Getting there: Although Nanjing has an international airport, there are limited flights there from the United States. You may also fly to Shanghai, Hong Kong, or Beijing and take a connecting flight into Nanjing. China also has a fairly extensive railway system if you prefer to fly into another city and then take the train to Nanjing. Program participants are entirely responsible for arrangement and payment of all travel to and from the program site(s).
Documents required: For all students, a valid passport and a visa will be required. All participants are also responsible for obtaining a travel visa to enter into China. Information regarding travel visas will be provided to students who are accepted into the program. Passports must be valid for a minimum of six months past your entry date into China.
U.S. States Department Information: Check for travel advisories and safety updates on the U.S. State Department website. Additional information about China may be found in the Consular Information Sheet for China.
"Whittier's China trip was not only educational, it was an eye-opening exploration of culture, and a ridiculous amount of fun."
