US Options
Why does the US citizen pay only one price? Shouldn't there be a price for single, double, and multiple and so on?

Thank you!

This is based on the principle of reciprocity between China and US.

Termination of contract
A friend's employer in China informed her on Tuesday 20th February 2024 that they want to terminate her contract because her students were not improving as a teacher. Can this be done without warning? and they went ahead to book her flight (27th February) back to her country.

I'm so sorry and it is better to contact the embassy directly as this is not the official website.
Answered by R | Feb. 27, 2024 01:27

Thanks for your reply. She's already on her way back to Nigeria. We called the embassy nobody picked, tried sending mail but keep getting the failure message reply. Delivery incomplete
There was a temporary problem delivering your message to Gmail will retry for 44 more hours. You'll be notified if the delivery fails permanently. Is such a shame!

Generally, you need to prepare air ticket booking record (round trip) and proof of a hotel reservation, etc. or an invitation letter issued by a relevant entity in China. The invitation letter should contain:

(1) Information on the applicant (full name, gender, date of birth, etc.)

(2) Information on the planned visit (arrival and departure dates, place(s) to be visited, etc.)

(3) Information on the inviting entity (name, contact telephone number, address, official stamp, signature of the legal representative).
