How to get tourist visa from Canada?

I need your help how to fulfill the embassy’s requirements to get it. It will be the second time we visit China in November: fly from Toronto to Shanghai. Take train or fly to Kunming, from there crossing the border to Laos, following Myannmar and ending in Cambodia. We Are flexible and we want to plan our trip as time come but not now. In advance we book a hotel room in Shanghai and our fly ticket from Toronto and back from Phnom Penh.

You will have to meet the visa requirements of each country and apply in advance. Since you will not be interring Laos by air, I'm afraid visa on arrival is not an option.

More likely, your passport must be valid for at least one year upon arrival.

We would like to have some tips from travelers who went through this process. We could draw a itinerary of our trip in China. But we couldn’t book bus tickets many months in advance as required.

No doubt we apply visas for others countries before we leave Canada but we are sure only China forces these paperworks.

Thanks for your help.

Your flight ticket from Cambodia returning to Canada will serve as your return ticket.. You don't have to book bus tickets out of China.

Agree, as long as yuo show a flight going home then it is ok. No need to show a visa for the next country either.

As a Canadian, you need to show a domestic itinerary with hotel bookings.

Another question: our first booking could it be considered as a invitation letter? Thanks.

Don't specifically know about Canadians, but the invitation letter is only one of the options. Your hotel bookings for the entire trip should suffice.

No, these are two different things. You do not need an invitation letter.
