With assistance from Ohio State’s China Gateway office and the China Travel Guide, visits to China can be made easy for members of the Ohio State community traveling on university business. The China Travel Guide serves as an information toolkit for faculty and staff to better understand the international travel process, learn about the local culture and obtain the most out of a business trip to China. The guide provides information about arrangements for pre-departure and post-arrival, how to select the appropriate visa and insight into the local Chinese culture. Learn more about the China Gateway and how it can facilitate focused networking, targeted recruitment and support for scholarly work abroad.
