Q&A Regarding China’s Recent Residence Permit Entry

From September 28, 2020, foreign nationals holding valid residence permits for work, family reunions, or personal affairs may be allowed entry to China. However, those who had their residence permits in those approved categories but expired after March 28, 2020, may apply for a new entry visa at a Chinese embassy or consulate.

This announcement has generated several questions that we have compiled here, a Q&A article that we hope can address most of these questions.

If you feel a question is missing, feel free to add it in the comments section.
