Since it’s a tourist visa, you are required to show a copy of the round trip flight ticket to China and a copy of the reservation in one or more Chinese hotels indicating the entire duration of your stay that contains the names of all persons who intend to apply for a visa and stay in the hotel. If you are planning to stay with a friend or family, you will not have to book a hotel. Nevertheless, your friend or relative will have to send you an invitation letter.

The most common tourist visa is the single-entry visa (it is not allowed to leave and re-enter China with the same visa) and it lasts 30 days. It is also possible to apply for a double entry tourist visa and a multiple entry tourist visa. However, the double or multiple entry visa is only issued in very rare cases.

If travelling with an organized tour group, you might not have an individual tourist visa in your passport.  Instead, the tour group will be issued a group tour visa bearing all the members’ names. In such situations supply your details to the travel agency beforehand and you will have no further concerns.
