Visa & Customs

In accordance with the Law on Entry and Exit of Aliens and other relevant regulations, the aliens who apply for the Chinese visa shall fulfill the following procedures and provide the pertinent documents.

Driving

Most visitors find they have enough trouble surviving Chinese traffic without actually taking the wheel. It is generally best to just rent a car with a driver.

Car

Beijing is the hub of several expressways heading in all directions and here is a list of the expressways and their destinations.

Train

Beijing has many railway stations. Most trains arrive at the central or West stations.

By Air

Beijing Capital International Airport is located to the northeast of the central districts, 26 km from the city centre.

Bicycle

Once known as a nation of bicycles, China today has a growing number of private car owners. Still, you are guaranteed to see more bikes than anywhere else in your life.

Bus

Beijing's bus system is cheap, convenient and covers the entire city - perfect for locals but, alas, difficult to use if you don't understand Chinese.

Subway

The subway is a good way to quickly get around the city and a traveler can easily figure it out through the station maps and English signs and language.

Taxis

Taxis are the preferred choice for getting around, as they are convenient and are fairly inexpensive for travelers from Western countries.
