What issues should foreigners pay attention to when applying for multiple entry visas?

Many people are still unclear about the validity period and length of stay of their visas. Today, I will share with you the issue of multiple valid entry visas.

What is the validity period of China’s multiple entry visa?

The validity period of different types of visas varies.

For example, a 10-year multiple entry visa means that the visa is valid for 10 years. Holders of multiple round trip visas can make multiple trips during the visa validity period, but there are restrictions on the duration of stay in China each time!
Note: The stay period is generally 60 or 90 days, with a maximum of 180 days. However, the length of stay is also influenced by factors such as the type of visa, the regulations of the issuing authority, and the purpose of foreign activities in China.

What types of multiple entry visas are there?

You need to apply for a visa based on your purpose of coming to China. Generally, you can apply for a multiple entry visa, such as a business visa, visiting visa, tourist visa, or talent visa.

How to apply for a multiple entry visa to China?

If you want to apply for a multiple entry visa to China, there are certain conditions and requirements. Please refer to the official website of the Chinese Embassy in the local area for specific information.

What are the application materials?

Multiple round trip visas to China are generally processed at Chinese embassies and consulates abroad. Due to different types of visas, the specific conditions and application materials may also vary. Specific information can be found on the Chinese Consular Service website

The following are the most common requirements:

  • Original passport.
  • Visa application form and photos: The visa application form must be printed, then printed and signed. You need to attach a photo on the completed visa application form. The photo must be taken recently, in color, passport size, (bald, full face) against a light colored background.
  • Copy of previous Chinese passport or visa (if applicable)
