Dual citizen traveling to China
My son is a minor and a dual citizen (born in USA and naturalized as Mexican). He is traveling to China to study for 6 months and he is applying for a student visa this coming January.
Since we are currently living in Mexico, he is applying for his Chinese visa in Mexico using his Mexican passport.
His flight is from Mexico to USA then to China. He must enter and exit USA with his American passport so I am booking his flights as an American.

When he arrives in China, is there any problem from the fact that he will be flying as an American, but he will enter and exit China with his Mexican passport (with Chinese visa in it)?

Thank you for you attention,

As long as he will enter and exit China with his Mexican passport and Chinese visa, it should be fine. The immigration won't have interest in the things before entering China. However, please check with the airline to see if he will be allowed to board the plane from the US to China if using US passport, which doesn't have a Chinese visa.
Answered by Robert from MEXICO | Dec. 18, 2019 06:03

I will check with the airline,

Also, as an alternative, would you know if it is possible to apply for my son's Chinese Visa to be granted in his American passport from Mexico City?

Thank you!
Answered by Keith | Dec. 18, 2019 22:31

I'm afraid he has to use the Mexican passport.
