China Visa - Single Entry, Double Entry or Multiple Entry?
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China offers three entry options for tourists, crew members and those who wish to do business in China
When applying for a travel visa, you can choose between single entry,
double entry and multiple entries. Let's take a look at each one.
Single Entry Visa
If permission is granted by an immigration
official at the port of entry, travelers who possess a single entry
China visa will be allowed to enter the country one time and one time
only. If this is the type of visa you have and you depart from China,
you may not enter again without obtaining another visa.
Double Entry Visa
A double entry visa allows you to enter China upon official
authorization up to two times during the same trip. This type of visa
is usually requested by a traveler who plans to leave China to visit or
do business in another nearby country and then go back to China before
returning to his or her country of origin.
Once your single or double entry visa is granted, you have three
months to enter China. You can stay up to a total of 30 days within the
Multiple Entry Visa
A multiple entry China visa is usually requested when you plan to make
more than one trip to China within a given period of time. You can
request a multiple entry visa with validity of up to 10 years, in which
case the passport must have remaining validity of 12 months. The fee is
the same independent of the duration of the visa.
It is not necessary to obtain a Chinese visa if you have a stop in
China that is less than 24 hours. If for some reason you must stay
longer than 24 hours before catching your connecting flight, you will
need to acquire a transit visa. A transit visa allows you to remain in
China for up to 19 days.
