Looking for a visa for China?

South African passport holders can now apply for a Chinese visa online. It does not matter where you are in South Africa we will be able to help you obtain your visa to China. A visa is required for South Africans travelling to China and needs to be obtained prior to arrival.

How does it work?

Foreign nationals visiting or living in China for more than 180 days will need a residence permit. Visitor or tourist visas will only be extended once, by a maximum of 30 days, from the permitted 30-day length of stay.

Easy Visas will assist clients by checking applications, scheduling appointments, paying the visa costs and meeting the client at the application centre to assist with the processing of the application. Once the application is finalised we will collect and return it to the client.

Travel Insurance

It is recommended to buy travel insurance for any unforeseen situations whilst travelling in China.

Travel insurance can be taken out with Regent travel Insurance or Travel Insurance Consultants (TIC). (Alternatively you can compare South African travel insurance.)

Regent has a policy called ‘Africa, Asia & Middle East Cover’ which is the most cost effective policy for travellers to this region.
