Visa Information

All students who are not Chinese citizens must apply for a visa to enter and study in China. ¬†For detailed instructions on how to apply for your visa, please visit the BU Study Abroad website for your program-specific pre-departure forms. If you’re considering studying abroad in China, please make sure that you already have a valid passport or take steps to get one now. It can take a while to process a visa to enter China, and you can’t apply for a visa without a passport.
