Invitation Letter Application
The WZPV Committee will temporarily stop issuing Visa Invitation Letter to all foreigners amid the global threat of the Coronavirus disease.
China has suspended entry to foreign nationals with visas issued before 27 March, this includes transit passengers. The only exemptions will be diplomatic, service, courtesy or C visas. Individuals coming to China for necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities, or for emergency humanitarian needs, may apply for new visas at Chinese embassies or consulates. All international passenger flights to Beijing will be diverted to 16 designated airports in Chengdu, Changsha, Hefei, Lanzhou, Tianjin, Shijiazhuang, Taiyuan, Hohhot, Jinan, Qingdao, Nanjing, Shenyang, Dalian, Zhengzhou, Xi’an and Wuhan. Health regulations surrounding passengers arriving from overseas are continuously changing. All overseas passenger arrivals are subject to health checks (likely involving nucleic acid or swab tests), including during transit, followed by a centralised quarantine period of at least 14 days – costs for which to be covered by the passenger. During this period follow-up swap tests are likely to take place. Those failing health checks may be sent to a designated hospital for treatment. Quarantine requirements can change at short notice and may differ from province to province. Families, including those with children, may be separated upon entering quarantine. Those undergoing centralised quarantine will be asked to cover the fees for the duration. Before you travel, check with your airline, travel operator or hotel for any changes or restrictions. China issued an order to ensure compliance with health and quarantine regulations at borders. Refusal to comply with procedures or testing put in place or any attempts to deliberately conceal health conditions can result in being sentenced to up to three years in prison. This applies to both Chinese and foreign nationals.
