  Asked by Mr. Ken Barberis(Northern Mariana Islands)
My son is an Australian visiting me in on the Island of Tinian in the Northern Mariana Islands. He has been studying Madarin in China. He needs to return to China from here. Where does he apply for a visa.

 Answered by Mr. Henry
Mr Ken, since your son has been studying Madarin, I assume he has already hold a Chinese X (student) and a residence permiting him unlimited entries during the valid period. If it is really in need of a visa, your son is better to apply for it in your home country which is close to Tinian, because there is no Chinese embassy in the Northern Mariana Islands.

This includes 2 years in Shanghai and a year in Tianjin. Can you please tell mewho I need to contact, to get the clearances? If such documentation is not available from China, please let me know. Best wihes, kind regards

 Answered by Mr. Aaron
Mrs. frederikson, you need contact the Schools you’ve ever worked in Shanghai and in Tianjin, and ask them to get the No Criminal Record from Shanghai Public Security Bureau and Tianjin Public Security Bureau. Once you are verified, the Certificate of No Criminal Record can be issued to you.

Visa question - urgent
Hi, I am traveling to China as a guest of The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong and will be collecting information for a story I am writing for an international publication. Do I apply for a business visa or a J2 visa?
Secondly, my mum is joining me but she is not working, so presumably she's a tourist right?
Thanks in advance.

Dear, if you take a flight from Hong Kong to Guangzhou and then fly from Guangzhou to Bangkok, you can enjoy the visa-free transit in Guangzhou and stay there for as long as six days. It's important that you must enter Guangzhou by air.

Hi, I think you can take it to enter mainland China. If you are still worried, maybe you can contact your airline to confirm this.
