China Visa for U.S. Citizens

If your trip itinerary involves traveling to mainland China, you have no option but to get a China visa. This document permits you to enter and leave the country and shows you have met the Chinese visa requirements. However, getting a visa is not important if you fall into the following categories:

  • You are transiting through mainland China and will not stay within the boundaries long enough to be considered a tourist,
  • You are part of a travel group visiting Hainan Province, and the group has a permit from the China National Tourism Administration to go ahead with the tour,
  • You have a foreigner’s permanent residence card or a foreign residence card issued by the Ministry of Public Security,
  • You are visiting the Pearl River Delta region for six or fewer days and are part of a travel group led by a Hong Kong or Macau travel agency, or
  • You have a business APEC card which is still valid.

If you do not fall into the above categories, you need to know how to get a Chinese visa for U.S. citizens. Luckily, getting an expedited visa service is easy once you compile the required documents.


Expedited China Visa Service

Our expedited China visa service focuses on convenience and thus offers the following perks:

  • Flexibility: Instead of offering a one-size-fits-all solution, our services caters to travelers with different timelines. It ranges from a few days to weeks, and you can choose what China visa processing time best aligns with your travel itinerary.
  • Consultation: We understand that gauging what Chinese visa for U.S. citizens to get is a challenging task. Our agents guide you on what each option entails and advise you on the best option.
  • Compliance: Not only will we ensure that you have compiled all the required documents, but we will also review them for accuracy. We leave no stone unturned and will also ensure that your passport photo is per the China visa photo requirements.
  • Convenience: You can apply for the visa services from the comfort of your home thanks to our seamless online ordering system!

We also offer passport and translation services. You can meet all your needs under one roof as you apply for China visa.


Visa Application for China

The general application process for a visa follows these steps:

  • You determine the Chinese visa best for your trip. In some cases, you may not even need a visa. Thus, reviewing your travel needs and purposes is important.
  • You compile all the documents needed to process the visa, ticking off those in groups A and B.
  • You book an appointment at the embassy or consulate in your state and attend the appointment.
  • You get a response after a few weeks and collect your visa if your application is successful.

Of course, other visa applications may be less or more involving, depending on the visa type.


China Visa Types

Before processing a visa to China from USA, you should know the right type for your travel purpose. So, what China visa types are available?

  1. Visa Type L: This permit applies to people who want to embark on tourist activities in China. If you intend to work or conduct business, this visa type is unsuitable for you. The tourist visa has different validity periods, some of which are as short as 30 days, with others lasting 180 days. You can also get a multiple-entry 10-year visa. Even so, with this visa, you can only stay in China for up to 60 days at a time.
  2. Visa Type M: China is a great place to source products. This visa applies to people who want to travel to the mainland for commercial or trade reasons. To avoid getting in trouble with authorities, opt for this permit if you will also be touring the country as you trade. It has similar validity to that of the L visa type. And you can also get a 10-year multiple-entry visa if you plan to frequent the mainland.
  3. Visa Type F: While other countries may accept tourist visas for people on study trips, China does not. Thus, anyone who wants to participate in an exchange program, study at a university, or be part of an organizational event should use this permit.
  4. Visa Type Z: If you want to work in China as an employee, this is the right permit. It differs from visa type M regarding the rights accorded to visa holders. Thus, you should opt for this to ensure you enjoy employee perks.
  5. Visa Type S1: Suppose you have a family member working or studying in China on a permit and wish to visit them. You would need to get this visa as it allows you to stay with them for a period exceeding 180 days. Therefore, this is the best option for a long-term stay in China. Please note that family member refers to close relations, e.g., parents, children, siblings, spouses, etc. Other relations will not necessarily fall into this category.
  6. Visa Type S2: This visa type works like the S1 as it allows family members of foreign workers or students to visit them in China. However, unlike S1, it caps the duration of stay to 180 days. So, it is the best option for short-term visits.
  7. Visa Type Q1: If you have a family member with permanent residency in China, you can visit them under this permit. It allows you to visit them for reunion purposes, take care of them, or be under their care. You can remain in China for more than 180 days under this option.
  8. Visa Type Q2: This permit relates to visa type Q1. But unlike Q1, which allows you to remain in China for more than 180 days, this one caps the duration to 180 days and is thus suited for short stays.
  9. Visa Type R: People who boast high-level talents get this visa type.
  10. Visa Type C: If you are traveling to China to be part of a crew, this is the proper document for your travel.
  11. Visa Type XI: This study permit applies to students who will remain in the country for over 180 days. Thus, it works best for university students who will be in the country for years.
  12. Visa Type X2: This permit is a variation of the X1 and applies to people who will study in mainland China for fewer than 180 days.
  13. Visa Type D: Are you planning on moving to China and seeking permanent residence? This permit will suit your needs.
  14. Visa Type G: While some transits do not require visas, you may need to get a visa if you will transit for more than 48 hours. And this would be the right permit.

So, there you have it! These are all the visa types you can consider ahead of your journey. Please note that applying for the wrong type of Chinese visa for U.S. citizens can leave you stranded at immigration as the officers may refuse you entry. Please talk to our team if you need clarification on what visa is right for you. We will review your travel purpose and needs and advise you on the best option.


China Visa Cost

How much is a visa to China? The answer is not standard. Thanks to the opportunity to expedite a visa, you can choose how long you wait for your visa, ranging from a few days to weeks. And the timeline affects the applicable China visa fee, allowing you to tailor a package that best meets your needs. Moreover, you will pay a government China visa cost atop the price applicable to the visa.


China Visa Processing Time

How long does it take to get a China visa? If you follow the standard processes, you can wait weeks leading into months before you can get a visa. But as we all know, only a few people have the luxury of waiting this long. Besides, with the backlogs in these processes, only some are willing to wait indefinitely before getting their visas. That’s why we offer all our clients an expedited service. You can get your visa and embark on your travel plans in just days!


China Visa Photo Requirements

Your passport photo should comply with the following requirements:

  • It should meet the China visa photo size (4.8 cm by 4.8 cm),

  • An original and copy of a certificate showing your relationship with the relative, e.g., a birth certificate, and

Group B: General Documents

1. A Passport: You must have a valid passport to enter mainland China. Ensure your current passport meets the following conditions:

3. A Filled-Out Application Form: You must print the China visa application form and fill it in blue or black ink.
