L - Tour Visa

L - China Tour Visa

China Tourist Visa (L Visa) is issued to those who intend to come to China as a tourist. Usually, for the tourist proposal, Chinese Embassy will give you 30-90 days stay with 1 or 2 entries.

Now China mainland don't issue any L(tour) visa or any extension, so if you want to come to China for tour, you need to apply the L visa from China Embassy/Consulate out of China and come,

most of the time, you have to leave before the L visa expires. However, you can go to Hongkong to apply a new L visa and come back if you never apply L visa in HK before
