Chinese Visa Requirements to See Beijing and Shanghai for Less than a Grand

by David Pacella | December 4th, 2010

If visiting China has always seemed just out of reach monetarily, Jaunted just uncovered an excellent travel deal that could change that. If you book ChinaSpree’s “8 Days A Tale of Two Cities” package, you can get airfare from San Francisco, hotel rooms with breakfast in both Beijing and Shanghai, and transfers from the airport to the hotel and city-to-city, all for only $777. If  you want to leave from the East Coast, the same package is available with airfare from JFK for just $200 more.

Once there, you can enjoy world-class shopping in either city, tour the Forbidden City and Tienanmen Square in Beijing, and more, either on your own or as part of an optional add-on tour from ChinaSpree.

One important item that isn’t included in the package: a Chinese tourist visa, or “L” visa. You absolutely have to have your Chinese visa in hand before you can leave, so it’s important to apply for it as soon as you book your tour. Here’s what you need to apply:

  • A Chinese visa application
  • Your US passport, which must be valid for at least 6 more months. You’ll also need at least one blank page in the back.
  • A copy of your passport’s information page (the page with your name, date of birth, etc on it).
  • One passport photo glued or stapled to the application.

If you are leaving within the next 7 days, include a copy of your travel itinerary so that your Chinese visa can be expedited.

Applying through a visa expediting company like Rushmytravelvisa can make the visa application process both easier and faster. Our visa specialists will guide you through the Chinese visa application process step-by-step, helping you avoid common mistakes that might ruin your trip. Then, we submit your Chinese visa application on your behalf to the Chinese Embassy to have it as processed as quickly as possible.
