Exchange Programs in China

Travel to/in China

Make sure you learn about Chinese currency and best practices for making purchases before you travel.

Chinese Visas

You can find general information about student passports and visas in our travel guide. Please be aware that China has recently been making changes to their visa application process, so you should work with your advisor to make sure you do it correctly. You can find more information at the China Embassy website.

While in China, be aware that you can usually enter just once on your visa, so you can’t take any trips outside of mainland China to places such as Hong Kong, South Korea or Taiwan.
