china visa

ok this is interesting. It cost 100 dollars to get a visa for china and you must apply in person or have someone do it for you. To get same day processing which means drop off application in the morning and coming back in the afternoon, it costs and addtl 20 dollars. I'm sure there are services that do this for you, but i'm guessing once you use the service plus cost of visa itself, it could be 200 dollars or more. I wonder if other countries our so costly for visas. There seems to be a prejudice towards americans as visas for all other countries are 30 dollars. Brazil is the same way and they justify it by saying that visas for brazillians to america is so expensive. If i have to get a visa for every country i visit, i could be spending alot of moula before i even travel. I need to look into this.
