Moving to Beijing
A move to China is an exciting adventure in itself. Like any international move, it is always good to have a little bit of background info before your arrival in a new city. Located in northern China, Beijing is the capital city of the People’s Republic of China. It is one of the most highly populated cities in the world, with a population of nearly 20 million people.
The municipality of Beijing covers around 17,000 square kilometers and is broken down in to 16 districts or counties, with 289 towns and villages.
Visa requirements for Beijing
If you wish to relocate to Beijing, the visa requirements for China are dependent upon your nationality, as well as the reason and intended period of stay. Obtaining a visa for Beijing is a little more involved than for many other countries. The only visa types that you can obtain without additional support from a local business, government or educational institution are a transit visa or a tourist visa.
The other visa options are a work visa, study visa or business visa. Work and student visas are commonly issued for a period of just 30 days. Once you have received this, it allows you the opportunity to request a Temporary Residence Permit upon arrival in Beijing so that you can request an extension to your stay. The extension is usually allowed for a maximum period of one year, but allows unlimited entries in to China.
When you are arriving in Beijing using a work or student visa, your employer or school/university needs to help you with the arrangements for your permit. You can expect that this permit will involve having a physical examination, as well as you being able to provide a number of documents along with your valid passport. You will also need to provide proof of your accommodation, which is first arranged at your local police station.
Processing fees for Chinese visas are dependent upon your nationality. There is a Visa Fee Abolition Agreement, of which a number of qualifying countries have no applicable fees: Pakistan, Maldives, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Poland, Yugoslavia and Slovakia. You need to check to confirm the exact costs for the processing free for the visa applicable to you your passport status. For processing of visas in China, four working days is the suggested waiting time.
Please note that the PRC (People’s Republic of China) has different visa requirements for travelling to Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
