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 US. These districts tend to be spread out over many states, and Chinese Consulates do not accept visa applications through any mail carrier. Visa applications must be personally submitted by the applicant or a courier service. It typically takes about one weeks to receive the visa, and your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after you return from China to be issued a visa.
