Visa Application (07-16-2012)
Conference participants may need a Chinese visa to enter China. Participants can apply for a visa at the Chinese embassy or consulate in the region in which they live. For most attendees, it is easier to apply for a Tourist ("L") visa; an invitation letter is not required for obtaining a Tourist visa. If some participants need another type of visa that does require an invitation letter, the 2012 International Joint Conference on e-Business (ICEBE 2012 & CEC 2012) organization committee will be glad to help.

If you need an invitation letter, please send e-mail to , together with your registration, and in the case of being an author, your accepted paper ID.

To avoid uncertainty, participants will be advised to apply for a visa as early as possible. It is recommended that they apply for a Chinese visa at least 1 month in advance.

For more information regarding the requirements and procedure for obtaining a visa to China, please see More detailed visa application procedure:
