Is a tourist visa required for US citizens visiting China?

A valid passport and visa are required for American citizens to visit China. A visa should be obtained prior to your arrival in China or your entry will be refused. Please be aware that, if you transit from Hong Kong or Macau to China, you are still required to obtain a visa even though US citizens can visit Hong Kong for 90 days without a visa as long as they have a passport with an expiration date beyond six months of arrival.
