FPT'10 >> Visa Information


All visitors to China, must apply for a visa before entering the People's Republic of China.
  • Attendees can apply for a Chinese visa through a travel agency or directly at the nearest Chinese embassy;
  • If attendees apply for a tourist visa, which will be the best visa type to obtain as long the registrant does not have plans for conducting extensive business other than attending the conference and sightseeing, an official visa invitation letter will not be needed from FPT 2010.
  • Once you have paid for the FPT 2010 conference registration, we will issue an official invitation letter for the visa application;
  • The invitation letter will state the conference name, the duration of the conference, your detailed correspondence that will be extracted from your enquiry;
  • Please contact fpt2010@mail.cs.tsinghua.edu.cn for further information. Please note that due to the large expected number of enquires, we can only reply to visa application queries AFTER you have registered for FPT. General visa information should be obtained from your local China Consulate.
