Visa Information

Apply for visa


Attendees from most countries will be required to obtain a visa to enter the People's Republic of China. ITTW2018 participants who are required to apply for visa to enter China can apply for a Chinese visa at the nearest Chinese Embassy or Consulate in your countries. For some visa applications, the process could take some time to complete depending on your country of origin and certain visa restrictions so we suggest that you start the visa application as soon as possible.


We are only able to issue the required documents for the visa application to participants who have completed their registration and fully paid the registration fee. Note that the registration fee cannot be refunded even if the visa is not issued.

We will respond to the requests on a first-come, first-served basis.


Please contact us again if you do not receive any response from us within 3 working days.

The ITTW2018 Visa Service for Visa applications will begin June 15 2018 when registration starts.
