10 Year China Visa
After a meeting between China and the United States at the end of 2014, China has provided new fast work visas to recruit talented experts such as top scientists and businessmen to work and live in China. Leaders in technology, entrepreneurs, and scientists from demand are all eligible to apply for new visas. China has set goals for economic and social development, and believes that hiring experts from abroad is the key to achieving this goal. A 10-year Chinese visa has become an option. However, most people do not fully understand the meaning of the 10-year visa. I would like to answer the most frequently asked questions about China's 10-year tourist visa.
Why get a 10-year Chinese visa?
The special policy for Chinese visas is deceptive in its literal sense. This does not mean that you can stay in China for 10 years, only that your visa is valid for 10 years. Because this is a multiple entry visa, if you plan to visit China multiple times in the next decade, you can save a lot of money.
If you travel frequently to China for business, this 10-year travel visa will save you from having to apply for a new visa every time you travel. Finally, it will save you money. If you only need to pay for more than $140 once, you will travel to China many times in 10 years.
What if my passport expires in less than ten years?
You're OK. They've thought about this, and there are two solutions that work. If your passport has just expired, all you have to do is bring the expired passport with your visa and present it with your new passport. As long as all the information on both passports is the same, they will be allowed to use them. In other words, if you get married and your name changes, it won't work for you. Later, you must transfer your visa from the old passport to the new one. This involves sending the passport to the Chinese consulate through a visa agency or in person.
How long can I stay in China every time I enter?
Like most Chinese visas, your stay can be between 30 and 120 days. In most cases, you can ask for a 60 day stay per entry (the maximum for tourists), but if you need more time, you can ask for a special visa, sometimes for business or family visits. It's up to the consulate to decide whether they will grant you a long-term residence visa.
Is 10-year Chinese visa more expensive?
No, The cost of a 10-year visa is exactly the same as the previous one. In fact, you are likely to save money because you will not have to pay for other visa fees the next time you visit China.
What are the requirements after obtaining the visa?
The answer is simple. The only time you need to provide these documents is when you first apply for a visa. After obtaining the visa, you have the right to enter China at any time during the period of validity without any problem.
