A Chinese visa is a permit issued by Chinese visa authorities to non-Chinese citizens for entry into, exit from and transit through China. American citizens and citizens of most countries are required to obtain a visa before entering China. There are eight categories of ordinary visas, which are respectively marked with the letters C, D, F, G, J-1, J-2, L, X and Z.
The most popular type of visa is the L-Visa. It is also known as a tourist visa. It is issued to those who visit China for tourist purposes, family visit or other personal matters.
For American passport holders, Great Wall Adventure Club can assist you with the procedure to ensure you will have the permit to visit China by refering your application to a visa agent in Dallas, Texas. The agent's service is not restricted to which state you are living in. Citizens from any state can apply through this agent.
