    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?

      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.

    I am an Irish national but just a tourist to the Philippines, and want to get a 6 month mulch-entry tourist visa to China. Is it possible, or am I restricted to a 1 month tourist visa...or alternatively, can I apply for a Z-visa in Manilla (since i have an invitation of employment).M

    Hi, My boyfriend is starting to work in China this Feb 2013 and he has a contract and permit to work there until Dec 2014.My boyfriend and I have a 9 month old son , we plan to join him later this summer when he turns 1 yr old. What do I need to submit to apply for a tourist visa? We also thought that traveling with me (bf) and my son would be better than going there alone. Pls advise. Thanks.

      what is your nationality? Beijing is now visa-free for 72 hours to visitors from 45 countries if they hold connecting air tickets departing from Beijing.

      the invitation letter should come from an official unite, authoriized travel agency, a Chinese citizen (your friend or relative).

      yes, you can. but you need to provide the valid visa or residence permit in the Philippines.

    Hi I am from Philippines, me and my boyfriend is planning to go to Hongkong this Feb 5-19 and we are still waiting for my uncle's invitation letter. Do we still need to wait for it? Or we can proceed and stay in HK for 14days without the invitation letter? What documents we'll be needing? I NEED YOUR HELP :(

    • Replied by: Kevin   Jan. 05, 2013 18:01

      I think your uncle's invitation letter is not that necessary. You may enter and stay in Hk for 14 days with your valid visa, two-way air tickets, hotel booking in Hk and bank statement of enough money to cover your duration there.

      yes, an invitation letter from your boyfriend works.
      the bank statement is only required for the first time Chinese visa applicants.
      good luck and have a nice trip!

      You need to provide your valid passport, filled application form, two-way air ticket, invitation letter from your boy friend and copies of his Chinese residence permit and passport.

    I purchased two round trip tickets to China: Mla-Xiamen for January 2013 and mla-shanghai for August 2013. Last October though my bank account got accidentally closed so I opened a new one just two months ago. I have more than 100k in my account. I noticed that they are very strict now with the ADB of accounts. Is it possible for my mother to sponsor me instead? Her bank account has been around since 2003. She's not going with me on the trips and she is in the Philippines. I mean can a parent sponsor me even if I am employed and not a student? I will still bring my bank certificate and my mom's bank certificate. What do you think is my chance of getting a visa? i've been travelling alot in southeast asia and korea will that help? Thanks and more poewer!

      i think it is ok that your mother sponsor your trip. and there is chance for you to get the visa. just have a try!

    hi just wanted to ask if what kind of invitation letter i need? i have a friend in beijing and he's asking me to visit him. He's asking how to do that invitation letter.

    • Replied by: Richard   Nov. 20, 2012 17:10

      the invitation letter can be write by pen or printed out with the autograph of inviter. it can be faxed, posted by letter or scaned, but can not be email.
      an invitation letter should include the names and address of inviter and invitee, and their relationship. the purpose and how long the invitee going to stay in China. whether the inviter will prodive accommodation or travel expense for the invitee.
      it is very easy to find samples online.

    • Replied by: Babara   Nov. 05, 2012 17:32

      yes, a bank certificate is asked to show, but you will also be required to show the pocket money which can cover your expense in Macau.

    • Replied by: Sally   Oct. 30, 2012 19:24

      Hi Jenny,
      Filipino passport holders are exempt from Hong Kong visa for 14 days, so you do not need to apply the visa for hong Kong if your trip is less than 14 days.

  • ReplyMeghan   United States    Oct. 22, 2012 12:37

    My boyfriend and I are US citizens. My boyfriend is in China for 6 months on a tourist visa. I just bought plane tickets to visit him and I will be staying in his apartment for the duration of my trip. Do I need to get a letter of invitation from him? Is he even allowed to write me a letter of invitation since he is also a US citizen?

    • Replied by: Andy   Oct. 22, 2012 20:21

      yes, you can ask him to write an invitation letter for you.

    Hi, I am a student and my dad is sponsoring my trip. However my dad has no ITR.
    I made a joint affidavit of support saying that both my mom and dad will support my trip. Is it possible that I submit my dad's bank cert and my mom's ITR? btw, do i still need to submit my parents' employment/business cert? thank you.

      hi Peter, where do you plan to visit? what visa are you going to apply?

      Hey amanda! Peter here. Im going to beijing with my friends. Just wanna ask if its okay to submit mixed requirements of my parents. THats what I did in korea. Obviously getting a chinse visa is much harder than SK.

    • Replied by: Amanda   Oct. 18, 2012 18:56

      yes, it is not that easy to get a Chinses visa. i think you can have a try, since it worked when applying a SK visa.
