Chinese visa in Laos - current situationHi all,
I want to apply for a Chinese visa in Laos (Vientiane) and have some questions about the current situation.
1. Do they insist on the proof of an airplane ticket? (I think in Laos, it is quite common to use a land border to enter China) If you have no air ticket, do they insist on seeing a prebooked bus ticket or something similar?
2. For accomodation in China, is it enough to show bookings of, let's say, 3-5 nights?
3. Any names and adresses of travel agencies in Vientiane who can handle visa applications for China?
Thanks a lot!

4Getting a China visa in Laos - Current situation - answer
Ok, here is my experience about getting a China visa in Vientiane:
I found a travel agency near St. Francois Street, they don't do visa service for China at the moment, but they made a flight reservation for 1 Dollar. Then I booked 5 nights in the cheapest guesthouse I could find (and I can still cancel it anyway).
In the Chinese consulate, they seemed satisfied with that. I took the 2-3 day express service and got the visa within one day. :-)

I applied for the China visa in Vientiane at the beginning of July and had no problem (but I don't know whether the conditons have changed since then). I just needed a flight reservation (which i made at a travel agency in the tourist area, near francois street; the cost was 1 dollar) and a hotel reservation (I made a reservation for 5 nights which i cancelled later).
My latest info is that if you apply in Bangkok, the same conditions apply for a tourist visa, but I think they control everything more strictly...
