Do Us Citizens Need A Visa For China
All Us Citizens entering China for tourism or business purposes require a specified type of visa. The most popular types of Chinese visas are 10-year tourist visas and group e-visa. This type of visa is popular among U.S. citizens because one does not have to go to the Chinese Embassy to be issued.
Types of Visa For China
China issues various types of visas depending on the purpose of travel. These include "F visas" for visiting relatives in China, "B visas" for business travelers, "W visas" for laborers, "X visas" for students and "C visas" for crews of international trains, aircraft, and ships. Visitors only need to apply for the "T Visa", which applies to all tourism-related activities. The single entry visa allows visitors to enter the country once during the visa's validity period. A two-entry visa allows visitors to enter the country twice during the visa's validity period. Multi-entry visas allow visitors to enter and exit freely for the duration of the visa. Each visa is valid for 6 or 12 months. The U.S. Department of State cautions that it is difficult to change the terms of a visa once you enter China, so do not apply for a tourist visa if you plan to do something other than general sightseeing or visiting family.
What is a 10-year tourist visa for China?
People with a U.S. passport who are also living in the United States can now apply for a 10-year tourist visa. This visa allows you to enter and exit China at will for a period of 10 years. The first thing you need to do before submitting your documents at the local embassy or consulate is to fill out the China Visa Application Form.
How long is a 10-year tourist visa valid for China?
The Chinese tourist visa is valid for 10 years after issuance. In addition, the visa is a multiple-entry visa with a maximum stay of 60 days per entry.
What is the China Group E-Visa?
The China Group E-Visa is a tourist visa that allows a group of at least 2 members to enter and exit China together. The Chinese group e-visa is posted on the passport as a separate document, not like the Chinese tourist visa.

China Visa Fees
The cost of a Chinese visa varies greatly depending on your nationality, the number of entries required, the country of application, whether you need express services, etc. In general, the cost is $140 for U.S. citizens and $30 to $90 for citizens of other countries. It is generally paid at the time of visa collection, but in some places it must be paid at the time of application.
In most countries, embassies and consulates charge a fee based on the number of entries for which a visa is issued. Typically, the more times you enter the country, the more expensive the visa will be. And for some countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, etc., citizens are required to pay a fixed fee regardless of the number of entries requested. Also, the courier service requires a markup.
