Tourist L Visa

Tourist "L" Visa

Ideal for short term students, Tourist Visas are available for 30-90 day durations with single, double, or multiple entries. A Tourist Visa is recommended for students on short term programs or late applicants. Students who don’t have time or are unable to apply for an F or X visa, may apply for an L visa or Tourist visa. Once the student has arrived in China, CSA will help the student convert the visa to one that is more suitable to their requirements while in China.

Arriving in China on a Tourist Visa is a common practice for many students studying throughout China. It is the quickest, easiest, and most cost efficient option for short term students. An Individual traveler can apply for a tourist visa at any Chinese embassy or consulate. China has embassies and consulates in nearly every country in various cities. You can either get an application form in person at the embassy/consulate or download one by visiting the website of the Chinese embassy in your country.

After fully and accurately completing your application, submit it to the nearest Chinese consulate or embassy, either in person or by mail. A standard 30 day, single-entry visa can be issued from most Chinese embassies and consulates in three to five working days. For an additional fee, rush processing with same-day or next-day service is also available at most embassies/consulates.

* Tourist "L" Visas can be extended by one month once in China. This involves approx 20,000RMB to be held in your personal Chinese bank account for approx 5 working days.
