China Visa Requirements - Header ImageWhen planning any trip to this part of the world, no matter what the reason, you must make sure you are up-to-date on the latest China visa requirements.

Fortunately, if you are one of the participants on a CK Martial Hearts 10-Day Shaolin Temple Experience, all you will need is a tourist visa. For most countries, that means simply visiting your local Chinese consulate and filling in some paperwork, paying the fee and collecting your visa-stamped passport a few days later.

Apart from a few exception, the majority of people coming to China will require a visa, even if only travelling on holiday for a few weeks. Full details on how and where to apply for tourist visas for China, can be seen here.

If taking a vacation is not your only plan for China, then you need to make sure you are applying for the correct visa type. China currently has a myriad of visa types, and it can be a bit overwhelming. But basically, if you are coming to China to engage in business activities, you will need to make sure you have applied for a business visa, which will require documentation from both your employer, and the company you are looking to do business with in China.

And if you are hoping to work in China, and receive a salary, then you must make sure you have the correct work visa, details of which your China employer should be able to give you.

Of course, once you have the correct visa, you still need to pay attention to how long the visa is valid for, and how many days you can stay in China each time, which are not always the same thing.

As the post and article below demonstrates, even small mistakes can cause headaches, and the Chinese authorities are quite serious about making sure everyone stays within the law. For tourists and people coming for programs such as ours, this is quite straight forward and shouldn’t be anything to worry about. But for people looking to get more out of China, whether that’s a job, business opportunities or other more complicated considerations, make sure you take the time to know exactly what you.
