How to apply for a PU letter?

Only companies can apply for the PU Letter for their foreign employees, individuals or any agents cannot apply for PU letter!

Companies need to contact the district foreign affairs officer, submit the application materials, and wait for the approval.

After the PU letter is issued, the company should send it to the foreign applicant.

The foreign applicant then takes it to the Chinese Consulate/Embassy in his/her country to apply for a new visa.


As mentioned above, only companies can apply for the PU Letter on behalf of their foreign employees.

Any individuals or agents cannot apply for or provide PU letters! (Agents can only assist the company with the application, but they can't provide PU letters.)

If any individuals or agents promise to get you a PU letter without cooperation from your company, they are definitely lying or getting it ILLEGALLY!
