I Will Be Attending Some Meetings In China. Should I Apply For A China Business Visa Or Tourist Visa?

If the main purpose of your visit/trip is business, trade affairs, or commercial discussions then you must apply for a business visa to China. However, you are allowed to tour the country with a business visa. You do not need a separate Chinese tourist visa to see China’s cultural heritage.

In addition to all required paperwork, you should request a business invite from the inviting company in China.
