Tourist visa
Hi there,

I am looking at your tours of China (particularly Beijing) and was wondering about the visa situation. How easy is it to get a tourist visa to visit China right now?

Hi Tom,

So far, China has not opened up to inbound tourism, which means you can not get a tourist visa to visit China right now. You are suggested to check the website for tours to other countries. Thanks for your attention.

72 hours transit visa by train

I'll be traveling by train from Mongolia to Beijing Railway Station and flying out of China 65 hs later. I'm not sure if my itinerary is applicable for the 72 hs. transit visa regime, as I'm arriving to China by train and leaving by air.

Could you please calrify this?

Answered by Grace from IRELAND | Mar. 03, 2020 20:29

Dear, you are not eligible for the 72hrs transit visa because you enter China from Mongolia by train.

Itinerary section
Hi. I’m filling out the application for a tourist visa. I’m stuck on the itinerary section. If I have a long layover in Chongqing and want to go out and explore downtown but don’t have specific address, do I just put Chongqing? And in Beijing, will naming the places that I intend on going like “summer palace, forbidden city, etc.” suffice? Or can I just put my hotel address and that’s it??

Answered by John from USA | Oct. 23, 2019 18:23

You don't need to list Chongqing in your itinerary as you just transit there. For the itinerary in Beijing, you can just put in your hotel address. That's it.

Transit to third country, with the same start and end (4th/5th) country - is visa needed?
Dear, is the route Belgium - Beijing - Hong Kong - Belgium eligible for the 114h visa-free transit?
I can't find an example of a same start and end point.
I'll leave on the 6th day (or 5th day if counted as from "day 2" of arrival) from Beijing to Hong kong.

Update for my question: The flight from Brussels (Belgium) to Beijing is with a layover in Hong Kong for about 1-2h.
Answered by Saul | Aug. 07, 2019 07:42

You need a visa or different flights. The relevant part of your itinerary is Hong Kong-Beijing-Hong Kong which means you’re not in transit at Beijing.

Is it ok to have 72 or 144 hrs transit visas on both ways?
We (German family living in Japan) are planning to fly from Japan to Bali, stopping over 3 days in Bejing and stopping over 2 days in Shanghai on the way back on a transit visa. Is this possible and what is the right visa(s) to apply for? Thank you!
