Visa might be required upon visiting China. Participants are advised to consult the nearest Chinese Consulate for details.
To apply for visas, participants should firstly complete the On-line Registration. The workshop secretariat will then send a formal invitation letter via fax or airmail (if needed) with which the participants can apply for a visa at the Chinese Consulate. This application should be made preferably at least one month before departure for China.
Alternatively, participants may apply a tourist visa irrespective of whether or not they have registered.
Once in China, the participants are suggested to carry their passports with them at all the time because the passports may be needed to check into hotels, book airline/train tickets and exchange money.
