I am a U.S. citizen and have been invited to an event in Beijing, China. How long will it take me to get a visa to travel to China?
The visa processing times listed in the Chinese embassy's web site are:
Regular service: 4 business days
Express service: 2-3 business days
Rush service: 1 business day. Available only in extreme emergencies and subject to approval by the consular officer.
- The above processing time is average and for reference only. Some applications may require longer processing time that a pick-up date cannot be confirmed until notified by the Visa Office.
