1.Foreign nationals and their family members coming to China for resuming their work in various fields only need to provide the documents required before the COVID-19 pandemic when applying for a visa.

3. Holders of valid APEC business travel cards may apply for the M visa by presenting the original valid APEC business travel card and the invitation letter issued by the inviting party in China.
