The International Students Development Center's Degree Office is in charge of making/sending Admission Package( Those whose post address is in China, the Admission Package would be sent via EMS. Those whose post address is not in China, the Admission Package would be sent via DHL. The tracking number could be requested from International Students Development Center's Degree Office. Also please contact them if you have problem receiving the package.

2. Visa Application

Apply for " X1" visa at Chinese Embassy or Chinese Consulate in your country.

X1 visa means studying in China for more than 180 days, With this visa, you need to apply for Residence Permit immediately after you arrive in China. (X2 visa means studying in China for less than 180 days. That is mostly for exchange student)

Prepare those materials for visa application:

When you receive the Chinese visa, please make sure that the embassy or consulate returns the Admission Notice and JW202 Form page 3 (the yellow page) to you. These are important documents which you will need to submit to the Shanghai Exit-Entry Bureau for residence permit.

3. Dormitory Reservation

5. China Entry Date

It is highly recommended that you enter China 2-3 days before the registration date. If earlier than one week, you would find no staff working on campus. The life and study orientation from SEIEE would always be in the first week after registration date, and all courses would start from first week, so coming to late would miss those oppotunities.
