Chinese F type Visa – For Whom?
F type visa will usually be single entry only. Academics will usually given F type visa (single/ double entry) but the purpose of visit must be “attending conference” or “giving a speech”. For “teaching” or “lecturing” in China, the Embassy will usually request for a “Foreign Expret License” issued by the PSB in mainland China as supporting documents (i.e. your Chinese counterpart will need to apply for “Foreign Expert License” for the applicant). The Embassy will confirm the invitation (e.g. entry/ exit dates, purpose of visit, details of traveller) by contacting the Chinese counterpart (via phone/ Email). If the information provided was inconsistent then the Embassy is likely to reject the visa application.
