To enter the People's Republic of China, you will need a visa. Inbound exchange students normally hold X2 visas.
To apply for an X2 visa, you will need a JW202 Form (issued by the Education Committee of Shanghai Government) and an invitation letter issued by CEIBS. CEIBS will assist all inbound students with the documents. You can then apply for visa from the local Chinese embassy.
Hong Kong, Macao or Taiwan Students
Hong Kong or Macao students can use Mainland Travel Permit for Hong Kong and Macao Residents instead of applying for a visa.
Taiwan students can use Mainland Travel Permit for Taiwan Residents as well.
There are two international airports in Shanghai: Pudong Airport (PVG) and Hongqiao Airport (SHA). Click here for Details on how to get to CEIBS from the airports.
