Entry and Border information for entering China
- We advise you exercise normal safety precautions in China. You should exercise common sense and look out for suspicious behavior, as you would in your own country. Monitor the media and other sources for changes to local travelling conditions.
- Penalties for serious drug offences in China are severe and include the death penalty. Foreigners have been executed for drug offences in China. The use or possession of even small quantities of ‘soft’ drugs is illegal and laws are strictly enforced.
- A visa is required for all travelers to China.
- Organize comprehensive travel insurance and check what circumstances and activities are not covered by your policy
Before You Go: To enter China, travelers must obtain a visa prior to arrival, and must have a passport with at least six months’ validity remaining. If you do not have a valid passport and the appropriate Chinese visa, you will not be allowed to enter China, you will be fined, and you will be subject to immediate deportation.
Leaving China: You must have a valid visa not only to enter China, and you must leave China before the expiration of the listed duration of stay. If your visa has expired or if you lose your passport while you are in China, immigration authorities will not permit you to exit the country until you receive a new visa. The time it takes to get a visa replaced varies depending on where you are in China; however, in Beijing, it can take at least one week from the date of application, regardless of your previously-scheduled departure date. You should not expect the Chinese visa renewal or replacement process to be expedited to meet your travel schedule.
If you overstay in China, you may be detained for various amounts of time, as well as fined up to RMB 10,000. You must apply for a visa extension from the Entry/Exit Bureau before attempting to leave the country.
