Prior to departing for China, all travelers will need to obtain a China visa in their passport. All passports must have 6 months validity remaining at the time you apply for your China visa. If any passport will expire please apply now for a new passport. When you apply for your Chinese visa you must have at least 2 BLANK VISA pages (separate and distinct pages) in your passport. This does not include the pages reserved for amendments or endorsements. You will obtain your own visa by using a courier service or by personally walking your application(s) into a Consulate or Embassy. CCAI cannot provide visa services for your family. Please find listed below contact information for two Consulates and visa couriers.
