Visa Application for the Canton Fair
A China visa is required for your Canton Fair trip to China. After you get the invitation card issued by the CIEF (China Import and Export Fair), you can apply for China visa at a Chinese embassy or consulate in your country. If there is no such Chinese representation in your country, you need to apply for China visa at a Chinese embassy or consulate in a neighboring country. See Chinese Embassies Information.You can also find more visa information on our visa application page.
Besides applying at a Chinese embassy or consulate, you can also entrust your visa application to China Travel Service (Hong Kong) Ltd.

Re-Entry Visa and Visa Extension in Guangzhou
During the Canton Fair, visitors who leave Mainland China but still plan to return to Guangzhou need to apply for a re-entry visa. (Note that because Hong Kong and Macau are special administrative regions in China, once visitors get there from mainland China, they are also considered to have exited China.)
If you need to stay longer while in Guangzhou, you need to apply for a visa extension. Do not overstay.
You can apply for a re-entry visa or for a visa extension at the Division of Aliens and Exit-Entry Administration of Guangzhou Municipal Public Security Bureau.
