china visa


China, also known as the Peoples Republic of China, ranks first for the most populous country in the world and second for the largest land area mass. China is a complex country consisting of many religious, indigenous, and governmental groups. To add to the complexity, Chinas land mass encompasses high mountain ranges, lush wetlands, arid plains, vast lakes, and intricate rivers. China is a communist country and up until the last 30 years has been a predominantly closed society. Recently they have emerged as a world superpower, a power broker at the UN, and the fastest-growing major economy. The official spoken language of China is Chinese, which can be broken down into 29 sub-sects. The overwhelmingly majority speak Mandarin followed by Wu, Yue, and Min.


China plays host to a wide range of environmental, structural, and cultural attractions. Some of the well known places to visit are the Great Wall of China, the base line of Mt. Everest, a view of impressive statutes of ancient Terracotta Warriors or partake taking in a ride ferry through the lush wetlands of the Yangtze River, or immerse yourself in the tantalizing shopping district of the Forbidden City. China offers many options to tap into your touristic senses and will not be a disappointment.


Chinese cuisine is highly diverse and takes into account all the different regions of China. Most dishes are served with either noodles or white rice. The food is cooked in a bevy of sauces and can consist of various kinds of meat. Most food is served with the traditional chopsticks, which is tied into ancient Chinese History and has been in circulation for 1000s of years. Dont worry, they have forks too!


The Chinese monetary system is based on Renminbi, which is the official currency of the Peoples Republic of China. The units of Renminbi are the Yuan, Jiao, and Fen. 1 Yuan=10 Jiao= 100 Fen. If you come upon Fen, you will find yourself with a collector item, as the Chinese government has systematically begun to faze them out. The IMF puts the exchange rate at 1 Yaun = $.157. This is a variable exchange and can change based on market fluctuations.

Entering China

All visitors to China must obtain a visa prior to entering the country. Visas can be obtained at a local Chinese consulate or Embassy in said individuals host country. There are no special immunizations or health requirements required, but visitors from certain countries or with certain visa stamps may be asked to complete a health form and interview. You will also be asked to declare any photography or mobile video devices. They will also advise you on any restrictions of use of such devices.

Travel Warnings

In current day times, most travel warnings occur when Muslim separatist militants and the government clash in the autonomous region of Xinjiang Uyghur. There have been also random outbreaks of violence in the Tibetan flat lands and mountains. China maintains an excellent state security service and in major tourist areas criminal acts happen infrequently.
