency where I can get an invitation for my China tour? thanks!

      as far as i know, a travel agency usually does not provide invitation letter unless you book a tour from the agency.

    I am American on business visa in china for almost two years now. My wife is filipina. I want her to stay with me here for the next few years without having to go home and all the hassle of Philippine immigration. It's bad. Can you recommend and agent to help with her residence or business visa. The last quotes I got are completely crazy. Some around 20,000 rmb for her visa. Thanks

  • ReplyIrene   Philippines    Nov. 21, 2012 04:20


    I have an invitation letter from a Chinese travel agency, I have booked tickets and hotel vouchers are already with me. I read that invitation from a travel agency is enough so that I do not need to present bank statements and ITR. Is this correct? Also, I just recently resigned from work. Would this affect my application?

    • Replied by: John   Feb. 21, 2013 18:49

      Where did you get the letter from the authorised travel agent? I can't find one. I am trying to get a visa for my GF to come to China with me.

    • Replied by: david   Nov. 21, 2012 18:10

      yes, it is correct.
      you'd better prepare all the required documents,or it will influence your application.
