You may work with us to obtain your People’s Republic of China tourist visa. We can usually obtain the visa faster and easier than if you do it on your own.

 

If you wish to obtain your own visa, bear in mind that an old one you have probably won’t be valid. Most tourist visas are valid for only
one entry. Travelers require a new visa for additional entries into China. Chinese authorities fine those who arrive without a visa up to 5,000 renminbi (about $600 U.S.) at the port of entry and may not allow them to enter China.

 

Tourist visas for individuals cost is $140 and are routinely issued at Chinese embassies or consulates abroad. You can apply for a visa at the Chinese Embassy or Consulate in Washington D.C., Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, or San Francisco.

 

To apply, you must apply in person or through a visa agent with your application form, valid passport, two photographs and fees. CCE can help you to apply for your visa.  Our fee is $50, plus visa fee of $140 and postage.
