Visa Application

It is your responsibility to ensure you have a valid passport and any necessary visas for your tour. As a general rule you will need a passport with at least six months validity following the end of your trip.

The visa requirements for your trip may vary depending on where you are going, and where you are from. It is important that you check which visas you will need, and apply for each of the necessary visas whilst in your home country.

Please bear in mind that some tours may spend time in more than one country.

Nexus Holidays would like to help you with visa application or you can apply by yourself!

How many days can I stay in China? How many entries do I need?

  1. If you have been issued a Two years multiple Chinese Visa , you can maximum stay up to 90 days for each entry.
  2. The number of entries of a visa refers to the number of times the visa holder is permitted to enter China within the visa’s validity. Validity of a visa refers to the period that the visa holder is allowed to enter China. Unless otherwise specified, a visa holder may enter China at any time prior to expiry of validity (right up to midnight Beijing Time on the final day of validity), so long as the entries granted on the visa have not been used up. A visa becomes effective from the date of issuance. The visa automatically becomes invalid once its period of validity expires regardless of whether its entries are used up or not.
