General Information


July 24, 2014: The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with our passport/visa system. This issue is worldwide and is not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category. We apologize to applicants who are experiencing delays or are unable to obtain a passport, Consular Report of Birth Abroad, or visa at this time. We are working urgently to correct the problem and expect our system to be fully operational again soon.


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.
