  • Pay Visa Fee: Pay the applicable visa fee as required by the Chinese embassy or consulate. The fee amount can vary based on the type of visa you are applying for.
  • Travel Itinerary: A detailed travel plan outlining the places you intend to visit, activities you plan to engage in, and the duration of your stay.
  • Invitation Letter (if applicable): If you’re visiting friends or relatives in China, you might need an invitation letter from your host, along with a copy of their ID or residence permit.
  • Health Declaration Form: Some visa types, including tourist visas, may require a health declaration form indicating your health status and any recent travel history.

What is the average turnaround time for China visas?

It is important to note that the specific requirements can vary based on the type of visa and any changes in regulations.
The average turnaround time for a China visa can vary based on several factors, including the type of visa you are applying for, the specific Chinese consulate or embassy you are applying through, the time of year, and the volume of visa applications being processed.

As a general guideline, the processing time for a China visa is typically around 4 to 10 working days. However, this is an estimate and actual processing times can be shorter or longer depending on the circumstances.

During peak travel seasons or if your application requires additional scrutiny, the processing time might extend beyond the estimated period. On the other hand, if you have all the required documents in order and your application is straightforward, you might receive your visa sooner.
