I am a Filipino passport holder working in Singapore. I am planning to go to Beijing this August, and I'd just like to know how difficult it is to get a Chinese tourist visa if you are traveling alone (before I buy my ticket).


Chinese tourist visas are fairly easy to obtain, although the Chinese visa agency in Singapore does state that reservations for flights and hotels are required for L visas. So I would suggest booking refundable flights and a hotel, then applying. Also, don't apply too early, because the validity of Chinese visas starts the moment they are issued, not on entry to the country.

  • Chinese visa requirements are generally quite lax. Thought the website suggests reservations for flight and hotels, in practice these are usually not required. – Rincewind42 Apr 22 '12 at 15:11
