Expats with valid Residence Permit can enter China directly !!

23rd Sep 2020 - News from the China NIA (National Immigration Administration)

In view of the current COVID-19 situation and the need of epidemic prevention and control, adjustments are now made to the Announcement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Immigration Administration on the Temporary Suspension of Entry by Foreign Nationals Holding Valid Chinese Visas or Residence Permits issued on 26 March 2020.

Effective from 0 a.m., 28 September 2020, foreign nationals holding valid Chinese residence permits for work, personal matters and reunion are allowed to enter China with no need for applying for new visas.
- VisaInChina Comments: This one is easy to understand, for example, if you have a work residence permit still valid till 1st Dec 2020, you can use this visa to enter China directly after 28th Sept, but before 1st Dec 2020.

If the above three categories of residence permits held by foreign nationals expired after 0 a.m., 28 March 2020, the holders may apply for relevant visas by presenting the expired residence permits and relevant materials to the Chinese embassies or consulates on the condition that the purpose of the holders' visit to China remains unchanged. The above-mentioned personnel shall strictly abide by the Chinese regulations on epidemic prevention and control.
- VisaInChina Comments: For example, if you have a work residence permit but expired already at 1st Jun 2020, but you are still working for the same company in China. Now you can go to the Chinese Consulate to apply a new Z visa to enter China (most of Chance, they don't request you to provide PU letter anymore - unconfirmed, better double check with the Chinese Consulate in your country or the China visa center - to get more details)

Other measures in the Announcement issued on March 26 will continue to be implemented. While ensuring effective epidemic control, the Chinese government will continue resuming people-to-people exchanges in a step-by-step and orderly manner.
- VisaInChina Comments: The other visas except above 3 types, for example, student residence permit, it's still not open yet.
