MCLEAN, VA–(EMWNews – July 17, 2008) – CIBT, Inc. (, the world’s

largest visa and passport expediter, reports that tourist travel to China

demonstrates that Americans’ love of sports, particularly the Olympics, is

alive and well.

Steven Diehl, CIBT, Inc. Vice President, said, “Visa processing from year

to year is up because of the Olympics, even though Chinese requirements

have become more restrictive in recent months. Because we process so many

visas and are very familiar with Chinese visa regulations, we have been

able to ensure that travelers will get to the Olympic Games and not miss a

minute of the action.

“Just as Olympic athletes keep their eyes on the prize of Olympic

championships, fans of the Games have been waiting to cheer them on in

person. CIBT continues to create customized plans for companies sending 50

or more people to China this summer. We are assisting athletes and coaches,

corporate travelers, tour operators, VIPs, and some very large groups to

accommodate the unique needs of each of our clients. And there is still

time for CIBT to expedite visas for last-minute travelers,” Mr. Diehl


Mr. Diehl cautioned Olympics-bound travelers that “going directly to the

Chinese Embassy or consulates to obtain visas has proven frustrating for

many individuals and groups who have been turned away due to the lack of

proper support documentation often resulting in multiple return trips.

Sending your application by mail is even riskier. Until recently, a Chinese

visa was valid for one year and permitted multiple entries. Now, people

need official invitations, flight and hotel confirmation, and in some cases

bank statements and other documents to apply for a visa.”

CIBT has developed special visa kits for international groups. The kits

have become especially valuable for companies trying to coordinate travel

for global employees and customers departing for the Olympics from various

countries. CIBT is the only visa expediter with worldwide offices.
