International students have been stranded out of China due to COVID-19 since January 2020. But 2022 proved fortunate for International students.
International Students started moving back to China on special conditions.
A number of groups of students from Russia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Pakistan were moved to China in previous months. A group of 91 students moved back to China on the 19th of China.
According to the latest news, the COVID-19 condition in China is getting better and different Chinese universities have started sending emails to international students to return to China.
However, universities have mentioned some conditions for international students to follow strictly. Universities are asking for the willingness of the students to travel on their own expenditures.
Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunication sent a letter to CSC (Chinese Government Scholarship) scholarship students who are outside of China.
The letter description is given below:
“Dear CSC scholarship students outside China, Hope this letter finds you well.
