Visa Information

The visa invitation letter request process is now open for World Routes 2018. 

All international visitors to China will require a visa, excluding those citizens of Japan, Singapore and Brunei, holding ordinary passports.

Visas must be obtained prior to arrival. For details of entry requirements to China and for an application form you should contact the nearest Chinese Embassy or Consulate in good time before your departure.

A 30-day single-entry visa can be issued from most Chinese Embassies within three to five working days. We urge you to apply for your visa at the earliest convenience.

Visa Invitation Letter 

In addition to the visa application form, relevant fees and photos may be required; embassies may also require a letter of invitation from the inviting company. Should you require such document from our host Guangdong Airport Authority, please complete the electronic request form in full ensuring accuracy throughout.

Most embassies and consulates accept a scanned copy of the invitation letter and therefore Guangdong Airport Authority will issue the letters to applicants via email as an attachment. If your embassy or consulate does not accept an electronic copy, please select an alternative format in the ‘Format Options’ section of the request form.

IMPORTANT: You must check with your VISA issuing authority if the invitation letter needs a company stamp and signature


Please note – invitation letters will only be issued to individuals registered to attend the event.
