From March 15, 2021, the Chinese Embassy in the United States will provide the facilitation for visa applicants inoculated with Chinese COVID-19 vaccines (having taken either two doses of inactivated vaccines with the stipulated gap in between, or a single-dose vaccine at least 14 days prior to the application) and obtained the vaccination certificate.

Applicants are required to obtain specific approval for their essential travel to China. Applicants will need to contact the entity or company they will be visiting in China to coordinate issuance of a specific visa approval letter/ invitation letter, called a PU letter. This will need to be issued by the Provincial Foreign Affairs Office in China and made out to the appropriate consulate or embassy.

Additionally, if you hold a valid residence permit stamp in your passport that was issued prior to March 28th 2020 and that expired after this date you can now apply for a new visa to reenter China as long as you plan to resume your employment/residency there and have documentation supporting this. No PU letter will be required for this process.

China has decided to temporarily suspend the entry into China by foreign nationals holding visas or residence permits still valid to the time of this announcement, effective from 28 march 2020.
