The Beginner’s Guide to Filling and Filing Chinese Travel Documents

Chinese Visa Application

Applying for a visa before traveling to China is the first step foreigners take when planning their visit. A visa is a travel document issued by an authorized government agency for foreigners intending to enter, exit and move throughout the country. To obtain a visa you should complete the Visa Application Form of the People’s Republic of China (form V.2011.A).

This form contains information about your residence, family status, time and purpose of your trip as well as a place of temporary residence in the territory of China. The data submitted in your form will be collected by representatives of the People’s Republic of China and reviewed when considering your application for entry.

PDFfiller has made it easy to fill out form V.2011.A from any internet connected device. Wherever you are, you can print out your application form at the nearest printer without any hassle.

How Do I Get a Chinese Visa?

After you‘ve chosen the type of Chinese visa you’ll be applying for, you can use PDFfiller to quickly and easily fill and print out the Chinese Embassy Visa Form and forward it to a Chinese Embassy or Consulate General based on your state of residence. Note that you’ll be required to pay a service fee depending on your visa type once your application is processed and approved.

Do I Need to Send any Additional Documents with my Application Form?

If you want to work or study in China or if you’re applying for a Chinese visa outside your country of residence, you should submit the Supplementary Visa Application Form (Form V.2011.B) as an attachment to Form V.2011.A.
