American Citizen Service in Kunming

On March 26, 2016, a Consular Officer from the United States Consulate General in Chengdu will be in Kunming to provide limited consular services, including applications for passport renewal and notaries.  Please note that initial passport applications for someone who has never been issued a U.S. passport will not be accepted.  As a reminder, effective January 1, 2016, the consulate no longer offers a service to add extra visa pages to U.S. passports.  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 you an email confirmation with the time, location, and our contact information for that day.

Please note the Consular Officer will have no change available and cannot keep any overpayment, so exact change is required.  Fees are listed below (no fee for document pickup and inquiry):

Passport Book Renewal – Adult (over 16 years old): $110.00 / ¥726
Passport Book Renewal – Minor (under 16 years old): $105.00 / ¥693
Notarial and Marriageability Services: $50.00 / ¥330

Please bring originals and photocopies of all documents and materials you will be submitting.

A small number of required forms will be available, but it is suggested that you download, print, and fill out any required forms yourself.  These are all available on our website.

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 SF Express mailing service.  Please note that mailing through SF Express is done at your own risk, as we cannot guarantee SF Express 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 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

To use the SF Express mailing service, you must bring your address (in Chinese). The SF Express fees are listed below and can be paid to SF Express upon return of your passport.

– 1 Passports renewed   1 envelope RMB33 – 5 Passports renewed   2 envelopes  RMB96
