comment What is a good visa agent for obtaining a Chinese visa from the NY consulate?
@MaoYiyi I have neither the time nor the money to replace a lost passport, and besides, who knows what someone else could do with it? I do know that going there myself is an option, but for purposes of this question let's suppose that is not possible for some reason. (Traveling to New York myself would be considerably more expensive and much more disruptive to my schedule than using an agent.)

@MaoYiyi Does it matter for this question? I'll be attending a scientific conference, so I'm applying for an F visa.
