All visitors to China require a visa excluding citizens of Japan, Singapore and Brunei, holding ordinary passports.
Visas must be obtained prior to arrival. For details of entry requirements to China and for an application form you should contact the nearest Chinese Embassy or Consulate in good time before your departure.
A 30-day single-entry visa can be issued from most Chinese Embassies within three to five working days. We urge you to apply for your visa at the earliest convenience.
Due to new regulations, some delegates may need additional documents when applying for their Chinese visa. Your passport must be valid for more than 6 months and you may need to provide an itinerary of your visit.
