Apply for your student visa
In order to come to China and study at XJTLU, you are required to apply for a student visa. You need to make the application in our own country or where you are living before entering China.
All students should read our advice about preparing for a happy and healthy stay in China.
XJTLU provides on-site support to help you check into your accommodation, for all students who use the airport pick-up services in August.
Police registration within 24 hours after arrival into China
All foreign nationals moving to China are required to register with the nearby police station after they arrive. All students at XJTLU will need to do this in the station located less than 10 minutes’ walk from campus.
Residence permit application
International students who will stay in China for more than six months have to apply for a residence permit within 30 days after their arrival in China. The 30 days are counted from the entry date which is indicated on the Chinese entry stamp on passport. XJTLU will help you apply for this residence permit.
The induction programme at XJTLU is mandatory for all students. The programme contains all the key information you need to start your study and stay in China successfully. It is also a great opportunity to meet your fellow students and meet new friends from China and all over the world.
Opening a Chinese bank account
It is very useful to have a local bank account in China. This will save you time and money, and allow you to use China’s advanced e-payment technologies which make life here very convenient.
