  Asked by Mr. Franklin
Dear sir,
I have been living and working in China for the past 4yrs, currently am working in a (Nissan Automobile Company Limited). My wife is a football player, she play professional football in Sweden, now she just gave birth to our first Child on Easter day back in Mali, because of the new products our company is working on I won't be able to come back home to see my wife and the new born baby, so my company advice me to bring them over to visit me for 2 to 3month so that it won't affect our project, I will be able to spend time with them and also go on with my work. My company wants to bring them over for 3months visiting visa, what are the requirements? I have all the necessary living and working documents, waiting to hear from you asap.

 Answered by Mr. Walter(Serbia)
If it is only a short visit, she just needs to apply for an L. She is also eligible to apply for a work visa since you are holding a work Z. You should send them an invitation letter written by you. If your company can provide an invitation letter for them, it would be better. Copies of your passport and residence permit are also necessary for application.

Visit our son in Renshou
We want to visit our son that is currently staying in Renshou during December. I have already booked tickets and now need to apply for a visa. What documents are necessary to apply for a visa and how long before the time can it be done. Do I need to make an appointment at the Embassy or can I just arrive to apply for the visa?

Philip, you can submit passport, application form, recently-taken personal photo, round-trip tickets, hotel bookings, and an invitation letter from your son as well as a copy of his residence permit.

It normally takes four working days. You need to make an appointment online on the Appointment for Visa Application Submission (AVAS) system.

You need to apply for student X type beforehand. First, prepare the relevant documents including your passport and its copy, the application form, a passport-style photo, admission letter and JW form from the school as well as the certificate of physical examination. Next, submit the application to China embassy.
