The personnel who holds the certificate for buyers at the third CIIE and passes the personal information review can apply for revalidation of the certificate online if the information on the certificate remains unchanged (including name, affiliation, trade mission or trade sub-mission, personnel label, photo, and date of entrance).
Buyers who meet the requirements for certificate revalidation can click “registered buyer of the previous CIIE” when signing up on the official website, and the system will automatically pop up the affiliation information. Buyers should follow steps to complete personal information, select “registered buyer of the previous CIIE” and click “certificate revalidation”, then wait for the trade mission to review affiliation information. After passing the review, buyers need to pay the fees following the system prompt. Please make sure that the certificate to be revalidated is not lost or damaged.
