When to apply

We suggest you submit your visa application a month before your planned trip to China. If you apply for the visa too early, the visa may have expired when you need to use it. If you apply for the visa too late, you may not have enough time to get the visa.

If you have submitted all documents required, it normally takes 4 business days (it varies case by case).

Tips: You'd better go to the Chinese embassy or the consulate general on Wednesday and Thursday. There will be less people to apply the visa. You will save your time.

Where to apply

You can apply for a visa at a Chinese Embassy or Consulate General.

U.S. citizens must obtain a visa before arrival in China. They cannot apply for a visa at the port of entry.

Holders of a British passport are exempt from a visa to visit Hong Kong.

What type of VISA should I apply?

X1 Visa: Issued to those who intend to study in China for a period of more than 180 days.

X2 Visa: Issued to those who intend to study in China for a period of no more than 180 days.
