Hi, for X1 visa, do one need an invitation again aside that whic has been issued by the VFS Global ?

Answered by Greene from MALAYSIA | Sep. 17, 2018 20:14

As I know, to apply for student X1 type from the CVASC in your country, you are supposed to provide the relevant documents including your passport and its copy, the application form, a passport-style photo, admission letter and its copy, JW form from the school and the copy, air ticket to China, as well as the accommodation proof. You don't need the invitation for that. Just for reference.

Marie, you need to provide valid passport and its copy, a passport-style photo, an invitation letter from your business partner, round trip air tickets, hotel reservation and proof of financial support.
You are advised to call the CVASC to inquire if the documents have to be in French, or English documents are okay.
