Visa Invitation Service (UK to China) 

CBBC can provide an invitation letter which will enable you to apply for a single or double entry Business Visa for entry into the People’s Republic of China. (We are currently unable to offer multiple entry visa letters).

Select Business Scheme and Select Business Scheme UK (China to UK) 

Two schemes are available to corporate members of CBBC. Reflecting the organisation’s status as a trusted partner of UKVI, we have been recognised as one of only two organisations (the other is the CBI) whose corporate members have the automatic right to join these schemes. 

Select Business Scheme (SBS)

Streamlines application process for Chinese staff of member companies with China presence

Select Business Scheme UK (SBS UK)

Streamlines application process for Chinese partners (i.e. non-employees) invited on business by UK companies 

The two schemes have very similar names, but different functions. Documents from UKVI with full procedures of SBS can be downloaded here in English and Chinese. Terms and conditions of SBS UK at this link. Please contact SelectBusiness.Beijing@fco.gov.uk for further details on how to apply for the scheme. 

As many members will be aware, UKVI has launched a number of schemes in recent years to improve and tailor the visa service available for Chinese (and other) visitors to the UK. These include: 

  • Priority Visa Scheme 

  • Super Priority Visa Scheme 

  • VIP Mobile Scheme 

More details are available online about these other schemes by clicking these links in Chinese and English 

Translation & Interpretation 

CBBC provide a trusted translation and interpretation service – supporting hundreds of companies and individuals to localise marketing materials, business cards, brochures, company profiles and websites for a Chinese audience.  
 
Interpreters 

Via its extensive network across China, CBBC can provide qualified interpreters for companies visiting China. Interpreter services require booking at least one week in advance.
