On 1/24/2015, a Consular Officer from the United States Consulate General in Chengdu will be in Chongqing to provide limited consular services, including applications for passport renewal, additional passport visa pages, and notaries. Please note that initial passport applications for someone who has never been issued a U.S. passport will not be accepted. There are a limited number of available slots for each visit, so appointments must be reserved ahead of time. Please include your full name and which specific service(s) you require. We will send to you an email confirmation with the time, location, and our contact information for that day.
For some of these services, your supplemental materials may have to be brought to Chengdu for processing. If this is the case, they can be returned to you via local Chinese EMS mailing service. Please note that mailing through EMS is done at your own risk, as we cannot guarantee EMS service. Alternatively, you or a person you designate can come to pick up your documents at the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu during regularly scheduled ACS hours: Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.
To use the EMS mailing service, you must bring your address (in Chinese). The EMS fees are listed below and can be paid to EMS upon return of your new passport:
- Passport renewed 1 envelope RMB30
