4 Urgent Things You Need to Do Immediately After You Arrive in China
In general, the new term begins in September, and now many international students have already arrived in the university and begin to register. But we find that although some students arrived in China safely, they could not go to university to register directly, they got some problems. To help other students avoid such things happen again, here listed 4 urgent things you need to do before you leave the airport, please keep in mind.
As you may know, tuition fee, accommodation fee, living expenses and so on, all the fees you will spend in China must pay in RMB. So before you plan to come to China, you had better exchange your local currency into RMB and bring some cash with you. Maybe you do not know it is difficult to exchange currency in China, you can exchange currency on the condition of opening an account in the bank which has a limited quota. If you need a large amount, you shall make an appointment in advance. So once you forget, we highly suggest you finish it in the bank counter or self-service exchange machine before you leave the airport.
Maybe you want to get to university earlier and finish the register procedures successfully, so you book your flight ticket very early. But one thing you may ignore is that if you arrive in China at weekends, on holiday or even in the midnight which is not working hours, then you can not register in the university as well as move into accommodation. What you need to do is booking a hotel until you can go to university. Please be noted not all hotels accept international students, you should book a four-star or more hotel.
Another one important thing you must do is to tell your parents you have arrived in China Safely. As in China, you can not contact your parents by using your local mobile phone card, you can buy a new China mobile phone card, contact them and keep in touch with them.
WeChat is a popular app in China. We not only use it to communicate with others, but also to pay fees when needed. Due to you will live in China for a long time, you shall download WeChat app to contact your teachers, your classmates or your roommates. Once you get used to it, you will find it is extremely useful and convenient.
