Necessary travel documents in China

(People's Daily Online)

09:59, June 13, 2012

Passport, valid for at least 3 month after your visit China and necessary visa or permits. The visa should be approved prior to entering China and a permit for Tibet must be obtained 15 days before entering Tibet. If you only plan to travel and stay in Hong Kong you are exempt from applying for a China visa.

Most people only need to apply for a single-entry visa, which is usually valid for 3 months after the issuing date and will permit you to stay in China for a maximum of 30 days.

You need permits to go to Tibet. If you only go to Lhasa, a Tibet permit will be sufficient but, if you want to go further to the "unopened" areas, you also need an Alien's travel permit issued by the PSB of Tibet.

If you are to travel to Tibet, you are required to provide a doctor's certificate stating that you are fit to travel and your blood pressure and heart condition are normal in case that the very high altitude have the possible effects on you.

It is suggested to take your medical record with you in case that you need it in the event of an emergency, and please also take with you your doctor's name, address and phone number, emergency contact name and phone number, and your insurance company's name, address and phone number.

Health Requirements
Immunization against smallpox and cholera is no longer required for entry into the People's Republic of China. While you travel to China with China Odyssey Tours, we always carefully select restaurants and hotels that are clean and safe in order to provide you with a safe and healthy environment. However, we do suggest you have sorts of vaccinations 4 to 6 weeks before your trip as the following, especially if you choose to go and visit those remote and /or rural areas.
Hepatitis A or immune globulin (IG)
Hepatitis B
(We suggest 11 to 12-year-old children who did not receive it as infants have vaccination of Hepatitis B.)
Rabies, if you might have possibility to be exposed to wild or domestic animals.
