There might be some agency here in Patts who could do, not sure as went to BKK and did it myself.

The visa office opens at 9:00 till 11:30 but best to get there about 8 unless you want to sit waiting for a long time, I was there at 8:20 and was still number 29 in the queue. If it's a tourist visa your after you need a photocopy of your passport, immigration stamp into Thailand, employment letter from company you work for, two way ticket in & out of China, hotel reservation and if you have had a visa before then a photocopy of that too.

They also do not do same day anymore, next day pick up is the fastest !!!!!

China is very clear about applying for a visa only from your home country.  Despite this, an agency is often able to flout some of the rules but be prepared to pay.  The fees for Americans are the highest.

I have used the following company. http://www.visarite.com/  They did a great job. I also would also suggest getting your china Visa while in the States.

Yes, I agree with Crash and metter2009. You must get your Chinese Visa first and I recommend using a service like above.

 

This is the one I used and it was flawless:  My China Visa

Thanks for the info,I was going to do it from the states but I hadn't purchased a ticket as I wanted to just buy a ticket while there in Thailand.If it would be to complicated then I guess I'll go ahead and just get visa from here

I highly recommend you do not buy a ticket to go to China.  You can go free.  How?  

 

  • www.Skyscanner.com
  • Chose a flight with an airlines that has a layover in China
    • China Southern (Guangzhou, China)
    • Air China (Beijing, China)
    • China Eastern (Shanghai, China)
  • Go directly to the website offering the best deal (because skyscanner does not have this option).
  • Book flight and include a third leg of trip

For example, when I booked my trips from LAX to BKK I noticed the planes made layovers in the above cities.  I decided to apply for my Chinese Visa and when it was approved I booked my flight from LAX to Guangzhou (visited for 5 days), then took the remaining portion of my flight at no increased cost.  Now, there could be a minor change in cost in flights due to days and times, but it would be less than $10-$50.

Hong Kong is one of the easiest places to get a Chinese visa outside of your home country. There are many reports online of HK agencies hardly requiring any of the typical documentation (flight tickets, hotel bookings, complete itinerary, etc). It is a good option for someone who is leaving their home country but travelling other places before entering China.

 

If you have the option of applying at home though it is best to do that.

I went to China last year and got my visa by going straight to the Chinese Embassy in Los Angeles. It cost $140 and took 3 days to process. good for multiple visits in a one year period. All they required was the Air ticket reservations in and out. I had hotel reservations also, but they didn't need them. For hotel reservations you can always cancel them after you get your visa and stay and travel where you want.

Also of course, a passport, photos and the required forms filled out.  I don't know if there are any chinese embassy's close to you in Texas though. In which case you would half to use a visa service. 

 

I agree with the others here and would get my visa in the states, especially if you know for sure what your travel dates are. Why take a chance and have to waste valuable vacation time in Thailand getting a visa in Bangkok.

 

By the way I'm planning on going to Viet Nam this October. What was the process in Pattaya to get a visa there??. Just in case I don't get one in the USA before I leave for SEA.

It has been a few months since I have gotten a China visa and unless things have changed, CTS (China Travel Service) has a booth right in the HK airport.  You can get a tourist (not sure about business) visa (six month multiple, 30 day max each entry) the same day.  They tell you to pick up the visa at 19:00, but I have went an hour or two early and they always had my passport/visa ready for me.  If you arrive on an early flight, you don't even need to spend a night in Hong Kong.  Same day is not cheap.  It was about 450 USD.

Gaee lao. mai law doi. Mai ben rai, mee daang!

When I went to Viet Nam,I went to the Vietnamese embassy and filled out the required form,its pretty simple,I didn't have hotel registration and told them I was going to Ho Chi Min.I paid the money and picked up my passport that afternoon. could have done it in Pattaya but would have had to wait three days

I know it is not of help to the OP but you can also get a 72 hour transit visa on arrival at the main transit cities in China.

I don't think that is possible. It is a transit visa and you must show an onward ticket.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
