Visa Hunter’s Miscellaneous Tips for China

- How To Open a Bank Account in China.
- Although the requirements and regulations for a visa to China change from time to time, I found the Chinese consulate websites pretty organized with clear visa information.
- There is also a lot of information on the web on getting the various visa types to this country (as it is a popular place to travel!)
- You can NOT apply for a visa for China by mail, FedEx, DHL, UPS, internet, or any other method for the vast majority of Chinese embassies and consulates. In almost all cases, you MUST appear in person. If you can’t go to the consulate in person, use one of the visa agencies I recommend below to take care of your visa for you. As of the time of this writing, the only embassies that offer mail service are the Chinese Embassies in Australia, Canada, Denmark, Micronesia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and the UK.
