China Tourist Visa


Planning a sightseeing trip or looking to visit family and friends in China? If so, you will need a China tourist visa, also known as an L visa. With this travel document, you can stay for up to 30 days and travel to most areas. This visa is a stamp on your passport and is valid for three months from the date of issue. It must be presented to an immigration officer when entering the country.


This travel visa cannot be obtained online. Applicants must present themselves in person to a Chinese embassy or a Chinese consulate. This can mean the process is time-consuming. However, Chinesevisaapplication.com.au is an authorised seller of Chinese visas and we can apply at embassies and consulates on your behalf. This professional and reliable service means you do not have to waste your time standing in line. Just place your order 100% online and follow our simple step-by-step instructions.


If you are travelling in a group of two or more people, you may not need an individual visa as your name can be added to a group visa. Find out more at our Group E-Visa page.



How Do I Apply for a Chinese Tourist Visa?


We make the application process as easy as A, B, C and will get your visa to you quickly. Simply fill in our online form, send us your documents, and we will do the rest. The processing time for your visa is 4 days. Once it is issued by the Government of China, we will ship it to you via either DHL or Fedex with plenty of time before your scheduled departure date.


Note that if you are an Australian citizen travelling only to Hong Kong or Taiwan territories, you do not have to apply for a tourist visa to China.



What Documents Will I Need for My Visa?


  • Your passport, which must have a minimum of sixth months validity and at least two empty pages.
  • A photocopy of the passport's data page.
  • A completed China visa application form with every column filled in. It asks for such information as your home address, names of significant family members and education background. Where some columns aren't relevant use N/A for not applicable. Any mistakes in filling out the form could result in a delay in the processing of your Chinese tourist visa.
  • One passport-type photo with a white background attached. This will be attached to your application form.
  • A letter with your entire travel itinerary, including proof of your airline tickets and hotel reservations.
  • If you have been invited to the country, you can submit a China tourist visa invitation letter. This will detail the full name, gender and date of birth of the applicant, arrival and departure date, places to be visited and information about the person who issued the invitation. This should include their official stamp, address, contact number and signature of their legal representative.
  • Other supporting documents may be required. If Australia is not your country of citizenship, you will need proof of your residency status.
  • Some China tourist visa applicants may need to include details of their employer and bank statements going back several months.
