Last week, the Foreign Affairs Office of Guangzhou Municipal Government (GZFAO) has issued the Notice on Inviting Foreigners to Work in China Amid COVID-19 Pandemic, introducing the new measures about invitation letter.
In order to further promote the resumption of work, production and study, all types of enterprises and educational institutions in the city which need foreign managerial and technical staff, teachers and their family members coming to China can apply for the invitation letter issued by the provincial FAO.
After receiving the letter, foreigners mentioned above can apply for a visa at the Chinese embassy or consulate general in their current location.
Previously, the government only issued the invitation letter to foreigners who are engaged in necessary economic, trade, scientific or technological activities. Now as the government has eased the restrictions, more and more foreigners are allowed to come to Guangzhou.
