Special Invitation Letter (PU letter) from China

China is allowing foreigners with a valid reason to enter China, travelers can obtain a visa, against a special invitation letter (PU letter).

One can apply for a PU letter at the local FAO of the town/city of residence. The process of issuing letters is between 2 to 6 weeks.

Acceptance of an application for an invitation letter is not an assurance of getting the same. Authorities can reject the application. The letters are valid for three months. Passenger can enter once for a period between 90 days to 180 days.

After getting a letter, the recipient of the letter must apply for Visa to the embassy/consulate of China in the residing country for a Visa.

Receipt of acceptance letter does not assure a Visa; Embassy/consulate can refuse a Visa. Business Visas issued are single entry for a period between 90 days to 180 days and may not necessarily match the period of the invitation letter (PU letter).

Invitation letter (PU letters) are barcoded and are verified by the Embassy/Consulate before issuing a visa. Submission of forged letters can attract legal action.

Before boarding for flight, testing is mandatory as per the instruction of the Embassy of China and declarations while obtaining the letter of invitation (PU letter).

Passengers undergo test for the virus upon arrival in China. There is a process of quarantine either at designated hotels or at home.

A person with a valid resident card can apply for a regular work visa after returning. Resident cards can be renewed online on the website of the foreigner’s affairs office.
