How Do South Africans Come Back to China?
« on: February 03, 2022, 02:10:49 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Several of my friends from South Africa are begging me to come back to China.

Can anything be done to help them?

As far as I understand, borders are closed, even for the politically connected people.

If they don't already have a valid visa or res permit, the only way in is to apply for a new visa.  This is true no matter what country someone is from and has been true for many decades.  The difference is:

Visas are currently much harder to get, but not 100% impossible.  If it's going to be a Z visa, the hiring organization will have more paperwork to do on their end than would have been the case in 2019.

I have a personal suspicion that visas will be even harder to get until the Olympics are over.
