Visa Info

UCC 2016 participants are requested to check with the Chinese Consulate or diplomatic mission in their home country for visa requirements. It is the responsibility of the participant to obtain a visa if required. Please note that the Chinese visa application process can take months, so make sure to plan ahead 2~3 months in advance.

For more information on the process for your home country, you can go to the following website, For 72-hour Visa-free Transit, please visit For a complete list of all Chinese Embassies and consulates, including address and contact information, please visit Ministry of Foreign Affairs, PRC.

For US citizens, if you cannot go to the Chinese embassy/consulate in person, you can entrust a relative or friend or travel/visa agent to come to the Embassy or Consulate for the visa application process. You need to find out which consulate to go based on your residential state. You may contact Nexus Holidays that has been facilitating the process for over 10 years.
