"Visa Appplication" China Favorite Tip by FreeCloud

China General: 365 reviews and 336 photos

Favorite thing: Americans need to apply for a Visa to visit China. Nowadays you have to either apply in person, or let your friends, or hire an agency to aplly for you: mailing application is gone.

For latest info on Visa application requirement, visit P.R. China's embassy official website:

Fondest memory: We found this visa agency in Houston:

Despite that Chinese Embassy website says that one has to apply visa at the 'LOCAl' Chinese Embassy/Consulate (see details in the website above), depends upon where one lives, visa agencies seem to have no problem so far getting visa for people from other area (i.e., a New York agency can help to obtain visa at the Chinese NYC Consulate for a resident in Texas).
