Do you offer sightseeing tours?

We ask our students every 3-4 weeks if they are interested in a sightseeing tour. Should this be the case, there is nothing to prevent and the tours will be carried out as usual every month. The locations will be chosen in consultation with the students.

 

Visa questions

How do I get a Visa?

China doesn’t have a Visa on arrival service, so you will need to apply for your Visa before you come to China. To do so, you will need to get in touch with your nearest Chinese embassy. They will tell you exactly what documents you will need and how to proceed (the procedure is slightly different from country to country).

What type of Visa do I need?

For students who stay less than 90 days, we recommend applying for a standard tourist visa (L-type). For students who will stay more than 3 months at our school, we would recommend applying for the X-2 Visa (Short Study Visa), which we can easily extend here in China up to 12 months if necessary.

Will you provide the JW202 document?

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide this kind of document. However, if you apply for the recommended tourist or X-2 (Short Study Visa) Visa, this document won’t be necessary. We are constantly receiving students from around the world and until it was never required.

How much does a Visa cost?

China visa fees vary enormously according to your nationality, the number of entries required, the country you are applying in and whether you want an express service. Therefore, we would recommend you to get in touch with your nearest Chinese embassy, as they will be able to give you all necessary information.
