July 31, 2014:  The U.S. Embassy in Beijing and consulates in Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shanghai, and Shenyang will have an administrative closure for non-immigrant visa applicants on Friday, August 1. Immigrant visa appointments at the consulate in Guangzhou are not impacted.

If you are affected by these closures, you are required to reschedule your existing non-immigrant visa appointment. Your appointment can be rescheduled by logging on to your appointment profile and selecting new dates and times. There is no need to contact the call center or customer support.

We regret the inconvenience caused.

Important Notice: The U.S. Department of State is currently experiencing technical problems with its visa system, which are affecting global operations. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country or visa category. We recognize and deeply regret the inconvenience to travelers. We are doing everything possible to return passports with visas as soon as we are able to complete processing. We regret that we are currently unable to predict how long the delay will be.

We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this matter and apologize for the inconvenience.

Hello and welcome! U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou’s adoptions unit issues all immigrant visas to adopted orphans from mainland China.  Adoptions from China currently account for more than one third of all international adoptions to the United States, making Guangzhou’s Adopted Children's Immigrant Visa Unit (ACIVU) one of the largest adoption units in the world. Since international adoptions began in China, our adoptions unit has issued over 70,000 immigrant visas to Chinese orphans adopted by American citizens.
