Chinese Tourist Visa
A Chinese Tourist visa is for those who wish to enter mainland China for sightseeing purposes or to visit friends. If you are going for a short trip to China, you will need to obtain a tourist visa beforehand. If you have joined an organised tour, the application should be straightforward as your tour company should have all the supporting documents ready for you. For backpackers, you may need to plan in advance as the Embassy will require flights + hotel bookings as supporting documents.
