Necessary Materials to Apply for Chinese Visa
Conference participants may need a
Chinese visa to enter China. Specifically, those who are
not Chinese citizens, except passport holders from
Singapore, Brunei, and Japan, need a Chinese visa.
Participants can apply for a visa at the Chinese embassy
or consulate in the region in which they live. To avoid
uncertainty, participants will be advised to apply for a
visa as early as possible. It is recommended that they
apply for a Chinese visa at least 1 month in advance.
The following are the documents for Chinese visa
»A passport which is valid for at
least six months following the date of submission, with
an entire blank page available for the visa;
»One Visa Application Form of the
People's Republic of China, which is filled clearly with

application, deemed as necessary by the visa officer.

to arrange their travel to China and obtain a tourist

with the Conference Secretariat.
