It is actually much easier to get a Chinese visa for the second time than the first. There is a lot of difference. The requirements actually shrink – a lot. You can compare it here when I first applied for a visa. Here is How to get your China Tourist visa in the Philippines for the second time.
We actually hired the services of a travel agency for this visa application like the first time and paid the 1000 processing fee and the 1400 application fee for single entry visa for a total of 2,400 pesos.
The requirements if you have been previously issued a China Tourist visa:
- filled application form, you can find the application form here.
- Passport with at least 6 months validity and one blank page
- Passport size picture with white background (48mm x 33 mm siz)
- photocopy of passport
- Plane tickets
- Hotel voucher
After a week, we got our passports back with our visa.
For first time applicants, there are more requirements and you can check their website below for more information.
