To our valued clients ordering Chinese visas, processing times are far greater than those posted on our site this is due to the volume of applications at the Embassy and Consulates. Processing times are currently 2 to 6 weeks weeks depending on your jurisdiction. Please Note: Our New York Office currently does not have any extended wait times.
The Chinese Embassy and Consulates-General in the U.S. will no longer accept same category visa applications with 10-year multi-entry visas still valid for more than six months. Applicants may choose to apply for compensated visas after the expiration of their original ones.
As an ongoing consequence of the global pandemic actual visa processing is typically taking longer than the usual times published here even in some instances where there is an option for the payment of higher consular fees for expedited processing. If you have a particularly tight departure please send us a note at [email protected] at the time you create your order to confirm it can reasonably be fulfilled in the current environment otherwise please just be aware of the possibility of delayed processing.
If you cancel your order after we have submitted your documents to a Consulate for processing there will be a $35.00 cancellation fee and your consular fees may not be refundable. Please do NOT contact consulates directly for status or with instructions once your documents have been submitted unless they contact you as this can cause processing to be delayed or declined.
