ATTENTION: U.S. embassies and consulates are currently experiencing technical difficulties that may result in delays in visa processing and receiving and sending communications. Additionally, applicants who have interviews for student and exchange visitor (F/M/J) visas scheduled for this week should bring proof of payment of the SEVIS fee and customers to the Consular Section should use cash to pay for fee-based services (U.S. Dollars or Renminbi). U.S. citizens may also experience delays in sending and receiving communications. U.S. citizens requiring emergency assistance should call the U.S. Embassy at 010-8531-4000 and press 1 for emergency. The country code for China is 86 if the call originates from overseas.
Welcome to the Guangzhou Immigrant Visa Unit
The U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou Immigrant Visa Unit processes all immigrant visas for residents of the People's Republic of China. This is the only office that handles U.S. immigrant visas in China. Our office also processes immigrant visa applications for nationals of other countries on a discretionary basis.
The U.S. Consulate General is located at #43 Hua Jiu Road, Zhujiang New Town, Tianhe District. (美国驻广州总领事馆,移民部, 广州市天河区, 珠江新城,华就路43号, 510623) Our entrance is on Huaxia Road near Zhujiang New Town Metro Station, Exit B1. For the latest information on immigrant visa appointments, fee payment, and document delivery systems, please consult our authorized partner ustraveldocs.com.
Immigrant visa applicants who are qualified for an immigrant visa interview will be contacted directly by the U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou with instructions for making an appointment. Please do not try to schedule an immigrant visa interview until you have been contacted by the U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou.
To learn about the immigrant visa application process, please visit CGI Stanley, a website maintained by our authorized partner. General immigrant visa application information is also available on the State Department website and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service website.
If your visa application is already in progress, our office will contact you if there is any action you need to take on your case.
If you have not yet had your visa interview, please follow the instructions sent to you by the consulate to schedule your interview. Do not try to schedule an interview appointment until you have been contacted by the U.S. Consulate General Guangzhou.
If you have already had your visa interview, please follow the instructions given to you by the consular officer to submit any required documents.
CGI Stanley is the only company that the U.S. Consulate General authorizes to provide visa information and visa application services. The U.S. Consulate General does not endorse or have a "special relationship" with any other individual or business that offers advice or assistance with the visa process. No one can guarantee the issuance of a visa to you. All U.S. government forms are free. Beware: many visa applicants lose money or are permanently barred from the United States as a result of misleading information and fraudulent applications provided by visa consultants.
