Tourist Visa China
For those who come to China for tourism, sightseeing or visiting friends, a Tourist Visa China shall be issued. For U.S. passport holders, the period of validity for each entry is usually 60 days, and for multiple entries, the maximum period of validity is 10 years; for non-U.S. passport holders, the period of validity for each entry is usually 60 days, but only for one or two entries, the period of validity is 3 or 6 months. The 10-year visa is not guaranteed. The Chinese consulate may, at its discretion, issue you a visa with entry restrictions, a shorter period of time and a shorter period of validity.
To apply for a Tourist Visa China, please prepare the following materials:
Actual passport with copy of name page
Please submit your actual passport. Visas will be issued on passports.

If you have a valid Chinese visa on another passport, you need to submit it with the new passport when you apply for a new visa.
