Another CSer in Ulaanbaator, needing a letter of invitation
Posted February 5th, 2013 - 10:39 am by from Sokndal, Norway (Permalink)
Hello! I have seen multiple people requesting these, some with more luck than others. When applying for a visa in UB you need:
"Invitation letter (issued by Chinese citizens, foreigners with residence permit in China, travel agents or host company) is needed.
This invitation letter should include following infomation:
(1).your inviter's name, address, phone number, signature(must be hand-wriiten,no computer-typed,could be photocopy)
(2).The copy of inviter's Chinese ID or residence permit is supposed to be attached to this letter."

A good form that can be used is this one: http://www.mychinavisa.com/pdf/Invitation_Letter_for_Tourist_Visa.pdf

My problem is that I do not know anyone from China. I tried contacting a hostel in Bejing to see if they could help me out, but no answer yet.

Hope that there is someone that can help or know where I can go. Maybe this issue should be adressed in the group header?

Hi Rudi

This group is very small and experience has shown that invitations are not very easy to get in here. I would suggest that you join the groups of some towns that you plan to visit and ask there. Or in any other special interest groups in China.

I will ask a couple of friends but with CNY coming up they are rather busy,

Good luck
