Applying for a Visa in China can be difficult and awkward, especially if you’ve not done it before. We help take the strain away by providing you with regular support.
When you arrive in Shanghai to study or intern, there will be a lot of challenges ahead.
In your first week, getting over your jetlag will just be the first hurdle. Every newcomer in Shanghai needs to go through some practical steps too, before they can feel properly settled in the city.
For example, there are certain laws here to do with getting a mobile SIM card and registering your temporary address with the authorities.
Looking back at when we were new arrivals ourselves, we know how valuable it is to have someone to help you with some of these tricky procedures – especially when you’re still learning the language.
With these kits and services we aim to relieve the stress and let you concentrate on what you came here to do – learn, and have fun!
Please note that kits and services must be booked before your arrival in China. It is not possible to add them after your program has started.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
SURVIVAL KIT – How will I meet my driver at the Airport?
Despite the sizeable nature of Shanghai Airport there’s nothing to fear!
When you pass through arrivals there’s a good chance there will be a whole number of Chinese people.
Thankfully your driver will be fully prepared with your name on a sheet of card, he’ll also be aware of what you look like so you’ll be in the car in no time.
SURVIVAL KIT – What should I bring to School with my on my first day?
The only real requirement, bar yourself of course, is your passport. Anything else, you are welcome to bring along such as your laptop, other study materials, snacks or lunch etc.
Remember your study materials are provided by LTL but if you have your own then do feel free to bring them.
CONNECTION KIT – Who are the two people?
We choose both people based on their background, age and interests.
How well you connect with a person always depends on the two of you of course.
Having two people is better than one so hopefully you manage to strike up a bond with them.
CONNECTION KIT – When do I meet my language exchange partner and student ambassador?
We will invite you for a meal together with your language exchange partner and student ambassador at the start of your time in China. You can get to know each other and plan out some future activities.
