China Student Visa Support
China Student Visa Application
China student visa application. International (non-immigrant) students coming from abroad are required to have valid visas to enter China for study purpose. Most international students enrolling in our Chinese language program will obtain a X1, X2 student visa or L travel visa for 30 days. Our school partners will issue the documentation necessary to help you obtain the visa. Once you have arrived, immigration advisors will be available to assist with travel, medical issues, or any questions regarding your legal status in China.
X1 Visa Long Term
X1 visa: student visa for long term study over 180 days. Usually students can apply for X1 visa by submitting passport, admission notice, visa application form (JW202/201), physical examination report (required in some countries) and photos to the local Chinese embassy or consulate. Since X1 is usually valid for only 30 days, students holding an X1 visa must apply for the residence permit within 30 days after entering China.
X2 Visa Short Term
X2 visa: student visa for short term study less than 180 days. X2 visa could be valid for 30-180 days. Usually students can apply for X2 visa by submitting passport, admission notice, visa application form (JW202/201, required in some countries), physical examination report (required in some countries) and photos to the local Chinese embassy or consulate.
Problem for Visa on-arrival
Visitors from Japan, Mongolia and Singapore are allowed to stay in China for 14-30 days without any Visa, which is called visa on arrival. However, it is impossible to convert visa-on-arrival into a residence permit here in China. Therefore, students should NOT come to China this way, otherwise they might have to go back to their home country and apply for a new visa.
Pay Attn. to Visa issue date and validity
Overseas students should enter or leave the country within the period of validity of their residence permits. Overseas students with F visas who plan to depart the country temporarily should note whether their F visas allow multiple entries. If not, the F visa will be voided on departure, and will create troubles for returning to China. Therefore, before departing, students should complete the appropriate forms to modify their F visas. Please do not enter China too early so as to prevent your student visa from expiring before your study begins. For more information, visit the official china embassy website.
