Arriving in Shanghai

SBC organises an airport pickup service for all students arriving from outside China. On arrival you will be looked after by SBC’s excellent Student Management Department who will help you register with the police, take you for your medical and organise your residency permit. The process for getting a Chinese student visa can be started either in your home country or in Shanghai, but either way SBC will be happy to help you every step of the way.
