IMPORTANT NOTE on the Visa Invitation Letter: Attendees from certain countries are required to obtain a China visa when attending SSLCHINA & IFWS 2019. Some embassies may need to verify that registration fees have been paid in full and may require applicants to appear in person for an interview, causing delay in the application process. Applicants affected by these procedures are informed that additional screening is needed. Therefore, attendees should apply for a visa no later than three months prior to the conference.

China Entry Visa Policies
Visitors to the People's Republic of China must obtain a visa from one of the Chinese diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. The two Special Administrative Regions - Hong Kong and Macau - maintain their own independent border control policy and thus have their own visa requirements.
The government of the People's Republic of China allows holders of normal passports issued by some countries to travel to China for tourism or business purposes for up to 15, 30 or 90 days without having to obtain a visa. Visitors of other nationalities, as well as residents of Hong Kong and Macau, are required to obtain either a visa or a permit prior to arrival, depending on their nationality.
The government of the People's Republic of China allows holders of passports issued by Japan and Singapore to travel to China for tourism or business purposes for up to 15 days without having to obtain a visa.
