All international travellers require visas except Brunei, Japan, and Singapore passport holders, who can enjoy visa-free access to Mainland China for up to 15 days.
Standard 30-day, single-entry visas can be issued in three to five working days from most Chinese embassies and consulates. These must be used within three months of the date of issue. Long-term visas are often more difficult to obtain.
For further details, consult your travel agent, China International Travel Service, China Travel Service, or any Chinese embassy or consulate.
