Chinese Visa Application Service Center (“CVSAC”) is only responsible for acceptance of China visa applications, submission of the visa applications to the office of the Consult-General of the People’s Republic of China in Chicago (the “Consulate”) and returning the passport back to the applicant/s. It must be noted that the grant or refusal of a visa is at the sole discretion of the China visa issuing authority and CVSAC is neither involved in the process nor is liable or responsible in any manner whatsoever for any delay in processing or grant or rejection of the visa application of any applicant by the issuing authority, which reserves the right to request further documentation or rejection of the visa application. The China visa issuing authority will make the final decision as to the type of visa, how quickly it will be issued and for what duration it will be issued. CVSAC cannot guarantee the time required for an issuing authority to grant or reject an application. CVSAC shall not be held responsible for, nor will accept any liability for, the actions of the Consulate or other visa issuing authority in delaying or not issuing such applications for any reason whatsoever.
Each China visa applicant is responsible for providing current, complete and accurate information for his or her China visa application.
