[I’m not sure where to post this question; sorry it doesn’t directly relate to Taiwan.]
For those Americans who have done business in China:
A business associate (from my prior job in the US) has asked if I’d be interested in traveling to China (from Taiwan) to visit several of his company’s suppliers and customers. is company doesn’t have an office in China.
I read that in order to obtain a business visa, one must have an invitation letter fom an affiliated office in China. Is this really necessary, and if so, would I need to receive a letter from every company I intend to visit?
Also, if I state that my purpose for entering China is travel, but I visit several companies to discuss business with them, will I be caught and executed without trial?
