He or she who fails the interview will be turned down; Submission of fake documents may result in restriction in entry in the future. However, to pass the interview does not necessarily mean that the applicant could finally get it.

If you have residence permit, they can apply for S type. They need to provide passport and the copy, passport-style photo, completed application form, an invitation letter and copy of your passport and residence permit, as well as your relationship certificate and others. Next, submit the application to the China embassy.

There is no specific requirement for how much you should have in your bank account, but you need to make sure that you have enough travel fees to cover your expenditure in China. Just for reference.
