How do I
apply for a China Visa?
A China Visa is necessary for travel
to all parts of China from the United States. China
Visa applications can be obtained from most every passport
processing agency in America. China visa applications
are also available online and from the local SEATTLE, WA U.S. Post Office. Completed application
forms and required documentation can be submitted in
person or by mail. China visa application forms cannot
be submitted electronically.
Who is required to fill out a China visa application
Every U.S. Citizen/landed immigrant
travel to China must submit a China visa application.
No traveler, including business and pleasure travelers
as well as students, will be admitted to the country
without a China visa.
How far in advance should I apply for a China visa?
You cannot apply any further in advance
of your trip than three months. It is highly recommended
that you apply no later than three months in advance
of your intended departure date. The more time you can
allow for processing of your application, the better.
This will ensure than even if your visa application
is delayed in the mail, at the application center, or
the Chinese consular, you will still get your China
visa in time for your trip. If your trip is unexpected
and will be taking place in less than three months,
we can assist you by expediting the application process.
