Visa Information

After your placement has been confirmed, the letter of invitation will be issued and sent to your home address.

Now you can apply for a 30 day F-Visa at your local Chinese embassy. You will need:

  • Letter of invitation
  • Passport photos
  • Passport
  • Visa application form

For detailed information, check the website of your local Chinese embassy.

Note: Due to Chinese Visa regulations it is not possible to get residence and work permit for China if you have not been awarded with a degree from a post-secondary educational institution and at least 2 years of work experience in a related field. Your F-Visa will be extended to 6 or 12 months once you arrive in China.

After you have received your visa, you are free to enter China. In China, you will be supported to extend your visa to 6 or 12 months with no extra charges, which is no problem if you have a clear visa history in China and have not violated any Chinese laws in the past.

In the most unusual scenario that your visa extension is denied, we will refund you the whole programme fee and reimburse you with $500 as international flight allowance.(see Cancellation policy)
