Regardless of the purpose or length of your trip to China, you will require a Chinese visa to gain entry. The four primary visa types are as follows:
However, the Ordinary Visa also consists of eight sub-categories. These sub-categories can broadly be defined by their purpose, with some visa classes intended for tourism and travel to China, other visa classes intended for business visitors to China and another visa class for permanent migrants to China.
Chinese Tourist Visas
(i) L Visa
Issued to an applicant who comes to China for tourist purposes, family visiting or other personal affairs. The L Visa is the Chinese visa most tourists will use to travel to the country for any period of time. Immigration for the purpose of tourism is possible under two types of tourist Chinese visa, for either single entry, or double entry.
The maximum duration of a tourist visa for China is a period of 3 months. In all cases, candidates must travel to China within three months of being granted entry clearance.
(ii) G Visa
Issued to those who transit through China. These are for visitors who will be travelling through China for a very short period of time, essentially acting as an airport transit visa for passage through China. However, travellers will also have to show that they have sufficient entry clearance for their destination after China too.
Chinese Business Visas
