Effective immediately, foreign nationals who hold valid China residence permits (categories of work, private affairs and family reunion) from UK are permitted to return to China without applying for a new visa. That means the above foreigners do not need to secure a PU letter to return to China.

For enquiries on specific needs and requirements, please contact Newland Chase – FSG at:
