Ive been hearing mixed reports on going about getting a new L visa for China in Almaty. I will be coming from Kyrgyzstan and only have about 5 days before I need to get to China, so I'd need to get a visa pretty quick. Ive been hearing this thing about needing some letter of invitation or something from a chinese company to get back to china?? Or is the application strait forward like in other chinese embassys/consulates abroad? Would I be able to re-enter china by land with a double entry visa? I wonder if I can even get a double entry visa in Kathmandu (Im going from china to nepal to china (tibet) again to kyrgyz to kazakh and then back to china). Thanks

Reference the previous queries regarding this topic, has anybody recently had any success on this route i.e. Urumqi - Almaty, has it improved at all?

I will be sending my fiancee to Almaty in December for her K-1 Visa interview at US Consulate. We are having a difficult time trying to get info on some budget/low cost hotels (* Less than55 per night) in Almaty as most of the internet listing for these hotels seem to be old and their phone numbers have changed. For example: Hotel Issyk/Luch, Hotel Miras, Hotel Saltanat, Hotel Aliya, etc... We have contacted; Uyut, Kazzhol, Zhetzyu --- but they all seem to want to charge more than their internet advertised rates. If you know of something safe, decent, that may or may not have a continental breakfast and is not to far from city center and has single economy rooms under 6500 Tenge -OR- You can tell me the current phone numbers/email address of the hotels listed above, or any other budget hotel. IT WOULD BE A BIG HELP!!!!!! Thanks :o)
