An official invitation letter can be issued by the Department for Business & Trade to those who require visas. Please request the letter of invitation template from the DBT, via English UK, as early as possible.

Please note that from 1 November 2018 Chinese Visa Application Centres capture all applicants’ fingerprints on behalf of the Chinese Embassy and Consulates in the UK in accordance with Chinese laws and regulations. Applicants applying for Chinese visas are required to submit the application in person to have their fingerprints and photo taken at the Visa Application Centres. Visitors to China whose fingerprints and photo do not match may be denied entry.

Further information about visas to mainland China and how to apply can be found on –

COVID-19 entry requirements

From 29 April 2023, China has changed its COVID-19 entry requirements for all travellers entering the country. You must undertake a lateral flow/rapid antigen test 48 hours before boarding your flight. You must declare your negative test result by filling in the Health Declaration Form via the China Customs website, or through the China Customs App or WeChat account. Airline officials will no longer check test results. However, upon arrival in China your test result may be checked by officials at customs.
