One of the first obstacles for coming to China is to obtain a visa. ICL helps you navigate the different possibilities and will advise you on the best choice according to your situation, no matter the duration of your stay. We will also support you through the whole application process to make sure you obtain the adequate visa.
ICL welcomes you in Shanghai at the airport as soon as you arrive. The one-hour drive from the airport to your hotel/apartment is a great opportunity for us to get to know you and start answering all the questions you may have.
We supply you with a basic phone and a SIM card with a Chinese number and credit to make sure you will always have an extra phone to contact us. In addition, we also help you choose the right provider and internet subscription for your Smartphone.
You will spend your first two nights in a comfortable hotel, well located for apartment visits. We will take the first two days to see a few selected apartments before choosing the place you prefer for the rest of your stay.
If you are staying more than 3 months, we accompany you to a local bank to open an account where you can receive foreign currency and change it into Chinese Yuan (RMB). It is the most convenient way to diminish withdrawal fees from your foreign account and facilitate daily payments.
Foreigners must register at a local police station within 24 hours after their entry (except for those living in hotels or university dorms). ICL handles this process on your behalf.
We organize events and parties at least once a month for you to meet new people and make relevant contacts in Shanghai.
In your first weeks in Shanghai, you may go through hassles that require Chinese language to solve, no matter if it relates to accommodation, leisure, food, money or health. Whenever you require assistance or have questions, you can reach ICL, every day by phone or Wechat and we are ready to help. At night and in weekends, you will also be provided with an emergency number.
We highly encourage you to live with other people in a shared apartment, though living alone is also possible. Our selected apartments are all furnished, well located and have easy access to transportation, daily needs, sport centers and social life. To see some pictures of our selected apartments click here.
As soon as you arrive in China, we give you all the information about reliable health institutes in the city. We recommend you to subscribe to an international health insurance that covers your stay in China. If you do not have one already, we can recommend a few. We are always available for further help.

I spent an amazing 5 months in Shanghai and was able to transfer my credits back to my home university in Mexico when I came back.
I came to China the first time when I was 17 and lived for 6 months in Yiwu before deciding to move to Shanghai for Business Degree program.
I came from Mexico to discover China and learn about the people and the culture. I signed up for a four year Bachelor Degree in Shanghai
