Visa information

Passports, valid for at least six months from the entry into China, and entry visas are required to visit China. Participants are advised to consult the nearest Chinese diplomatic mission for details.

A single entry visa is valid for three months, and can be extended for an additional month at the Foreigners Section of the Local Public Security Bureau if necessary.

Once in China, the participants are advised to carry their passports on them at all times because the passports may be needed to check into hotels, book airline tickets, and change money.

To apply for visas, participants should first fill out the on-line registration with the appropriate registration fee, then can download an official invitation letter, with which the participants can apply for a visa at the Chinese diplomatic mission indicated in the invitation.

This application should be made preferably at least one month before departure for China.

If participants have any difficulties in obtaining their visa, they should contact the Organization committee.


In China, only RMB is used. However, exchange centers can be found at airports, most hotels and large shopping centers. When exchanging money, please keep your receipt by which can change any remaining RMB back to foreign currency when leaving China. Visa, Master, American Express, Diners Club, and JCB are accepted in many department stores and hotels. But it might be difficult to draw cash with credit cards. The Bank of China and most hotels can cash travelers cheques issued by any foreign bank or financial institution. Participants will need to show a passport and pay a 3 percent commission. Travelers cheques signed over to a third party cannot be cashed in China, but can be presented for collection through the Bank of China.
