I want to apply for a tourist double entry visa for China. I intend to stay for around 15 days in China. Then leave China for around 1 month (will be in Taiwan) and then back to China for another 15 days.

Counts the 'Maximum duration of longest stay (days)' on the visa website for each stay or do I need to calculate both entries together? I thought I will put these values in the form, but not sure if that is correct.

Here, the form is asking for the duration of your longest stay. Since both of your stays are for 15 days, you should put 15 in this field.

As the other answer mentions, there is no problem in asking for 30 days but 15 days is the correct entry.

It's the maximum duration of anyone's stay. In your case, that is 15 days, so requesting 30 days is fine. You could also ask for 15, but if your stay got extended or was off by a day you would be overstaying your visa.

Usually the stay they grant is 30 days on a double-entry visa.

  • I'm not sure this is right, surely it is 15 days since that is the length of the longest stay. – user89966 Nov 1 at 19:59
  • @Daniil There’s no problem asking for 30 when your expected itinerary only calls for 15. – Spehro Pefhany Nov 1 at 20:01
  • The OP asks Counts the 'Maximum duration of longest stay (days)' on the visa website for each stay or do I need to calculate both entries together?. Saying requesting x is fine doesn't answer the question. I'm close to giving this a -1 – user89966 Nov 1 at 20:02

  • Usually the stay they grant is 30 days on a double-entry visa. Do you have a source for this? – user89966 Nov 1 at 20:05
