American Citizen Service in Kunming

A consular officer from the United States Consulate in Chengdu will be in Kunming to provide limited consular services on Saturday, December 13, 2014.  There are a limited number of appointment slots for this visit.  You must email us to reserve a time; please include your full name and which service you require.  When your appointment has been confirmed, we will email you the time and location confirmation.

The consular officer will be able to perform a number of limited American Citizen Services.  Services available include:

  • Passport renewal applications (no new passport applications will be accepted)
  • Additional passport visa pages applications
  • Marriageability Affidavit Notarials
  • Notarials

For some of these services, some of your materials may have to be brought to Chengdu for processing.  If this is the case, they can be returned to you via the local Chinese EMS mailing service.  However, mailing through EMS is done at your own risk, as we cannot guarantee EMS service.  Alternatively, you can come to pick up your documents at the U.S. Consulate General in Chengdu during regularly scheduled ACS hours.

To use the EMS mailing service, you must bring your address (in Chinese) and an EMS mailing fee as below.

1 Passport renewed:      1 envelope            RMB25

EMS envelopes can hold up to four passports, so if you require multiple passport renewals, you may need to pay additional EMS mailing fees.  For example:

  • 1-2 Passports renewed: 1 envelope
  • 3-4 Passports renewed: 2 envelopes
  • 5-6 Passports renewed: 3 envelopesPlease note the consular officer will have no change available and cannot keep any overpayment, so exact change is required.  Fees are listed below:
