2. Get a visa
Once your passport has been confirmed in order, you’ll want to get a visa. If your travel agent is preplanning your trip to China, they may be able to help assist you in acquiring a visa. To acquire the visa on your own, you’ll need to get in touch with the Chinese Embassies and Consulates. You will then be asked to fill out an application, which will ask information such as why you are visiting the country and what cities and areas you will be visiting. You’ll need to send your passport in with the application, as well. Depending on what country you are visiting from, the cost can vary between $20 and $60. Generally, the visa process can take less than a week, but in order to guarantee your visa application has been taken care of, you’ll want to take care of this item first in preplanning your trip to China.
