It is the responsibility of delegates to ensure that the correct visa to enter China and attend the convention has been organised in advance, if required.
The convention organisers will provide assistance (such as invitation letters) and suggestions during the process however please understand we are not associated with any visa office or agency and have no control of the outcome of the visa application process.
Applicants should initiate the process as early in their travel plans as possible, adequate time (at least a month) should be allowed for processing visa applications.
It is likely you will need a tourist visa to attend the event, and for this you do not need an invitation letter. This type of visa is issued to foreigners for sightseeing and visiting relatives or any other personal affairs, and the Chinese Embassy will likely just need hotel and air ticket reservation information.
If you receive explicit instructions or orders to apply for a non-tourist visa, you will need an invitation letter from us, so please inform us asap and we will provide one.
You can email Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
