Chinese Visa for Motorbike-overlanders

Post by murg »

Hi there,

our Intention: Riding Kirgistan - China - Pakistan with our own Motorbikes. German license & passport
Tour Guide / Agency: All set and done (Tibetmoto)

My Question: We are applying for visa next week. Tour Guide says that there is no way to get a visa for self drive Overland Tourists so we have to create a 'virtual' Trip:

We booked flight tickets (we will cancel them as soon as Visa ist granted)
Tour Guide sent us a Hotel Reservation List / LOI / that fits our flight Trip.

Visa agent says He needs a self written itinerary including a map

I just need some reassurance if this is the way it is done?
There is the section at the application that all Data provided must be true.
... don't want to be rejected at the Border.
Tour Guide says both means of transportation & port of entry will Not be written in the Visa/passport.

Anybody who already drove through China had the same process?

Thx in advance!
