How long can I stay in China with a Chinese visa?

The time you could actually stay in China, or “duration of stay after entry” is usually 60 days. However, a maximum of 90-day duration of stay is available upon request. To get a 90-day duration of stay, you must write down such number on the Chinese Visa Application Form. If you did not specify the number of days on this form, you will be allowed 60 days. Please be reminded that the Chinese Consulate has the final say on the number of days you receive for your visa regardless of your request.

Do I have to send you my passport?

Is it safe to send a passport? Yes. You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Chinese visa is pasted on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa request cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport as a travel document, we strongly suggest that you send your application in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx, UPS, DHL, Express Mail or Certified Mail.

I need Chinese visa for two people.Can I send them in one package? How should I calculate the fees?

When you send in application for more than one person, you could send all applications in one package. If all passports are to be returned to the same address, you need to pay only one FedEx return shipping charge. Chinese Consulate fees and our service fees, however, are on a per person basis.
