 Asked by Mr. Samuel Appiah(Seychelles)
I work in China without working permit and I was fine 3000 yuan penalty which I did have paid. I came back last year and wanted to go back to visit my Chinese wife but I was refuse visa. My wife has tried all her best to let me come back but also failed. She called the embassy many times but no concrete answer. I personally forwarded my particulars and all the documents about my fine to the Chinese embassy but no answer. My wife was asked to wait for one month by the local exit and entry office, now is more than one year nothing happened. I want know what must I do to solve this problem? I want also to know why I was refused so that I can take my final decision. Thank you.

 Answered by Ms. Jiji
Mr Samuel, if your call is not answered, then you can go to the embassy in person to enquire. The reason why your application is refused might be your previous bad record, I guess.

I'm a citizen of Seychelles and want to apply for visas to China Beijing
I'm currently working in Seychelles and I applied for a university in Beijing and currently awaiting their admission package and the school will start in September but I'm planning to go to China in July for a 2 months vacation and I'm trying to find out if I need to wait for the university's admission package for their documents for student X type or apply directly here if possible

Answered by Joyce from NEW ZEALAND | May. 06, 2016 21:13

Kenneth, you can wait for the documents to apply for a student X type to enter PRC. Or you can apply a tourist L type directly to enter PRC for the vacation. After you enter PRC and get the documents, you can try to convert your tourist L type to student X type.
