The agency recommended by my cruise company is: CIBT, PO Box 61745, London SW1V 1UT. Visas for China are not cheap but to visit such a fascinating country it will be money well spent. Do remember that Hong Kong is now an integral part of the Peoples' Republic of China and some officials there are less than pleased when people forget this. I hope you have a great visit .

Can't help with China but if your British with a UK passport you don't need a Visa for Hong Kong...Wilba.

Look up your nearest chinese consulate...I know that you can go direct in Manchester...agencies seem to charge twice as much to acquire your visa for you.

For Hong Kong, U K passport-holders don't need a visa. For the rest of China, before you fork out £30 or more per visa, check with P & O - if you intend only to go ashore on their excursions, their excursion price may well include a "group" visa, saving you both money and form-filling. Hong Kong is amazing, and the £30 you save will pay for about 100 trips across the harbour on the Star Ferry and 75 journeys on the rickety old trams! Chris.
