TRAVEL to Zhenjiang.

The Ross/Asia Travel Plan provides advice for traveling to the Jiangsu Aviation Technical College in Zhenjiang:

  • Visa Information

Participants who are not Chinese citizens will need a valid passport from their home country, and a Chinese visa. Here are 3 documents providing instructions and advice on how to apply for an appropriate visa:

The visa application form section 2.6 asks for your “Itinerary in China.” It’s best to leave that blank and email your partially completed PDF form to Jerry Xiao jxiao@renashall.com. He will proofread your entries, insert the appropriate itinerary, and mail it back to you.

Each participant’s fee pays for room and board (college dorm room and cafeteria meals), and all instructional costs. Payment options are described in the Payment Instructions document below.
