If you are planning a trip to the People’s Republic of China, you will need to apply for your own visa. Whether it’s a business trip, a family holiday or any other type of visit there is no way around this often lengthy, painful and potentially expensive process (unless you are visiting Hong Kong or Macao, or are simply changing planes in China).  However Visafly is on hand to assist.

Visas must be submitted and collected in person by the applicant themselves or by an entrusted third party. It is important to remember that you cannot chose the start date for your visa, and that in fact they run for three months from the date of issue, so please bare this in mind when applying.

Applications from those born in China but holding a current passport, and applications from journalists or those going to interview people in China, are vetted extra carefully. You should also make sure that your passport has two blank pages, is valid for at least 6 months from the date of your visa application and that complete all forms truthfully. You will also need to provide a passport photo along with every application.

If you require a quick visa application, we offer a Priority VIP service that will see someone come to you to collect all the necessary documentation and photographs, meaning that you can be rest assured you will get your visa as and when required.

Please select your visa entry type from the options below. You will then be able to select the turnaround time required. Application forms and a Visafly China visa guide will be sent in your confirmation email.
