DC Chinese Embassy Change in Visa Processing Policy

America World would like to inform families in the China program who are in or nearing the travel stage that there has been a change in the Visa processing policy at the DC Chinese Embassy.  Effective immediately, families must submit their visa application to the Visa Office of the Embassy or Consulate-General which has consular jurisdiction over that family’s resident state.  This means that the DC Chinese Embassy will only be processing Visa application for the following states:

  • Washington DC
  • Delaware
  • Idaho
  • Kentucky
  • Maryland
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • West Virginia
  • Wyoming
