  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.

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.

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.

Hi, you can make the application 3 months prior to your trip, but usually, you are advised to apply one month prior to the trip, so you can make the application in September. If you make the application from Australia, you can find the application form at the CVASC website.

Marlar, you can make the application together with your husband from Australia.
If you go to China for tourism purpose, you should provide the passport and its copy, the completed application form, a recently-taken bareheaded color photo, your residence permit in Australia, accommodation arrangement and the round trip air tickets.
