STEP 2: E-MAIL DOCUMENTS FOR REVIEW
STEP 1: GATHER THE FOLLOWING DOCUMENTS ACCORDING TO THE PURPOSE OF YOUR TRIP
American Visa Document Pre-Check Service can save valuable time and reduce stress. Use this service to avoid mistakes or delays. Our experienced visa specialists will review and check your scanned documents to confirm that your application is ready to be filed, and will alert you if any information needs to be corrected or if there is any missing paperwork. Please note we do not charge any additional fees for document pre-check.
COVID-19 UPDATE: The Consulate of China is currently issuing NEW business & work visas only based on the special "PU" invitation. Please have your sponsor in China apply for the invitation and e-mail a copy of it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide further details and specific requirements based on your purpose of travel.
