Register on the spot

  • When registering in person, candidates must bring two recent 30 x 40 mm photos (without headwear) and present one piece of photo identification, such as a passport or a residence permit.
  • After registering, every candidate will get an admission ticket and a handbook about the HSK. Candidates should arrive at the site before the time specified on your admission ticket.

Register by mail

Candidates living where there are no local test centers may register by mail. Applications must be sent to the test center by registered mail at least one week before the final registration deadline and enclose a photocopy of an official piece of identification, a resume (including Chinese and English names, sex, nationality, and date of birth), a detailed mail address, and two recent 30 x 40 mm photos (without headwear). In addition, fees for the test and registration must be sent to the registration site by mail. Telephone registration is not accepted. The admission ticket will be given to the candidate in person upon his or her arrival at the testing site.
