We walked all excited to the China Embassy on 42 street and 12th Avenue NY, NY. As we approached a line outside the building with about 40 people ahead of my friend and I. Walking passed the security detector one most wait on another line for a Gate number. A familiar setting like our DMV Department take a seat if you find one it may be at least a 30 minute wait. After waiting 30 minutes online we were informed one most download application and type up personal information online. On my second trip back to the Embassy I wasn’t informed one most bring not only a copy of the passport, but bring original passport documents.

For each applicant one most bring original application, travel agency itinerary, passport copy, original passport. Just as a reminder don’t abbreviate employment name. If traveling together each applicants itinerary most be the same and each traveler most have their own copy in application with their own name. For no reason can documentation be shared because each application most be process separately
