Visa to China

Please note that purchasing a ticket for the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 does not entitle the ticket-holder to visa-free travel to China. Standard visa regulations apply and citizens of most countries will continue to need a Visa for entry to China.

We invite you to contact the Chinese diplomatic mission closest to you or visit their official website to obtain all information in relation to applying for and obtaining a visa. Note that the procedure may require a few days and that a passport with a validity of minimum six (6) months from the date of entry to China will be required, so act timely.

For short stays in China, you may also wish to inquire about 24/72/144 hours visa-free transit schemes in the major Chinese cities.
