VISA for my son born in China

Hi friends.

To put my case in short...I am an Indian working and living in Chins for past 4 years. My wife is Chinese and we have been married for 1 year now. We have a nine month old son. I have got him registered as an Indian and he has an Idian passport issued by the Indian Embassy in Beijing.

Next year I want to take my family to India. Visa for my wife is no problem, but for my son I have no idea what to do. People here say that for going out of China I need one single trip/exit visa for my son as he is still a Chinese (being born in China). And while returning I will need to apply a visa for him as he will be treated as a foreigner then.

I want to know how to apply for his visa in India and what sort of documents are required. Also I need to know how long will this take in Delhi. I am really worried that if it takes long time then i may get stuck in India which I do not want. I will have only 20 days in hand while in India.

Please help !!

If your infant son has an Indian passport, why would he need a visa? He doesn't need any visa to get into one's own country.

Does China confer automatic citizenship to those born there and does it recognise dual citizenship? Does your kid need a exit permit to leave China? I don't know.

If you are in Delhi, it is no problem. You will get your visa in four days (or less if you take rush service). Whole procedure is explained here:

http://www.visaforchina.org/DEL_EN/

Take the step-by-step guidance on the website.

Now I don't know what visa your son needs, but I have always taken tourist visa and it is straight-forward.

China and India are the same, they never recognize dual citizenship. But when one or both parents of a child is a chinese and the baby born in china, the baby automatically gets chinese citizenship because china govt has something called baby license which is used by the local govt to the girl to legitimately born baby in china (this should be get by every chinese girl to born baby in china immediately) which itself authorizes that the baby can be a chinese citizen automatically. In order to relinquish the citizenship, the chinese parent should write to their govt saying that they don't need chinese citizen ship and get NOC certificate. This NOC should be submitted to the indian embassy to get indian citizenship. Then after wards one can get child indian passport. So Child doesn't need a visa since he has indian passport and China already issued NOC to relinquish child citizenship in china.

Thanks guys for your replies. But I was told by my office secretary here in China that he needs some sort of permit to leave China for the first time even if he holds an Indian PP and going to India. I also did not understand neither could she explain it better. Anyways now I have asked my wife also to check it.

HI guys,

I am back with the same old query of mine again. Regarding visa or single exit/entry document for my son. I want to go to India for a month in in 2014 January end. But I am still not clear as to what documents my son would need for a streamlined exit and entry from and to China. People are still saying that for Chinese government point of view he is still an India (although he has Indian PP issued by Indian embassy in Beijing). Can anyone please help me. This is really getting crazy now.

SOS !!!!

Well there is no typo here. And I can understand why you think it is because it is so confusing.....I will write again:

1. My son born in China
2. Got a birth certificate issued in Chinese & English
3. I used this certificate and other relevant doc to apply for his Indian passport.
4. Indian embassy issued him a passport and a new birth certificate for use in india and kept the original hospital certificate with them.

So, I consider him an Indian now as he has been issued with a valid Indian PP.

Now I want to go to India for a month. Now I do not know whether he needs visa to come back to China or not.

People here are saying that as he is born in China he is treated as a Chinese still and he would need a singly exit/entry visa while leaving for India. And I was thinking that he has an Indian PP so he does not require any visa for atleast going to India for coming he may need it.

Now I'm totally confused !!!

Any help !!

If the son has an Indian passport, he does not require anything to enter India (though he may need something to leave China). Once in India he will require a visa or some other document to go back to China.

Not legal advise, but please read this carefully.

If this is the current law of china,
http://www.china.org.cn/english/Livi...ina/184710.htm

you may have made your kid an indian citizen, by getting an indian passport. Which means there will be need for a chinese entry visa (or exit visa if that is relevant).

you probably have a problem right now, with the kid being in china without a visa?

Read the last question/answer in this page. Don't know if you can get this while in china, or need to be out, and go in once it is approved (i have not read the link)

Hi Guys, Im an Indian and have a Chinese wife and we have only registered our marriage in china and not in India. now me and my wife are living in china since we got married, and now we are planning to live in India for some years. and I don't know how to get a long term visa for my wife. And we have still not registered our marriage in India.

Can my wife get an Entry Visa on the basis of our china marriage certificates and before our marriage registration in India? If yes can my wife extend her entry visa on the basis of our china marriage certificates?

And one last thing, How many times my wife can get an Entry visa repeatedly?? Suppose if she gets 1 year visa now and later again come back to china and apply will she get it?

Thanks guys in advance for ur valuable time and advice.

Steven if you have been married for 2 years already then you can apply for OCI card for your Chinese wife. It takes around three months to be in your hand. OCI card is Overseas Citizen of India card...it is like life long visa for our spouses...you never ever have to worry about visa and stay time....you can visit indian embassy site for more info on OCI card....go for it...
