Visa Information

A visa is required for Canadian visitors and most other nationalities. If there is a Chinese Embassy or Consulate General nearby your place, you can go and obtain your Chinese visa in person. Please note that the Chinese Embassy and Consulate Generals donít receive any mailing-in services. If your place is far away, you can only send your passport to a travel agent and ask for help.

In order to complete your application, one visa application form, one passport sized photo, and appropriate application fee must be submitted along with a passport valid for 6 months beyond travel date. Visas are normally valid for three months from the date of issue, and for one month from the date of entry into China. You can extend your stay in China with the authorization of the local Public Security Bureau in China. For detailed instructions on Chinese visa application, please click here.

Please note that the China National Tourist Office provides all kinds of travel information and brochures to the public, but we DO NOT accept any Chinese visa applications.
