Effective immediately, the Chinese Consulates in the US have amended their procedure for applicants wishing to apply for visas. Please read below for the updated changes.
For those seeking a Chinese tourist visa, you will need to provide an airline reservation, a copy of your hotel booking visa application guidelines, and a copy of your inviters residence card in China. If you do not have a hotel booking, your host must provide you with an official invite for China.
Business travelers, will need to provide an official invitation letter from the host company in China, which must state:
- Full Name
- Date of Birth
- Passport #
- Passport Expiration
This letter must be addressed to the correct Consulate of China, explain the nature or purpose of business, and how long the applicant will remain on the business trip. The letter must also include the names, departments, and organizations in China you are intending to visit. It must also include the visa validity and how many entries, i.e. multiple, doublie, single, the applicant will need. Lastly, the letter must be on a company letter head and have the correct signature or stamp.
These are a lot of instructions and I tend to find that with the an over abundance of instructions, things tend to be left out. Therefore, if you have questions regarding the new procedure, please do not hesitate to contact us at 866-378-1722 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your questions will certainly be addressed and we are glad to assist in anyway that we can.
