Passports and Visas
Everybody entering China must bring a valid
passport. Most foreign participants must also acquire an entry visa
issued by a Chinese consulate in his/her country. Plan well ahead of
time, since issuing entry visa may take weeks. In general, the
applicant must apply in person.
After you have paid the registration fee, please complete the
"Incoming Overseas Scholars Application Form for Visa F"
and send it to email@example.com.
The organizers will then provide you with an invitation letter, which you can use for your visa application. For additional details,
please contact the Chinese Embassy or Consulate, where you wish to
apply for your visa.
Note to participants from Taiwan:
Useful web sites:

theft or other property damage.
