Recently many people have been concerned about what documents can be simplified for visa applications after receiving vaccinations made in China and whether a PU invitation letter is still required. In this regard, we have inquiry emails to Chinese embassies around the world and have received official responses.
The following is a summary of the contents of the email from SFBC.
If you have received the Chinese vaccination and have a certificate of inoculation, the requirements for visa application are basically the same as those before the pandemic and you can apply for a business visa on the basis of a corporate invitation without the need for a PU invitation letter.
However, there is currently no place in Japan where you can inoculate the Chinese vaccine, so you can go to other places where the Chinese vaccine can be inoculated.
If you have been vaccinated and have the certificate of vaccination, you do not need to provide a PU invitation letter when re-applying, and in addition to the usual documents, you need to prepare,the following when applying.
1.Certificate of vaccination
2.A scanned copy of passport
3.If it is not a French passport, a valid proof of residence is required
4.Application with the passport number, name of the applicant, vaccination unit and dates of 2 inoculations.
No official notification has been received regarding the entry with vaccination or abbreviated documentation. A PU invitation letter is still required to obtain a business visa.
That's all we've received so far, and if you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us.
