Good evening sir/madam, I am Dery Emmanuel. How do I apply for a study Visa?
I got an admission with partial scholarship (Tuition waiver for 1 academic year) into Beijing Normal University for the 2021/2022 academic year.

From what I have read on the Chinese websites, they are not accepting visa applications from students now. Students are not allowed to enter China at the moment.
