Nonimmigrant Visas

The Consular Sections of the U.S. Embassy and Consulates in China are responsible for providing visa services to those seeking to enter the United States for a temporary period and for those wishing to take up indefinite or permanent residence in the United States.

Please visit our Global Support Services (GSS) website for complete information on applying for a nonimmigrant U.S. visa, including a directory of nonimmigrant visa categories.

Beginning in November 2016, all travelers holding People’s Republic of China passports with 10-year U.S. B1/B2, B1 or B2 visas must enroll in the Electronic Visa Update System (EVUS) program. For more information on this program, please visit www.cbp.gov/EVUS .
