Since Hong Kong is a Special Administrative Region, it has its own border patrol and therefore, you will need a separate Hong Kong visa to enter even if you hold a Chinese M visa. Luckily, many countries have agreements with Hong Kong and so their nationals only need a valid ID and passport to enter the country. Check out our Visa Checker tool to see your country’s requirements and visa costs.
The Chinese business visa requirements are determined by which country you hold a passport from. There are 23 countries that have agreements with mainland China regarding commercial and trade travel including the United States. If you are looking to enter Taiwan, Macau, or other territories related to mainland China, you may need to contact your embassy to find the correct requirements.
