Travel Visas

In order to travel to China, all individuals must have a visa issued to their passport by a Chinese Consulate. There are 6 Consular districts here in the United States. These districts tend to be spread out over many states, and each of these Consulates tend to have differing requirements for obtaining a visa. Please note that Chinese Consulates also do not accept visa applications through any mail carrier, including FedEx. Visa applications must be personally submitted by the applicant, or a courier service. In order to make sure your tour is as stress-free as possible, Legacy Journey will take care of the visa application process for you from start to finish! Our travel Visa Service is available to anyone traveling to China. Whether you are planning to go on one of our Homeland tours or planning to travel to China independently, we can take care of this for you.

Gifts of Love

Great Wall China Adoption/Legacy Journey has found a way to let families express their gratitude through a program called “Gifts of Love” that organizes donations. For any tour package, we offer families the chance to donate through our Gifts of Love program. This program was built as a way to get orphanages what they so desperately need to care for orphaned children. With this in mind, you are welcome to make a specific donation to your child’s orphanage, or a general donation that will be sent to one of our 6 orphanage partnerships. The “Gifts of Love” program does all the work for you and your donation will go directly to children in need, supplying necessities for childcare like diapers and baby formula, administrative equipment, training our social workers, or medical mission trips. These donations can be made anonymously online should your donor(s) wish to do so. If you would like to use Gifts of Love as your donation program, please contact your Travel Advisor for a...
