Group Visa

What is a China Group E-Visa?


If you are visiting China for tourist purposes and want to avoid the lengthy process of obtaining an individual tourist visa, you can apply for a China Group E-Visa. This process does not require you to visit one of the application centres in Manchester, London or Edinburgh and you do not need to send in your passport – just a single-page application form.

The Group visa is issued in a Tourist Group Form rather than an individual Chinese visa affixed to an original passport, so NO ORIGINAL PASSPORT is required for Chinese Group visa application and fingerprints are NOT required*.
