Chinese Group Visa (One Visa for All)

                                                            *Best way to avoid fingerprint requirement*

As an organiser, are you surprised at paying the SAME visa fees for each traveller of your group, as for an individual visa fee? Are you concerned about the fingerprint requirement for Chinese tourist visa application? Is it inconvenient for all members of your group to individually apply for Chinese visas for travelling to London, Manchester or Edinburgh in person? Are you worried that an individual Chinese visa application of one or more members in your group could be rejected due to small errors in the online visa form or insufficient documents? If you have answered YES to any of these questions, then a group visa for China might be at your best option.
