Chinese visa question.

I have been told by my TA and others that before we can get a visa for China we have to go to the consulate here in Chicago with a filled application and travel plans which include air and hotel itinerary meaning having tickets in hand. I also am under the impression that the standard visa is single entry. Well thats the issue I am having. From China I want to go to KL and back to Singapore, then back to Beijing before returning home. You may say why not return home form KL or Singapore. Well for the time we wish to go, late Sept. Hainan has fab rates on bi vs open jaw tickets which are more, perhaps a lot more. In addition its a NS RT ORD-PEK on a 5* carrier and its a 787 which helps with jet lag. So the big question is an I get multiple entry visas to China easily? I would hate go their and be denied.

Thank you.

Actually just happened to meet someone this evening who is going to China next week. He said you do not need the air ticket when applying for the visa but you do have to present info as to where you are staying like your hotel confirmation email or voucher. As for the visa entry issue for me thats still a ?. It was suggested that I may have to get separate entry visas but I really don't want to do that. I tried calling the Chinese consulate here in Chicago once at that was a dead end. Maybe I'll try again.

Try the consulate website instead: Fees, Processing Time & Payments - four visas types, only one is single entry, all the same price.
