I'm working full time so can't get to the embassy.

Do Xanadu provide a visa service? If so, is there anything else that I need to give them besides the following?

1. ARC with more than 6 months left on it
2. Passport
3. The fee

Is it true that you need to provide evidence of a hostel/hotel booking and if so, is one night enough or do I have to provide evidence for accommodation for the whole time that I'm there?

Thanks.

Last time I got a visa for China I needed passport, ARC, PHOTO, application, fee.

The fee varies depending on where you are from.
At the low end it is 35k + agency fee and 4-5 working days.

At the high end it is over 200k and next day (American and expedited).

When I got mine, you didn't need any pre-booked stay information. That was good since I didn't HAVE any such thing to give them [I found my hotel in Beijing by wandering around in Dongcheng].

The main thing the Chinese want from Americans in Korea, assuming you are an American, is money. AT LEAST 190,000 for a single-entry, 30-day visa. Ridiculous. For my next trips I'm sending my passport back and getting a multi-entry, 1-year visa from an American consulate.

Xanadu was quite good in getting it, no issues from them at all. I would recommend them.
