Apply for a China Travel Visa

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 form?

Every U.S. Citizen/landed immigrant wishing to 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.
