For an internship in China, you need a valid visa. Applying for a visa to enter China may be associated with hurdles. Until a few years ago, there was the classic internship visa, unfortunately it was abolished. We will show you two possible ways to get a visa for your internship in China.
The student X2 visa (most common variant for internships in China)
The X2 visa is a short-term student visa, which is mainly issued for language courses, training or visiting any other school. As a rule, an X2 student visa is enough for an internship in China, when it is combined with a language course.
For the student X2 Visa, you need the following documents
- Visa application form (you can download online at the Chinese Embassy)
- Original passport and a copy (must be valid for more than 6 months after the departure date). Please make sure that your passport has at least two empty pages.
- Official passport photograph
- Copy of invitation letter from us, the school or university
The X2 Student Visa is valid for a maximum of 6 months and cannot be renewed in China. When you travel to China with the X2 Visa and you need to stay in China during the whole stay as it is a single-entry visa.
