China Student Visa

The China study visa is granted for a period of 3 months and is a single entry visa. When you enter China you will have to visit the immigration office which will extend the visa to the duration of your studies. In order to obtain a study visa to China you will have to show proof of all your liquid assets and how you plan to pay for your education. These documents will include your income tax papers as well as your bank statements. You may also be required to provide health documents along with your study visa application. The visa process for China can take time and you should therefore apply early.

A Student Visa (X-visa) is issued to foreign citizens who visit China for the purpose of education for a period of six or more months. A foreign citizen who will study in China for less than six months should apply for a business visa(F-visa).

Tsinghua University


I want to thank the entire KGC team for helping me with my student visa. I had never applied for a visa before or even travelled abroad so this was all very new for me. I could not find a lot of clear details online which is why I was looking for help. I ran into KGC online and decided to hire their services. They helped me so much. They kept me on track and followed up all the time. I was very stressed but their constant attention kept me going. Thank you KGC and Karan.

Message from Dr. Karan Gupta

The X-visa is issued by the Chinese Embassy or the Chinese Consulate General and is usually a single entry visa, valid for 3 months. Holders of the student visa will apply for a residence permit at a local Public Security Bureau within 30 days of entry into China. If invited for an interview, follow the 3 Cs when it comes to your visa interview. Be Calm, Confident and in Control. Your interviewer is looking for more information from you and your motivation behind studying abroad so try to be as articulate and precise as possible.

The visa you get initially is valid for three months and will be a single entry visa. 

It is recommended that you have all your financial documents like family and personal bank asset statements in place before you apply for the visa. If you don’t have the required finances, you can approach the university for scholarships or trusts which provide scholarships for students. Additionally, you can take a bank loan too. The key is to be able to prove that you have sufficient funds to fund your education and take care of your living expenses.

There could be a variety of reasons. We need to check the whole application in detail in order to provide you with the possible solution.

The earliest that you can apply is 3 months before the start of your course. The X1 visa is meant for longer duration courses (more than 6 months) while the X2 visa is for shorter duration courses (less than 6 months). The normal processing time is a week. X1 visa holders have to compulsorily register with the local security bureau within 30 days of arrival in the country after which the X1 visa will be replaced by the China residence permit.
