Passport and Visa Mailing Tips

After dedicating numerous hours to your application, receiving the green light to send us your documents marks a significant milestone in your visa journey. This progress is indeed commendable, and we are eager to offer some valuable tips to help ensure a smooth and trouble-free transit for your package.

First and foremost, we strongly advise against using postal services for shipping. Over the years, we have encountered instances of delayed and misplaced packages when relying on the postal office. While USPS is often a cost-effective and convenient choice in many regions, it is important to exercise caution when sending passports or when time sensitivity is a concern. In such cases, it is highly recommended to opt for trusted carriers such as FedEx Express, UPS Express, or UPS Ground to ensure the secure and timely delivery of your vital documents.

We have built a strong and positive relationship with FedEx over the past two decades, and as a result, we enthusiastically recommend using their services, particularly FedEx Express Overnight or FedEx 2nd Day.

While UPS Express and UPS Ground also offer excellent services, it is worth noting that we have occasionally received packages in less-than-ideal conditions. If you plan to utilize UPS for your shipment, we strongly urge you to employ a sturdy, high-quality envelope and ensure it is securely sealed. It is imperative not to use manila envelopes for shipping especially crucial documents, as the rigors of the UPS conveyor belt can subject them to significant wear and tear.

For less critical items that can be easily replaced or reproduced, FedEx Ground and Home Delivery may be suitable options. However, please be aware that these services are provided by third-party contractors, which may not consistently uphold the same level of service quality as FedEx Express.

USPS, on the other hand, can be a reliable choice in many areas and regions. We are more than willing to accommodate your preference for shipping back your passport and visa using the Postal Office. Nevertheless, we strongly discourage using USPS when sending packages to our office containing passports. If your shipment consists of only a few pieces of paper and you are not under time constraints, USPS remains a viable and cost-effective choice. Your convenience and peace of mind are our top priorities throughout this important process.

China Visa Services by Mail

The embassy has not been reopened for long, and there have been various issues with the new appointment system and the COVA form system. We may not be able to directly share all of these situations with the applicant, but we will do our utmost to assist with the application process.

To ensure a smooth visa application process and minimize any potential issues, we will spend a considerable amount of time and effort assisting applicants with reviewing forms and organizing document submissions.

Step 3: Oasis logs in to your COVA form, checks the basic materials, and then performs an evaluation.

During the process of checking your COVA form, we will make an assessment based on the information in your form and supporting documents.  If we are able to assist you with your visa application, we will charge you the relevant fee and guide you through the process of modifying your COVA form and mailing the required documents to our office.  If we determine that we are unable to assist you with your visa application, your credit card will not be charged any fees.

Step 4: Oasis will do the final inspection after receiving the materials you sent, and then help to make an appointment and submit them.

If we find any issues after receiving the materials, we will promptly contact the applicant to make supplementary or corrective measures.

“免费”签证说明

All 10 years visas are reinstated, th contents of this page no longer applies.

因10年签证已经恢复, 该页面内容不再适用。

根据使馆发言人的记者问答公告, 我们对于相关信息做出以下的解读:

对于之前曾经办理过十年有效的、探亲或者商务签证的申请人, 有两个选择:
For applicants who have obtained a ten-year visa that is still valid, there are two options:

选择 1 :您可以 办理免除$140使馆申请费的、六个月有效的、两次入境探亲(或商务)签证。 您之前颁发的10年签证不被取消, 日后激活后可以继续使用。
Option 1: You can apply for a new six-month, two-entry family visit (or business) visa that waives the $140 embassy application fee.  Your previously issued 10-year visa will not be cancelled, and can continue to be used after activation in the future.

选择2:    您可以办理新的10年有效、多次往返的探亲(或商务)签证;使馆收取$140的申请费, 您之前颁发的10年签证会被取消。
Option 2: You can apply for a new 10-year valid, multiple-entry visit visa; the embassy charges an application fee of $140, and your previously issued 10-year visa will be cancelled.

如果您持有的是L字的旅游签证, 您不符合选择1的要求。

Option 1 doesn’t apply to Tourism Visa holders.
