certification issues
Hello, I have been offered a job in China and I have been asked to provide "authentic certification of my degrees from the Chinese consulate or embassy". My degree certificates are home in Scotland. Do I need to provide the actual certificates or would a scanned copy be okay?

Answered by Alan from DENMARK | Jul. 18, 2017 21:38

David, you need to get the certificates authenticated from the Chinese embassy or consulate in your home country, and I'm afraid the actual certificates are required for that.

Muhammad, if you go there for tourism purpose, you can apply for a tourist L type.
The first thing is to prepare the relevant materials containing your passport and its copy, the application form, a passport-style photo, your residence permit in Pakistan, round trip air tickets and hotel booking record.
The next thing is to submit the application to the embassy of PRC to apply for it.
