REQUIREMENTS FOR OBTAINING A CHINESE VISA
A visa is required to enter China unless you are a citizen of Singapore or Japan with a passport. There are visa procedures on arrival in China but they are subject to change. Therefore, if you are taking this option, it is advisable to consult with the Chinese consulate before you leave. Obtaining a visa is quite simple as the Chinese government encourages businesspeople to visit the Canton Fair.
There are various ways of obtaining a visa:
Without an invitation letter. This option is not available to all nationalities.
By means of an invitation letter from one of the exhibitors attending the fair.
By means of an invitation letter from the Canton Fair itself.
There are specific requirements for each nationality so it is advisable to check with the Chinese consulate. However, the following links provide relevant information:
Before entering the fair, you must register giving your name, company, nationality and passport number. You must carry your passport on you at all times, as required by Chinese law.
HOW TO GET TO THE CANTON FAIR
There are not many international flights into Guangzhou airport. The best way to get there is to fly to Hong Kong which is 120 km away and has one of the largest international airports in Asia. Once there, you can get a train to Guangzhou from Hung Hom station in the Kowloon district. It takes about two hours and costs around US$70 to get to the city of Guangzhou. When you arrive, you can get a taxi to the fair and it is advisable to have the address written down in Chinese if you are not a fluent speaker as most taxi drivers do not speak English.
