A health examination is required for students holding an X Visa for those studying in China for more than 6 months. (F visa holders studying for less than 6 months do not need to undergo this test).
Health Examination in Your Own Country
If you are examined in your home country, the exam must take place in a public hospital within 6 months before coming to China. The check-up form must:
· Be the same as that used in China (obtained from the Chinese Embassy)
· Contain your photo
· Bear the hospital's official stamp
· Include doctor's signature in section containing results of examination, with the original laboratory test reports attached
Health Examination in Beijing
You may also undergo the physical examination after you arrive in Beijing. Those who pass the examination, and when confirmed by the Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, will receive a Health Certificate. This is a procedure that your school will assist you with.
