Visa Facilitation for Some Foreign Nationals with Valid Chinese Residence Permits

In view of the rapid spread of COVID-19 across the world, China has decided to temporarily suspend the entry into China by foreign nationals holding visas or residence permits still valid to the time of the announcement effective from 28 March 2020. Meanwhile, foreign nationals traveling to China for necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities or out of emergent humanitarian needs may still apply for visas.

As the prevention and control of COVID-19 become regular, in order to facilitate exchanges, China now decides that, foreign nationals from the countries listed below who hold valid residence permits, including work permit, permit for family reunion and personal matters, may apply for visas for free at any Chinese embassy or consulate in these countries. After entering China, they are kindly requested to comply with the epidemic prevention regulations of the local governments.

Such foreign nationals in Albania can make an appointment by sending an e-mail to consulate.chinaemb@gmial.com, the subject being “Valid Residence Permit Holder Applying for visa + Passport Number + Name”, attached with completed and signed Visa Application Form, copy of valid residence permit, copy of passport data page, completed and signed Health Declaration Form for Visa Application.
