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.

To save yourself and your close friend the hassle, have us handle Chinese visa application for you. We have been helping applicants apply for all types of Chinese visas for the past 22 + years. As a registered agency with the Chinese Embassy visa office, we can make the Chinese visa application process smoother and easier. We will preview your application material and help screen for any inadequacies on your Chinese visa application form or supporting documents. If there are any hiccups during the evaluation process, we can relay the issue on hand and offer advice on how to resolve the issue.

Since our office is located in the next building from the Chinese visa office’s lobby, we can say our efficiency is probably the highest in terms of Chinese visa submission or helping in resolving any issues. For people that are needs a Chinese visa in a rush, we can submit the expedited Chinese visa application request on the same day if we get the application materials before the visa offices closes.

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.
