Health Examination

A health examination is required for students holding an X Visa, that is 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).

X Visa holders need to pass the health examination in order to get a Health Certificate from the Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, which then allows the X Visa holder to obtain a Residence Permit. You can take the health examination in your own country or in Beijing. Once you have pass the health examination, PRC Study will assist you through the rest of the procedure.

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. If you decide to this, PRC Study will offer you guidance. The examination should be attended on an empty stomach and the results are normally received within 3 to 5 days after the check-up. The examination fee is about RMB 350. Those who pass the examination, and when confirmed by the Beijing Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, will receive a Health Certificate for a fee of RMB50. Again this is a procedure that PRC Study will assist you with.
