This past Wednesday, CIS is honoured to welcome two guests to our campus for a nice visit: Officer Guo and Officer Zhang from Guangzhou Departure and Entry Department. Ms. Winnie Chen, Chairwoman of CIEO, Mr. Howard Stribbell, International Education Director of CIEO, Mr. Gary Rehman, Principal of CIS, Ms. Joyce Francis, COO of CIS, and our foreign affairs office all joined the meeting.
CIS community has staff and student families from over 40 countries, our foreign affairs office have been working close with the city Departure and Entry Department. Since the pandemic, we are lucky and grateful to have their full support on all our foreign staff and families’ safety and any issue with their visa/official documents. It takes a great amout of collaboration for us to be back to the new normal and have CIS family reunited again for another exciting school year. All these won’t be possible without the hard work and support from Guangzhou Departure and Entry Department, Guangzhou Education Bureau, and Guangzhou Association for International Exchange of Personnel.
During the visit, Officer Guo and Officer Zhang kindly asked about the current situation of CIS staff and students, and explained to us the most updated border policies for people with foreign identity. With their support, some of our overseas teaching staff are already planning their way back to Guangzhou, and we’re seeing more to come!
Thank you again to Guangzhou Departure and Entry Department, CIS is honoured and thankful for your support.
