Chinese 10 Year Visa
Why apply for a Chinese 10 Year Visa?
The naming of this special policy for Chinese visas is actually a bit deceptive. That doesn't mean you can stay in China for 10 years, it just means your visa is valid for 10 years. Because this is a multiple entry visa, if you plan to visit China more than once in the next 10 years, it can save you a lot of money.
If you plan to visit China more than once in the next decade, a 10-year visa can save you a lot of money.If you often come to China for business, this 10-year travel visa will make you not have to apply for a new visa every time you travel.
In the end, it will save you money. A fee of more than $140 is only paid once, and then you can keep it for 10 years.
What if my passport expires within 10 years?
You're fine. They've considered two solutions that work well.
If your passport has only recently expired, all you have to do is take your expired passport with you and present it with your new one. As long as the information on both passports is the same, they will allow it. In other words, if you get married and your name changes, it doesn't work for you.
After a while, however, you will have to transfer your visa from your old passport to your new one. This will involve sending your passport to the Chinese consulate through a visa agency (such as passport visa express) 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 apply for and get a stay of 60 days per entry (the longest for tourists), but if you need more time, you can make a special request, which is sometimes approved in case of business or family visit visa.
They are likely to ask you to give reasons for this particular request, depending on whether the consulate has extended your stay visa.
Is a Chinese 10 Year Visa expensive?
no The cost of a 10-year visa is exactly the same as that of the previous year. More likely, you'll really save money because you don't have to pay for your visa the next time you come to China.
How to apply for a Chinese 10 Year Visa?
It's simple. When you fill out the visa application form, just check the box with "10 year visa".
Can I Work on a Chinese 10 Year Visa?
Strictly speaking, we can't and shouldn't. If you are caught, you and the company that hired you will be punished.
For those who hold a 10-year Chinese business visa, when I say "work", I mean to come to China and get paid directly by Chinese companies to work in China. You can apply for business visa for your foreign company, but you can't be an employee here.
This is a warning to the tourists who come to China with their work visas. They were told to apply for a tourist visa before all paperwork was done.
Any legitimate business or school should provide you with a work permit. If they ask you to "apply for a visa" on a 10-year visa, get rid of this situation as soon as possible!
