Chinese visa application introduction

Thinking of visiting China or applying for a Chinese visa? Submitting a Chinese visa application no longer require an appointment, applicants can simply walk in to the visa office and que in line for a turn to submit the Chinese visa application.

Please give these question some thoughts since the Visa office/section of the China Embassy do not accept mailed in visa applications:

1. Do you want to or really need to make a trip to DC for your Chinese visa?

2. Is it worth the while to take 2 days off or 2 half days off work to make the trip?

3. Can a close friend or family member submit the Chinese visa application for you?

4. Can you or your “courier” spare 2 days or make two trips, one for the drop off and another for the pickup of the visa/passport?

5. Is it more cost efficient to submit the Chinese visa application in person or have another party submit it for you?

When considering the questions above, please be mindful of the following details:

• Chinese Visa applications must be filed/submitted by an individual or a registered Agent with the Visa section of the China Embassy.

• Individual here can be the applicant, or it could also be a friend, family, co-worker of the applicant.

• As long as the applicant have a clean background and does not have any complications, the Chinese visa application does not require in-person appearance.

The Chinese visa application procedure requires at least 2 trips:

• One trip to submit the passport and the application materials

• Another trip to pick up the passport.

• If certain core documents are missing, a third trip might be warranted.
➼But most of the time, missing document issue can be addressed by emailing it to a designated email address provided by the visa clerk.
➼But the downside to this is your application will take longer to be evaluated or processed.

• For each trip, be allocate a few hours or more at the Visa office unless you are the first couple people in line.

Lastly, do you feel comfortable sharing private details with the person doing the drop off for you? If the Chinese visa application form is not prepared adequately, the visa clerk will make inquiries on details such as employment history and your traveling itinerary. For applicants with Asian heritage, the Visa clerk will make some very detail inquired regarding the applicants and the applicant’s parent origins. Will the person have enough detail to answer these questions? If not, an additional trip probably will be needed.

“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.
