How to secure a student visa for China
The economic boom and fast growth have fueled China's education boom in recent years. Universities in China are becoming more well-known and recognized, and they are moving up the global rankings as a result.
According to China Power, China's universities attract students from all over the globe because of the popularity of their technical courses and professional degrees.
A rise in the number of employment opportunities accessible in the nation last year was 81% for new graduates.
According to The Pie News, over 26 million individuals are now enrolled in colleges and universities throughout the country, with 490,000 of those students being foreign.
In reality, China is on track to welcome 500,000 foreign students by 2020, according to the country's Ministry of Education.
The following information can help you get a student visa if you're considering enrolling in a course or degree program in China.
Visas for students come in a variety of forms.
There are two kinds of Chinese Student Visas (X Visas): X1 and X2.
The X1 visa is for students who will be in China for more than six months, while the X2 visa is for students who will be in China for less than six months.
A further distinction is that the X1 visa is often granted for repeated entries and is valid for up to five years, according per Visarite.com. A single-entry X2 visa with a six-month validity period is the norm.
If you have a 30-day visa and want to spend the whole time, you may do so in China. During this time, you must, however, go to a local Public Security Bureau (PSB) Exit and Entry Administration office and apply for a residency permit, which is essentially a substitute for your visa.
In general, the residence permit is only good for the length of time specified on your initial visa.
Where to submit an application
Students from a select group of countries must apply in person at a Chinese Consulate in order to be considered for admission. To see a list of the nations on that list, go to this page.
People who live in nations such as the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and the EU may use the CVASC (Chinese VISA Application Service Centre).
A Chinese embassy/consular office near you may accept applications in person or via a visa agency in the event that there isn't a CVASC nearby.
Documents and paperwork
You'll need the following papers to apply for a student visa:
a genuine passport, a photocopy of the name page, and two blank visa pages
Visa Application Form V.2013, Completed (handwritten forms are not acceptable)
JW201 or JW202 form with one passport-style picture from China's Ministry of Education (original and one photocopy)
Admission Recipient school's notice (original and one photocopy)
a receipt proving the payment of the visa application cost
Airline tickets and hotel reservations copied
a legally binding record of one's medical examination
When should you make use of it
A month before you plan to arrive in China, you should apply for your student visa.
Visas for China, on the other hand, are issued quickly; most applications are processed within a week.
Prepare a student visa for the Chinese mainland
After obtaining authorization from your host institution and the Chinese immigration authorities, part-time employment and paid internships on campus are permitted.
To designate your visa for 'part-time employment,' you'll need to travel to the police station after receiving a permission letter from your institution or employer (for internships).
