Obtaining a Chinese Crew Visa

If you expect to have team members operating international transportation within the borders of China — including aircraft, trains, ships and motor vehicles — you will need to obtain a China crew visa. This documentation is crucial for organizations that serve customers in this country.

Applications must be submitted to a Chinese embassy or consulate. This can be done either in-person, through an agency or online. The typical processing time can take more than six business days, although expedited service may be available for an additional fee. Once the requirements have been met and the visa is approved, your drivers, pilots and associated crew members will be free to work in the Chinese market.

One Source Process took good care of me! Their personal care and attention to detail is hard to find! I was dealing with a deadline for a Visa and in dire need for help understanding the process. I tried several other companies with no luck but once One Source Process took over, it was stress free. They made everything so easy by helping me understand the process and communicating with me along each step. I met my Visa deadline no problem. I am so appreciative and I recommend them to you!
