which covers you for all
Think about how you plan
to organize your journey
when deciding between
single-entry, double-entry or
Single-entry visas let you
enter China once during
the period of the visa's validity. Double-entry visas allow two entries into country. Multiple-entry means you can come and go as often as you want while your visa is valid. Each type is valid for either
six or 12 months. The U.S. State Department cautions that it is very difficult to change your visa once you arrive in China, so if you plan to do anything that falls outside general sightseeing or visiting family, you
should not apply for a tourist visa..
