The Dependent (Q) Visa




The Dependent visa is designed for Chinese descendants or foreigners who are spouses of Chinese citizen. Issued to those who are immediate family members of Chinese citizens or of foreigners with Chinese permanent residence and intend to go for China for family reunion or to those who intend to go to China for the purpose of foster care. It is usually issued for 1 entry with duration of 000 stay (to be determined). This then has to be converted at the local Public Security Bureau (PSB Police Station), who will then have the final say at the duration of the visa.

If applied whilst in China you will often receive the exact duration right away, without the need to visit the PSB. There are two types of Q visa with Q1 for long-term over 180 days and Q2 for short-term under 180 days. Q1 visas are not guaranteed and may require additional interviews. Exit-Entry Bureau/Chinese Consulate may issue Q2 visa at their discretion. Immediate family members refers to spouses, parents, sons daughters, spouses of sons or daughters, brothers sisters, grandparents, grandsons, granddaughters and parents-in-law.
