On September 2, 2021, the website of the Chinese Embassy in France issued a policy notice on adjusting the entry policy of French personnel into China. Compared with the previous national notices, this adjustment is only limited to French personnel, which means that as long as the French hold a residence permit for work, family reunion or private affairs within the validity period or hold a Chinese green card, you can go directly to China without PU invitation or www.
This is a good start. We believe the entry policy of other countries coming to China will adjust later step by step.
