No visa is required for ordinary passport holders from Singapore, Brunei and Japan to visit China for up to 15 days for business, sightseeing, visiting relatives and friends or transit. For travelers from most other countries, a visa is required for entering China. A visa can be obtained from a local Consulate of China without difficulty of document preparation and long waiting. For most attendees, it is easier to apply for a Tourist ("L") visa; an invitation letter is not required for obtaining a Tourist visa.
