Through the Chinese Embassy in Spain we are advised that the procedure to apply for a visa to travel to China has been modified for a few days.

To request a tourist visa (L) in addition to the passport, a completed form to apply for a visa and a passport photo you must also submit:

  • A copy of a hotel reservation made in China
  • A copy of the round trip plane ticket.

On the other hand, all those who visit a relative in China must also contribute:

  • A kinship certificate
  • A copy of the round trip plane ticket.

On the page of the Embassy there is no explanation that justifies such decisions. I am truly surprised that the Chinese government makes it difficult for tourists to process their visa. Tourism is being one of the fastest growing economic engines in the country and it is strange to see that, just a few months before the Olympic Games begin, they begin to put so many problems to visit the country.

I remember that in any region of this huge country, backpackers do not usually pay much attention and, in general, very few make the effort to learn English and devote themselves to live tourism. It is a radical contrast with neighboring countries such as Vietnam or Nepal where tourism is daily rice and tea for many of its inhabitants.

They are a proud breed and this seems a way to prove it.

If you plan to travel to China in the coming months or, on the other hand, you know someone who is preparing your trip to the Asian giant, you better inform them about it!
