address key issues at the intersection of nutrition, bioactive compounds, and chronic
diseases. The following are the main questions we aim to tackle during this event:
- What is the current scientific understanding of the role of dietary bioactive compounds
in the prevention and management of chronic diseases?
- What are the mechanisms by which these bioactives exert their beneficial effects on
chronic disease development and progression?
- How can we optimize the bioavailability and bioactivity of dietary bioactives through
food processing, preparation, and storage techniques?
- What are the future directions for research, intervention strategies, and policy
development regarding dietary nutrient bioactives and chronic diseases?
By addressing these questions, we aim to advance scientific knowledge, promote
evidence-based practices, and facilitate discussions that contribute to the prevention and
management of chronic diseases through dietary interventions.

China Online Visa | Electronic Visas to travel to
In order to ensure the information is correct and up to date, there may be changes which we
are not aware of. And different countries have different rules for the visa application. It
is always a good idea to check the latest regulations in your country. You should confirm
details with your local Consular Office. This page just gives some general information of
the visa application.
China Visa Information
- Check whether you need a visa
To contribute to the tourism industry, some ports of entry in China allow nationals of
some countries to visit specific regions within 72 or 144 hours if they are in transit
to a third country. Nationals of 17 countries can travel visa free to Mainland China for
short terms stays between 15, 30, 60 and 90s days. The countries listed below have a
mutual visa-free agreement with China, with the exception of Brunei, Japan and Singapore
to which China offers unilateral waivers.
- Check which visa you need to get
The majority of foreign citizens are required to obtain one of the China visas in order
to visit the country, as there are only a few nationalities who are granted visa free
entry for China for short stays. At the moment, travelers from countries who are
visa-exempt for China are obliged to apply for a visa in person from a Chinese embassy
or consulate, with only a few exceptions, including for tour groups and airline crew
from a few select countries. This is expected to change in the near future for select
eligible nationalities when China introduces an electronic application form for visas.
This will make it possible to apply for certain visa types for China exclusively online,
eliminating the need to travel to an embassy or consulate in person.
As the launch date for the Chinese electronic is yet to be finalized, however, non
visa-exempt citizens are still currently required to apply for one of the following
types for China from an embassy or consulate.
China Visa Registration Process
Foreign nationals who wish to travel to China will need to follow a registration process
to obtain their visa. The China Visa application form should be signed and every
question must be answered. Applicants may select "none" if the question does not apply
to their individual circumstances. Applications for the Chinese visa must be completed
in block capital letters and handwritten changes will not be accepted. The signature on
the China visa application must match the signature on the applicant's passport.
People's Republic of China diplomatic missions require that each visa application is
completed following strict guidelines. Supporting documents must be accurately and
How Long Does It Take to Get a Visa to China
Generally speaking, if the applicant meets all the requirements, has all the necessary
documents and holds a passport with at least six months validity and two blank pages it
should take about four working days to get a Chinese visa. Some People's Republic of
China Diplomatic Missions offer rush service, which speed up the processing time of a
visa for China. Nonetheless, it is only available for cases of extreme urgency and
depend on the approval of the Chinese Consular Office. Foreign nationals who wish to
travel to Mainland China, whether it is for tourism, business, transit or other, are
recommended to apply between two months to fifteen days before their departure. If the
traveler applies with too much time in advance, they visa might expire before they can
use it. When a visa for China is granted, the validity period of such visa begins from
the moment it was approved.
How Do You Get a Visa for China?
The People's Republic of China has several types of visas in place. The visa a traveler
needs depends on their citizenship, purpose of trip and the length of their stay.
Currently, there are only 17 countries that are exempt from applying for a China visa to
travel to Mainland China. However, the country does waive visas if the traveler meets
specific requirements and is traveling to certain regions.
To apply for a Chinese visa, the traveler will need to complete an application
attach a recently-taken color photo, submit the application and pay the respective fee.
Tourist that are from non-visa exempt countries should apply for the Tourist (L) visa,
issued to aliens who are traveling to Mainland China for tourism purposes only. Those
who wish to carry out business in China will need to obtain the Business (M) China visa.
To successfully apply for a visa to China, the applicant will need to provide supporting
documents and a valid passport. If applying for a Tourist (L) visa to China, the
supporting documents refer to round-trip tickets, accommodation bookings, or an
invitation letter from a travel agency in China. It is important to note that
visa application requirements will vary depending on the type of visa the
