China Furniture Fair - CIFF 2015 Visitors Guide
The China International Furniture Fair (CIFF) is regarded as the No.1 Platform for the World Class and Asia's Furniture Sourcing Center. It's a golden chance for business and innovation sharing. From 2015, the September session CIFF will be held in National Convention and Exhibition Center (Shanghai).
For foreign visitors to the CIFF, there are three things to prepare before you go: CIFF Invitation, Registration and VISA to China.
CIFF Invitation & Pre-Registration
The organizer of China International Furniture Fair will offer visitors free invitation to the Fair, which might be required while applying the VISA to China. Visitors please register in the Official Pre-Registration System, complete the registration with details and click "Need to assist with Visa". The CIFF Invitation Letter officially issued by CIFF organizer will be sent to the applicants as soon as possible.
VISA to China
With the CIFF Invitation Letter, visitors can apply for the VISA to China. Please visit the Embassy or Consulate General of P.R. China in your country or regular residence place to apply for the VISA.
To avoid the possible "traffic jam" of business Visa to China, visitors might choose Hong Kong as a transition stop and enter Mainland China with the help of Hong Kong's travel agency.
Please notice that visitors who leave Mainland China to Hong Kong with single-entry Visa have to apply for Visa again if they want to come back to Guangzhou. To avoid troubles, multi-entry Visa is recommended for the CIFF trip if a side trip to Hong Kong is considered.
