Learn Chinese in China

Waiting for invitation letter


Recommended Posts



I have sent my documents to my employer in China and am now waiting for them to receive the invitation letter and send it to me to that I can apply for the z visa at the embassy here. I was wondering how long it will take them to have it ready? It has only been about 8 days since they made the application on their end, but I am slightly anxious as my departure date is the second week in Feb.

To apply for a Z visa, you need to have both Employment license and Z visa invitation letter. To get an employment license, it takes 2 weeks. And it takes another 1 week to get the Z invitation letter. It is the official time without any delay. Thus it can be longer.
