Visas and passports
Make sure everyone that is traveling has a passport and visa (if applicable). Keep in mind that if you're entering China twice, you may need a double entry visa depending on whether or not you're in the country longer than 24 hrs. Do check the embassy rules as they are constantly updated.
If a visa is required, obtain it from the appropriate foreign consular representative before proceeding abroad. Allow sufficient time for processing your visa application especially if you are applying by mail. Most foreign consular representatives are located in principal cities and in many instances a traveler may be required to obtain visas from the consular office in the area of his/her residence.
