Latest news about student visa application in Shanghai-difficult
From:  | Writter: SN Mandarin Chinese Academy | Update: Dec 05, 2017  Read:553

It's now very strict for visa application in Shanghai and it is NOT allowed to transfer from non-student visa to student visa since November 2017. 

If you are having a student visa, please try to apply for the renewal as early as possible to avoid any future problems. 

If you are now students of SN Mandarin and having student visa ending before Feb. 28, 2018, please contact your course consultant or go to school to complete your program renewal process (before Nov. 30) so as to have the new documents ready before the winter holidays when there will be no process ( January and February 2018)

If you are planning to come to Shanghai to study, please make sure to apply for student visa ready at your country and then come to Shanghai with the student visa. DON'T come with a tourist visa and plan to transfer to student visa which is almost impossible!
