VISA PAPERWORK

Please note that if you do not hold a Chinese passport, very likely you will need to apply for an entry visa to visit China. Please consult your travel agent or visit the website of the Chinese Embassy or Consulates in your country.

It might be easier and quicker if you apply for a tourist visa. In that case, you do not need any paper work from IV’18.

If you do need a formal invitation letter from IV’18 as part of your visa application, please pay special attention whether an “Invitation Letter from Duly Authorized Unit (DAU)” is required.

If a DAU letter is required, please notify us by email at reg_iv18@126.com right away, as it might take up to 3 weeks to obtain such a letter.

If a regular invitation on the host institute’s (the Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences) letterhead suffices, please email us at reg_iv18@126.com. In your email, please provide the following information.
